Can I use a chrome insert (11 3/4 x 11 3/4) inside your niche?

Asked by: KawarthaGirl
Good morning, Yes, it can be installed inside. Normally it would be set around the opening at the outer edge to do the transition between the inside and the wall tile. Make sure to provide slope to allow water irrigation towards the drain.

In a new build project, is there any additional framing requirements to accommodate this niche? I am getting ready to install the drywall. Thanks.

Asked by: kossy
If your framing is standard 16" OC and 3.5" deep than NO. However with the larger niches if you want to use them in the horizontal way, example the 12x20 niche but have the 20" going horizontal from left to right ... then yes your framing would need to be modified to accommodate the new custom size.

This products is specified at 12 X 12 inches. Can someone confirm if this is an "inside" measurement? Thanks.

Asked by: dougmwood
Yes .. The inside dimensions are exactly 12"x12"x3.5" however for installation reasons the outside lip/edge goes 2" further on each edge making it 16"x16" to center with your wood framing.

Can the niche be used on an outside wall ? Living in the cold for 6 months. If so would you just not insulate that part of the outside wall ?

Asked by: Thereds
Typically the Insulation needs to be modified/removed so NO ... but if the insulation does not get modified then YES. In most cases you can't so just install their new shower shelves.

Schluter Systems Kerdi 12-in x 12-in Shower Niche is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 37.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Definitely worth it! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] This is my first time installing a niche, and it was a breeze. As lightweight as the material is, it was not fragile as I had feared. Easily installed into the wall cavity with a an extra stud installed and handful of drywall screws. Once in place, it was as rigid as the surrounding cement board. It held the thinset just fine as I adhered my tiles. The finished installation is perfectly flush and looks great!
