5 Accessories to Include in your Custom Tile Shower

When you are thinking about what features to include in your bathroom remodel, a custom tile shower is a popular option. Tile bathrooms are both visually appealing, durable, and easy to clean as well. These qualities are important to many homeowners when designing their shower space.

If you are choosing to install a custom tiled shower, there is always something you can do to enhance the space- no matter how big or small you are going to make it.

Here are 5 Great Accessories to Consider…

  1. Niche
  2. Shower Seat
  3. Wall Mounted Baskets, Shelves, or Hooks
  4. Grab Bar
  5. Lighting


A shower niche is an open storage space, like a cubbyhole. It is a space where you can keep all your shower items nice and organized. We love shower niches because they create more space rather than taking up extra space in your shower area.

Shower Seat

Seating is a great way to be safe, relax, and gain stability when in the shower. If you have a large shower, we can do a built-in tile seat. In smaller spaces, we can get you a wall-mounted foldable teak wood seat bench. Often, they come in different sizes so we can accommodate the needs for different size showers.

Wall Mounted Baskets, Shelves, or Hooks

The right amount of storage is important even in the shower. We always want to have a place to put our toiletries, so adding mounted baskets or shelves is a great option. It’s important to consider where you want to put hooks in your bathroom to store towels or bath robes.

Grab Bars

No matter your age or health installing a grab bar is always a good idea. By planning ahead during construction, extra framing can be added inside the walls to make sure grab bars are securely installed. While suction grab bars can be added after the fact- they tend not to be as secure as wall-mounted ones. This is because grout lines do not allow for strong suction.


Just like in the kitchen, task lighting is always helpful in the bathroom- especially the shower. Including a wet-rated lighting fixture will make your tile shower experience even better. Typically, a recessed light will offer a clean and modern look that will blend with your home’s style.

Other Fun Features to Consider…

There are many other cool features that we can include in your bathroom remodel. Heated flooring and towel warmers are a great addition to homes in New England, the extra warmth in the Winter is much appreciated. We can add bidets and bidet attachments, skylights, extra windows, and even jacuzzis. The list could go on and on.

No matter the reason you are tackling your bathroom renovation we hope that you choose to include some of these great features to make a big impact in the space.
