Wish I could help William but can't. Someone should be around with experience in both.

I am by no means an expert, and have physically seen only one brand of niche and that is the ProForm product sold Noble Company.

They had exactly what I was looking for, a niche with a curve in the top. So happy that I bought two, one for each bathroom.

Bill I'm with your wife.

-Less chance of leaking. The less perforations in the tile structure the better, as far as I am concerned.

-Easier. A stupid arrow point bit and some caulk does it.

-Deeper. The corner shelves are at least 2 inches deeper than any niche I have seen.

-More of them. Have 4-5; some for sponges, razors, shaving creme, soap, shampoo, conditioner, whatever.

-Easier to clean. Water drains out of them. Less soap muck.

-Coordinated Look. Buy your baskets from the same designer line as you towel racks and sink shelf and TP holder, and brings design elements together for the bath, either art deco, victorian, or ultra modern.
