01 of White Subway Tile Shower Niche Trim
Shower niche trim is a finishing touch for your showers to help blend in the edges of a recessed shelf. There are many options available for shower niche edge trim, no matter what style of tile you have chosen for your shower niche. A shower niche with schluter trim is a popular option that provides a smooth edge without the need for caulking. Schluter trim is usually made of PVC or metal, such as aluminum, steel, or brass that conceals the raw edge of your niche.
Alternatively, shower niche pencil trim offers more of a border around your shelf. Pencil trim is made of thin, cylindrical pieces of tile with rounded edges—similar to the shape and size of the pencil. For more inspiration, here are several shower niche trim ideas to get you started on your next reno project.

A built-in shower bench with silver metal trim becomes a functional and stylish addition to a bathroom shower adorned with white and gray hexagonal floor tiles. The gray marble walls, punctuated by a niche trimmed in silver metal, are elegantly showcased behind the frameless glass enclosure.
As Annuska Menoita, an interior designer with a rich experience from diverse projects, suggests, “When designing your shower, explore options for integrating niches and seating within the shower walls. Keep in mind the necessary wall thickness for these additions.”
She further elaborates on a preferred approach, stating, “Incorporating a thick partition wall that delineates the space between the bathroom and shower not only provides functionality with niches and seating but also adds a distinct and stylish element to your shower design.”
This gray marble tile shower with a built-in bench beautifully illustrates Menoita’s point, offering a practical and aesthetically pleasing solution that enhances the overall shower experience. Whether you’re in the process of a bathroom remodel or just looking for ways to upgrade your existing shower, consider this idea for a sophisticated and modern shower design.
