    Afternoon all,

    I've got a tiled alcove in the bathroom below:

    The wife is wanting to put shelves up in it. Not really sure on the best approach. We're thinking 2 shelves, not taking too much stuff, just shampoo etc. As you can see the location is above a bath. However, despite the shower attachment the area is not phenomenally wet, the shower is just to help with getting the daughters hair rinsed out after her bath.

    We've got some mahogany effect paneling on a shelf in the bathroom so I was thinking something like that with a suitably treated bit of wood. We could look at glass shelves, but this would mean getting them custom cut to fit.

    Any suggestions gratefully received.

    Custom made toughened glass, with stainless brackets. Anything else with suffer from moisture.

    White uvpc will be unaffected by moisture and easy to clean. Or 2 large format white tile cut to size glued togther back to back.
