They considered (and used!) multiple bathroom storage solutions in the space. The designer recommended leaving the tub in its place and moving the toilet so they can fit a larger vanity. Plus, the six inches of space behind the shower wall allowed the couple to add double-storage niches.

So they had custom a shower niche put in as well as a large in-wall cabinet—perfect for hiding toiletries and other essentials.
