Q: We plan to install a new shower stall and want a unit with built-in shelving. What choices do we have to get plenty of shower storage? We are open to tile or wall panels; the big issue is having extra shelving.

A: You’re in luck. Since removing a bath tub and installing a larger shower stall is now a popular trend, many companies are offering shower locker units as an additional option.

Shower lockers can be molded into prefabricated wall panels, or they can be separate shelving units that can be incorporated with custom tile or solid-surface shower stalls. It’s basically a tall and thin recessed locker unit with adjustable shelving to let you personalize and organize your shower storage.

Other shower locker accessories can include deep baskets, hanger hooks and a foot-resting ledge, giving these locker units a leg up over standard shower shelving.
