Before and After – A Bathroom Renovation With Industrial Touches

Miami based interior designer Francis Dominguez from EFE Creative Lab, has shared some before and after photos of a master bathroom renovation that was done for a downtown Miami loft.

The original bathroom was old, dated, and had a bulky bathtub.

Francis proposed a focused on using simple materials that created contrast without being overwhelming.

Subway tiles with dark grout, and custom built wood elements were added to the space. A concrete countertop was added to the wood vanity to complement the industrial theme throughout the loft apartment, that also features polished concrete floors and exposed concrete ceilings.

9 Shower Niche Ideas To Create The Perfect Bathroom

9 Shower Niche Ideas To Create The Perfect Bathroom

If you want your shower to look more like a spa than a storage place for various shampoo bottles and soaps, then consider installing a shower niche in your bathroom.

A shower niche is a built-in shelf that’s recessed into the wall of the shower to provide storage space for bathroom products. It replaces the need for a caddy hanging from the showerhead, a corner shelf that’s hard to clean, or bottles sitting on the shower floor. It allows you to keep your shower looking clean and organized, and provides a more luxurious appearance.

Now it’s time for some design inspiration. Below, you’ll find examples that show a variety of ways that shower niches can be designed, from almost completely blending in, to standing out with hidden lighting, to multiple niches, as well as ones with glass shelves inside them.


1. Horizontal Shower Niche

A horizontal shower niche is one that’s longer than it is higher. This is ideal if you have a larger shower and want to take advantage of the wall space.

2. Vertical Shower Niche

Taller than it is wide, a vertical shower niche is often a good choice when there’s a smaller shower stall.

3. Shower Niches That Blend In

If you want your shower niche to have a seamless finish, consider using the exact same tile that you have on the walls that surround it. This way the shower niche will blend in, and not draw attention away from other focal points, like the hexagonal tile accent wall or the vertical window in the bathroom photos below.

4. Contrasting Shower Niche

A shower niche that’s lined with contrasting material or color draws attention to the shower. To create a contrasting look, choose the opposite color. For example, if you have lighter shower walls, line your shower niche with a darker material, alternatively, if you have darker shower walls, use lighter materials.

5. Shower Niche With Hidden Lighting

Lighting in the shower is a design choice that is often overlooked. If you want to add lighting to your shower, but also want to highlight your shower niche, you can install waterproof LED lighting. By installing a strip of LED lights, the shower niche becomes a focal point in the bathroom, and adds a warm relaxing glow, helping to achieve a spa-like bathroom experience.

6. Framed Shower Niche

One way to make your shower niche stand out is to frame it. In the example below, the niche has been highlighted with a black frame that complements other black details, like the shower frame and shower wand.

7. Multiple Shower Niches

Why have just one, when you can have two? Having multiple shower niches allows for more storage, and if you share a bathroom, each person can have their own shelf. Multiple shower niches positioned vertically can also solve the problem of having shelves at different heights for taller and shorter family members.

8. Shower Niche Designs With Shelves

If you do decide to go with a vertical shower niche, and you want to make the most of the available height, consider including shelves. These can be made from the same material that you’re covering your shower niche with, or you can have glass shelves installed.

9. Multi-Height Shower Niche

To accommodate multiple height bottles, you might want to think about a niche that combines both a vertical and horizontal design. This allows taller bottles to have plenty of height, while smaller bottles and soaps can be placed on the smaller shelf.

Add This Blue, White, And Gold Bathroom To Your List Of Design Ideas

When Barker Associates Architecture Office was designing the renovation of a townhouse in New York, they created this bright and welcoming bathroom that combines blue and white tiles with gold accents and a white vanity.

Let’s take a closer look at the design elements they used in this bathroom.

The Skylight

The design of the bathroom includes a vaulted ceiling that guides the eye up to the skylight, making the space feel large and open.

The Vanity

The white vanity has clean lines that form a rectangular shape, a built-in sloped sink, gold hardware in the form of the faucet, taps, drain, and drawer pulls.

It’s decorated with an orchid, adding a pop of green and purple to the space, while soap and moisturizer bottles have been left clear to keep the focus on the bathroom design.

The Lighting

A white tube sconce with gold accents is mounted above the mirror, drawing the eye upwards, and creating a soft glow for the bathroom.

The Hardware

Complementing the gold hardware on the vanity and lighting are the other hardware items found through the bathroom, like the towel holder, the supports that hold the glass shower screen in place, the shower head, taps, and hand-held shower. These items sourced from Watermark Designs, add a touch of glamour to the bathroom, creating a sense of luxury.

The Shower Niche

In the shower there’s a built-in shower niche with a simple white frame that’s tiled in the same tile that surrounds it. The shower niche provides a dedicated place to house shampoo bottles and soap, keeping them from gathering on the floor or in a shower caddy.

The Tiles

Throughout the bathroom, the tiles have been kept to three different colors and two tile types. In the shower, there’s scalloped tiles (also known as fish scale tiles) that transition from white on the upper half of the shower, into blue tiles that line the lower half. Both the scalloped tiles wrap around the walls of the bathroom. To complement the blue tiles on the walls, lighter blue square tiles were used to line the shower floor.

The Walk-Through Closet In This Master Bedroom Leads To A Luxurious Bathroom

Working with interior designer Leah Steen, the architects designed the bedroom with a large sliding glass door that provides plenty of natural light and opens up to a balcony. Adjacent to the sliding door is the walk-through closet.

The walk-through closet has custom wood cabinetry with a dark gray wood paneling finish. A tall window at the end of the closet keeps the space bright, while a gap in the closet on the left side acts as a small bench or place to put an outfit when getting ready.

The master bathroom, which can be accessed from both the closet and the bedroom, has been clad in grey marble. A built-in bathtub and glass-enclosed shower line one wall of the bathroom, while the toilet is hidden from view behind a partition wall at the end.

Coates Design Architects has completed a bathroom with a sunken bathtub as part of an overall house project on Bainbridge Island in the State of Washington.

The bathroom has a number of design elements that work together to create a calming environment. Clear stained fir plywood adds a natural touch to the space. At one end of the bathroom is the shower, with a white and light grey mosaic tile shower, that even features tiles on the ceiling.

At the other end of the bathroom is a 4ft x 9ft window that frames a spectacular view of the Seattle Skyline from across Elliot Bay.

Enjoying the view is the ‘ofuro’ or Japanese style soaking tub. The custom one-of-a-kind bathtub measures in at 3.5′ long x 4.5′ wide x 4′ deep and is made from cast-in-place concrete.

A Glass Enclosed Wet Room Is A Bathroom Design Idea Worth Considering

SDH Studio Architecture + Design recently completed a new house in Bal Harbour, Florida, and as part of the interior, they created a large master bathroom suite.

The bathroom, which features a floating double-sink vanity, wood-like tile floors and walls, and frosted doors, also has a glass enclosed wet room.

The wet room is home to both the shower and the freestanding bathtub, allowing the main area of the bathroom to be kept dry. The glass walls allow the natural light from the horizontal windows to filter through to the remainder of the room, keeping it bright and feeling open.
