Incorporating a shower niche is a great way to add smart, professional looking storage to a new shower. So, it’s no wonder that many homeowners express curiosity about the cost of shower niche purchase/installation. As shower storage specialists, the pros at GoShelf know all about shower niches, including their perks and pitfalls. Today, we’re here to give you a full look at how a shower niche gets installed, what it typically costs and why our GoShelf corner shelves may be a better solution for an already tiled shower.
GoShelf Experts Explain the Cost of Shower Niche
If you’re exploring sleek ways to add more storage to your shower, a shower niche may come to mind. As for the cost of shower niche building, the price will vary depending on:
- The tile type/design intricacy
- The size of the niche
- Other factors unique to your project
Typical pricing ranges from around $75 to $300 and up, including the labor required for proper installation and waterproofing. If it fits your budget, a niche can be a viable add-on feature for a new shower install. However, if your shower has already been tiled and you’re not keen on doing a major renovation, you may wish to consider GoShelf stone corner shelves instead of a niche.
The beauty of these floating shelves is they can be installed in a finished shower by simply removing a bit of grout, meaning there’s no need to worry about damaging the tile or compromising the integrity of the walls/waterproofing. A DIY GoShelf system can even be added to complement an existing shower niche – our customer Chester put in a set of four matching Cappuccino shelves in the corner beside his niche (pictured above) to triple his storage space.
