Storage Solutions for the Shower

The shower is often a sacred space, a refuge where you can unwind, relax, and rejuvenate after a long day. However, the serene ambiance can quickly turn chaotic if your shower essentials live in a state of disarray due to the lack of proper storage solutions. Cluttered shelves, scattered toiletries, and tangled shower caddies can disrupt the tranquility you seek.

The thought of shower storage should not cause you any stress! While you can easily design and plan your storage solutions during the concept phase of a new build or bathroom renovation, know that storage can be added as an afterthought too. You know, to accommodate those extra trips to your favorite pharmacy.

Thankfully, Schluter Systems offers options that can be integrated into the plan and design of your shower, and a few that can be added on after the fact, as well.

Shower niches are practical and pretty.

One of the most popular and versatile storage options in a shower is the shower niche. A shower niche is a cubby-like, recessed shelf that integrates seamlessly into a shower wall or bathtub surround, creating a streamlined and unobtrusive look. Schluter offers a selection of prefabricated shower niches, eliminating the need for complex custom installations. 

Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD-SN shower niches are prefabricated, waterproof, and made from KERDI-BOARD. These niches are ready to be tiled and easy to install as well. With four sizes available, and the option to install the niche either vertically or horizontally, you can select the one that best suits your needs and bathroom design.

Let it shine, let it shine.

Want to shine a little light on your shower essentials? Opt for the KERDI-BOARD-SNLT prefabricated shower niche that features LIPROTEC LED lighting. The warm, diffused light adds the perfect amount of ambiance to the shower. And the best part is, the whole system is completely code-compliant and secure, so there is no need to worry about running electricity in your shower. Have a look at the illuminated niche here:

Add a shelf while tiling, or after.

A shower caddy does not have to be your only shower storage afterthought. Schluter offers a line of various shelf options that can be installed while tiling, or as a retrofit application. These shelves are available in five shapes, five patterns, and six textured color-coated aluminum finishes, as well as stainless steel. Whether you prefer a corner shelf, a wall shelf, or a shelf nestled in a shower niche, Schluter has a solution to suit your style.

The corner shelves fit perfectly into the shower corners, maximizing space while adding a modern touch. They come in three geometric shapes: pentagonal, quadrilateral, and triangular, and offer a seamless integration with your shower design. The other great thing about these shelves, is unlike shower caddies, they are designed to let the water drip out between uses, so no more scuzzy shelving for you!

Feeling creative? Build customizable storage that suits your space.

For those who seek complete creative freedom in their shower storage design, Schluter®-KERDI-BOARD is a fantastic option. It is a multifunctional, waterproof building panel that can be used to create custom shelves, niches, benches, and more. KERDI-BOARD allows you to tailor your shower space precisely to your preferences and bathroom layout. Create a custom recessed niche that expands from wall-to-wall, or have it span floor-to-ceiling with integrated shelving. A pony wall, a tile ledge-like shelf or even a multi-tiered shower bench make for great storage too.

KERDI-BOARD is lightweight, easy to handle, and provides a stable and level foundation for any shower storage or other custom element ideas you envision.
