Heres one i just did in my own shower. The sides are angled back just a bit and all the edges are mitred.The tile on the back is the same as the floor. It might be me but i like the smooth,flush mounted look instead of the frames.

yeah, I walked in and they were already framed so I didn't get a chance to locate them myself. I think they were 8" deep. don't really like doing the pebbles on niches but it's so far in it's not going to see a lot of water I guess.
there's also another single niche on the opposite wall I didn't post. Guess she was really into them.

Nice work Bruce.
For niche in an entry way you could frame the tile out in wood and save some cash. The trim could match the rest of the room or be painted to match the grout. This is a small one in a dry area in a bathroom,so it is not as grand as you want in a entryway.

Love the bathroom niches... I am doing two of them as well, but really looking for some neat designs for the back of the niche. I am thinking of using a glass & Marble mosac tile on the back of it and framing the rest out in wood. It is 4x4 so it could get a little expensive. The tile the client wants to incorporate cost me $26sqft

Essentially, I've been building the same niche over and over again for years. The shelf is fashioned from a marble tile. Every once in a while I get to throw in an extra shelf.

Niche pictures

Here on the forum we get a lot of questions about how to trim niches, design layouts, placement and the like. I've been collecting photos of the mighty fine work of my fellow craftsmen and crafts ladies. Here is a display of their work. If anyone has more niche photos to add, please do.

For the DIYer;

The niches below represent several ways to install a niche. Choose what works best for you considering the grout joint layout, tile size, material choice and the overall chance that when its done you'll the Missus will be happy. If you have any questions about what you see or don't see, feel free to ask.
