Storage and Towels

Since the shower is a convenient place to wash hair and shave, it is likely that numerous products will be used there, and storage for items used daily will be important. A shelf built into the shower wall or surround at a convenient height to the user is a good solution.

Towels should be placed within reach of the person in the shower and 15 inches (381 mm) to 48 inches (1219 mm) above the floor. Extra towels will need to be stored close by. Refer to the previous section on towels and storage at the bathtub and to Bathroom Planning Guidelines 22 and 23 for guidance.
