Meet Jane Evans

During college, I lived in a small, old house. My roommates and I loved it's cozy charm and, for the most part, didn't have any problems. However, one day, we noticed that the carpet in one of the bedrooms was wet--and it couldn't be dried. When we called our landlady and the repairman, they discovered that the shower not only needed to be re-caulked, but there was mold everywhere under the carpet. We had to move out for two weeks while they fixed the problem. Soon, thanks to the contractor (the likes of whom you can read about), we were back at home.

Why You Won'T Regret A Shampoo And Soap Niche With Lighting

Remodeling your shower enclosure gives you the ability to make this space as swanky as you want. While there are lots of additions that you can consider to make shower time more enjoyable, one idea to consider is a shampoo and soap niche built into the wall. The presence of this feature gives you more room in the shower, given that there won't be a shelf or rack for your shower accessories jutting out into the space. When you start looking at shampoo and soap niches, you'll likely come across some that will pair well with LED lighting — which your remodeling contractor can install. Here are some reasons to opt for this feature.

Easier To Identify Your Accessories

Unless you're someone who enjoys putting the bathroom lights on their highest settings when you shower, you might find that the shower enclosure can be a little dark. This might be the atmosphere that you appreciate, but visibility can potentially be an issue — especially if you wear glasses and your eyesight is poor without them. Instead of having to bend to identify the shampoo bottle from the conditioner, you may notice that the inclusion of lights in your shampoo and soap niche makes it easier for you to see which accessory you want to grab.

A Visually Pleasing Night Light

LED lighting costs very little energy to run, which means that you can leave the light in your shampoo and soap niche on around the clock without hardly noticing a change in your electrical bills. Using the light in your shampoo and soap niche as a night light can thus be appealing. Instead of a tacky-looking night light that takes up valuable outlet space in your bathroom, you'll have the visually pleasing glow of your niche light to guide you through the bathroom at night.

Better For Cleaning

You may also find that when you turn on the LED light in your shampoo and soap niche, in addition to whatever other lights are present above the shower enclosure or in the bathroom, it makes cleaning the shower easier. No one wants a shower in which mildew is permitted to grow, but if you have trouble seeing some of the shadowy areas — perhaps even in the corners of the niche itself — this is indeed what can happen. The bright glow that the LED lights produce will make it easier for you to clean every surface thoroughly to keep your newly renovated shower looking its best for years to come.
