Considering a stainless steel shower niche?

If you appreciate the bold and beautiful look of a “finished” Stainless Steel shower niche, or you are interested in the waterproofing qualities of these products, you may still be a little confused about the various options available. Some are polished, some are not; some are compatible with your shower waterproofing membrane and some are not. If you interested in learning more about this unique shower fixture, you’ve come to the right place.
