Product Description

As shower remodel professionals, my brother & I have installed A LOT of shower shelf products over the years. There were always a lot of poor quality, flimsy surface mounted options available, but no permanent, recessed, waterproof, easy to install, “finished” shower shelf options. All the recessed niches out there either required tiling/ grouting, OR they were crude stainless steel niches, designed only for retrofit installs (no waterproofing). As such, we designed a complete, recessed stainless steel shower storage solution. A shower niche that checks all the boxes (including those you aren’t yet aware of) – The Redblock N1014-M shower niche was our first baby, then came the N1028-M; an evolution of the N1014-M design with more storage space and two suspended shelves.

Looking for built-in shower storage?

Look no further. Since the Redblock shower niche installs between the studs of your shower wall, it’s completely recessed shower storage. You no longer need to worry about about bumping into any surface mounted shelves anymore. The contents of your Redblock niche are always conveniently within reach, yet completely out of your way.

Want to avoid the cost & complication of a tiled shower niche?

The Redblock N1028-M shower niche is a completely finished shower storage solution that installs in minutes, and requires no tiling. The niche interior is 10″ wide. There’s a 3.5 inch space above the top slotted shelf, 11″ between the first and second shelf, and 13.5 inches in the bottom section, so it offers a ton of storage, as well as a brushed stainless steel finish – much easier to install and maintain than any tiled niche, AND waterproof integrity that’s far superior to any retrofit shower niche.

Unhappy about your bar soap slipping away, or simply melting away?

The rounded drainage slots on our two integrated niche shelves were designed to solves both problems, while still being easy to clean.

Tired of the moldy soap scum buildup in the back corner of your niche shelf?

Since the slotted shelves in the Redblock shower niche are welded only to the sides of the niche box, a 1/2 inch gap remains behind the shelves. This eliminates soap scum buildup in the back corners of your niche shelves, AND makes them super easy to clean!

Worried about rust?

The Redblock shower niche is constructed entirely from super corrosion resistant, low carbon, 316L stainless steel. We decided to convert our shower niches (& our shower shelves) from regular 304 SS to 316L SS because of the increased use of chlorinated shower cleaning products since the pandemic, AND the corrosive effects of hard water on standard 304 Grade stainless steel. In other words… no more worries about rust.

Stressed about the leaky niche stories you’ve heard?

The Redblock stainless steel shower niche has been carefully and thoughtfully designed to be a seamless, waterproof beast. The body of the niche (including the shelves) are welded together into a unibody frame, making it impenetrable to water. The two slotted shelves are 3mm thick, and the body is made from 1.2mm thick stainless sheets. We created the M-Block™ flange assembly (which includes mounting flange & tile trim) to firmly attach the niche to the shower wall, to integrate perfectly with your shower wall waterproofing membrane (sheet or liquid), and to provide an attractive trim for your surrounding porcelain wall tiles.

Tired of the sharp edges and crude finish of most stainless steel shower shelf products?

Redblock has created a new standard of shower niche shelf finishing: CNC chamfering. This technique creates ultra smooth, burr-free edges on the perimeter, and around every slot on both shelves. Another reason why the Redblock niche will exceed your expectations.

Irked about damp and moldy washing puffs and washcloths?

When you’re finished showering, just hang up your washing puff, brush, cloth or loofah on one of the shelf accessory hangers on either shelf, and it’ll be dry for your next shower!

Shower Niche FAQ

    Q: Does the lower shelf have a slope?

    A: Yes, the bottom of our shower niches have a 1 degree slope outwards to prevent water pooling.

    Q: Will my soap slip off the shelf on the N1014?

    A: No. All our niches with shelves have slots in them to prevent your soap from slipped off. However, it may slip off the bottom level of the niche due to its slope. This level is best used for shampoo bottles, etc.

    Q: How do you install tile on your shower niche?

    A: Our niches are already finished with an attractive brushed stainless steel finish so no tiling is required. You may be confusing our niche with one of the various prefabricated niche boxes that are available on the market that requires tile to be installed on their surface.

    Q: When you mention “built in tile edge trim” on your shower niches, what are you referring to?

    A: We are referring to the raised 1/2″ wide flange that surrounds the niche perimeter. Your shower wall tile gets installed right over top of the mounting flange so this raised area serves as a tile trim around the niche perimeter.

    Q: Does your shower niche come in any other colors or finishes?

    A: At the moment we only offer our shower niches in a brushed stainless steel finish.

    Q:  What is 316 stainless steel? And what is the difference between 316 and 304 stainless steel?

    A:  316 stainless steel is one of the most corrosion-resistant types of steel available. It’s more rare and costly than 304 SS due to its molybdenum content, which provides its superior corrosion resistance. 304 SS is still very corrosion resistant but it does not perform well when exposed to more corrosive cleaning agents like chlorine bleach. 304 SS is used in virtually all consumer products including appliances, kitchen sinks, cookware and bathroom fixtures.

    Q: Can I order a custom sized niche?

    A: No, currently we are not building any custom niches. However, we are planning to create one or two more niche models in the near future. You can join our mailing list if you’d like to stay informed about new products.
