Question & Answers

I've installed my Laticrete Hydro Ban Wall niche in my backerboard. It's sealed in place and ready to tile. Can I use the same thin set mortar I am using on the backerboard or should I use a mastic to adhere the tiles to the niche?

Use the same thinset as the rest of the shower. It is best not to use mastic in a shower. With the heat and steam of the shower the mastic never fully sets.

Excellent Product

I have used the laticrete narrow niche product in several applications, most recently in a master bathroom remodel where we wanted the shower niche to be clean and discreet. We ended up stacking two of the narrow niches vertically above the side wall of the shower bench and they look fantastic-almost like a pillar and provide just the right amount of storage for a two person space.
