Comparing L-Shaped Corner Shelving with Tile Niches or Shower Caddies

One L-Shaped tile corner shelf provides 22 inches of storage capacity – which is twice as large as a niche, and structurally immovable as compared to a suction cup storage organizer mounted over your shower arm. Each floating tile shower shelf can be installed on either right and left-facing walls and may be stacked or staggered, which will provide you with endless tile shower organization ideas. The L-Shaped configuration hugs the perimeter tub and shower walls, without overcrowding your personal space, which is so valuable, especially in small-sized showers and tubs.

Let’s compare tile shower shelves with a tile shower niche. Although tile niches are a beautiful utility, they have a couple of shortfalls. First, they are restrictive and rarely provide enough storage space for shared showers. In these cases, homeowners are relegated to hanging a shower caddy over their shower arm (the place where your shower head is attached). When too much weight is placed on the shower arm it can crack undetected inside the wall, allowing water to leak into the interior wall cavity creating mold growth. Second, they are very expensive because they can take hours to build. Conversely, two Boundless L-Shaped corner bath shelves will install within 15 to 20 minutes and will be less than half the cost of one niche, while providing 4 times more surface area for your storage and organization needs. If you can justify the cost, we find that niches in conjunction with shower tile shelves provide the ultimate in style and functionality.

Planning Bath or Walk-in Shower Storage

Here are some considerations when planning Boundless tile shower shelves on your custom tile shower walls. Storage surface area for containers is only one consideration when planning shower organization. It is also important to eliminate clutter and hanging interference, which TileWare Products thoughtfully addresses. A great starting point is to consider your wall tile dimensions in conjunction with shelf spacing. The objective is to provide plenty of headroom for salon-size containers between shelves, so bath essentials don’t end up on the shower floor or overcrowding the tub ledge.

Generally speaking, tile shower corner shelves are set on grout lines, so tile size will determine the spacing between shelves. Here’s a good rule of thumb, we suggest spacing shelves somewhere between 10”, for standard size containers, and 12”, for salon size containers. It’s easy to hit these dimensions with mosaic tiles because they are typically configured in 12” x 12” sheets. It’s easy to hit the dimensions with subway tiles because they are typically sized between 3” to 4” in width. Even large format tiles like 12”x 24” can hit the dimension on the width side. Tile widths that are 1”, 2”, 3”, 4”, or 6” will always work for a 12" layout. Larger increments will require that you cut tiles, which is not a difficult task… just a planning detail.

As mentioned, L-Shaped corner shelves are finished on 2 sides, allowing them to be situated in both left or right-facing tile shower corners. Also, the L-Shaped shelf has an offset leg, so you can strategically position a hook (click here to see plain shelves) for hanging poofs or scrubbers. This unique TileWare invention allows poofs and other hanging objects to be layout so they don’t interfere with containers situated on lower shelves. In the same tile shower corner, the shelf can be rotated to reposition hook features so they don't interfere with lower shelves. These tile shower shelves with an integrated hook feature provide a dual utility that amps up functionality with clever styling. See our shelving layout ideas and design themes which provide both inspiration and instruction on how to configure either stacked or staggered shelf looks.

Tile Shower Shelves that are Durable and Easy to Maintain

Each bath corner shelf is made in the USA of acrylic solid surface which is durable and nonporous. It has a matte finish on both sides and is water, stain, and chemical resistant, providing an impervious surface that is easy to maintain, clean, and disinfect. When each tile shower shelf is permanently installed in tile using thinset they are practically indestructible, providing a lifetime of serviceable utility. Tile shower corner shelves will easily support 50 pounds of weight per tile shelf, which is a lot of bath essentials.

Large Storage Shelf w/Optional Bath or Shower Tee Hook

The Boundless floating shelf offers 22 inches of storage capacity as a stand and organizer for shampoo, soap, body wash, and other personal care items. The L-Shaped is over 2X larger than the typical 9 inch corner shelf with an up-to-date corner look. Homeowners, designers, and installation professionals love these shower shelves for tile, especially when combining shower hooks to organize poofs, washcloths, exfoliating sponges, loofahs, back scrubbers, pumice stones, or soap on a rope. Hooks are made from a stainless steel material with premium plated coatings, specifically designed for wet environments like tile showers.

Where to Use Boundless Corner Shelves and How to Install a Corner Shelf in a Tile Shower

Our creative tile shelving in shower ideas are intended for either new or renovated tile shower projects. Though primarily designed for showers, they can also be situated near a toilet, sink, and over the vanity countertop where space is limited. Additionally, near kitchen appliances, laundry room, mudroom, or anywhere integrated tile shelving frees up counter space. To ensure decades of performance, TileWare only endorses professional tile installation methods and materials when installing our bathroom shower shelves. It’s important to know that corner shelves install with tile setting, using latex-modified thinset adhesive. If you're a professional contractor or a weekend DIY warrior you can confidently and reliably mount these shelves on tile walls. Whether installing natural stone, porcelain or ceramic tile material or mosaics, subway, or large format tile, these shower corner shelves will integrate simply and perform exceptionally.

To install correctly, shelves must be placed under the tile edge and integrated with thinset adhesive. Please review the installation instructions packaged with each shelf. We designed these shelves to be installed with tile (not after) to ensure that they are extremely strong and durable. Boundless corner shelves for tiled showers have the same installation timing as your other tile materials. Always purchase shelves in advance so they are on the job site before you start your project. Conversely, corner shelves that install after completed tile will require drilling through shower waterproofing systems, exposing your home to water infiltration and bacteria growth.

Waterproofing Tiled Showers - Considerations and Cautions

We especially advise homeowners to pay careful attention to waterproofing details when building aDIY shower tile installation. Homeowners need to carefully plan all their accessories needs before engaging in a tile shower project using either,Goboard,Laticrete Hydro Ban Board,Wedi board, orSchluter Kerdi Board. STOP! Don’t penetrate yourwaterproof membrane sheets,liquid waterproofing membrane, orfoam backer boardby drilling through them for the purpose of attaching accessories like shelving or grab bars. Not only will drilling void your waterproofing warranties… but the wall anchors used simply don’t work to securely and permanently mount accessories in tile surfaces. Make the decision that tens of thousands have made, including TileWare’s waterproof-anchoring and mating accessory products to eliminate all unwarranted drilling and waterproofing failures. TileWare is the only shower accessory system designed to protect yourwaterproofing membraneinvestment.
