If you are tired of loose shower caddies falling off their hooks or decaying into rusty buckets, consider going up-market and installing a recessed bathroom shelf from leading providers like Ripple Systems. In fact, savvy builders are including these as part of a standard new build bathroom or shower design. Usually, more than one storage shelf is the way to go so as to accommodate the many people using the bathroom and everyone else who wants to leave some things in there.
Don’t despair if you have an old house where nothing was attached to the walls to help you out with storage, these built-in shelves are easy to install. As long as you are working with a stud wall, the basic process is to draw an outline of your niche against the wall, cut out the rectangular outline, insert the bathroom shelf into the cut out area and seal in, paint or tile over.
