How wide of a shower niche do you think is preferable?

2 months ago


My shower niche is on my knee wall with the plan to put glass above and currently is a whopping 28 wide by 15 high. I think it is too big and the contractor has agreed to reduce the size to whatever I want. The shower is small (3x4) and my spouse thinks a larger niche makes it look airy but right now it looks too big.

Any guidelines as to width of a horizontal niche? I have beside it a 12x12x17 shelf so there is enough room for products.

You guys are so helpful. Thanks in advance!
