here's a niche from a master bathroom shower renovation in Apollo Beach, Florida.
customer wanted the glass & marble mix accent band on walls.
I suggested to run it through the center line of niche and then tile the back of the niche.

here is one I just did... they recessed the shower controls because their glass door is designed to swing into the shower and they didn't want it to hit the valves. they also wanted a shaver shelf for the wife so this is what I designed.

That must have been hell laying out the diagonals with that pattern.

Inward swinging shower doors have been contrary to code every place I've worked. They swing out so you can exit in a hurry if you have to -- scalding water, etc.

I was told here that outward swinging doors had to do with allowing access by emergency personnel if one falls/is down in a shower.

Thanks Dave... and yes John it was a PITA turning that 45 around the corner and recess. I'll mention the emergency access logic to the homeowners... the man is diabetic and does have issues with his feet and sight. Thanks for mentioning that John R. I would think they can get a hinge that swings both ways. PA has a minimal amount of "code" enforcement. Although many should have a permit for elec/plumbing... 99.9% of remodel work is done w/o a permit. Even on jobs that have a permit, new construction/additions, nothing I do tile wise requires an inspection/sign off.

Here is one I just did, nothing special but I used Kerdi board and cut in my niche after I pulled layout, and it worked out perfectly.

Looks good Levi. What mud did you set the tile with?

I actually used LFT on that one. I am not worried for one minute about the mud not curing under the slate. I normally use Kerabond though.

Thanks Levi. I normally use 3n1 by Tec. I have been wanting to use the Kerdi board, but I won't be able to use the 3n1 with it, due to it being a modified thinset.

Here's a contemporary one that I thought turned out pretty cool. I edged the tub surround with the same Schluter.
