What Houzz contributors are saying:
An affordable alternative to the wall niche is a shower ledge. These provide flexibility for what you place on top because there aren’t any height restrictions, and you can specify the length to span the width or length of your shower.
Do away with the shower doorTrying to fit a shower into a very small room? Rather than being thwarted by not having space for a nice shower door, consider a wet room.If you can fit in a walk-in shower, like this one, self-contained bar the lack of door, rather than one that’s just open within a square room, then do – there’s something that feels good about stepping out of the shower, rather than just stepping towards the basin from beneath the shower.
Create a wet room Even the narrowest space can become a valuable shower room. How to fit it out to best effect? Tank the entire space to do away with the need for a screen or door; build in a narrow storage shelf for bathroom bottles; fit an overhead shower with built-in lighting; pick a light-reflecting wall colour; and install a large mirror on one of the longest walls to make the room seem wider.
