I am renovating my bathroom and have a 25 cm gap between the end of the bath and the wall. We are thinking of boxing it in and having a slightly raised shelf (5cm) at the end of the bath and tiling it. Anyone have any ideas/photos of how to fill the gap? Many thanks!

Yep, I think I'd just do that. Or maybe you can fit a very slim shelf in there?

We boxed and tiled a similar sized gap - now a very handy shampoo etc shelf smile

If you can have the taps/shower at the opposite end of the gap/tiling it's better, leaks and all.

We had this in last house, not done by us. As well as tiled top, the underneath was a sort of hidden cupboard which bathroom cleaner lived in. Was fine, very useful use of a small space.

Box in with tiles on top.
I've seen clever slide out drawers with shelves that could go underneath in the dead space: might be useful for spare toiletries, towels, loo roll.

We set our bath out a bit to have a 'useful shelf thing' tiled behind. Could do the same at end ....

I would want to build the wall all the way up the ceiling and put different recessed shelves in. Bit like this one in a shower.

We had a lidded cupboard or shelf/drawer thingy for spare loo rolls etc.

I'd do like Pikachu'a picture or build it all the way and make some pull out larger type thing in the side.

Just measured ours and it's 5.5 cm ...we also have a deeper shelf ay other end with a cubby hole underneath .. perfect for loo roll ,bleach etc

Sorry op I read your post as 5cm ! The other end of my bath is 40cm

We had one of these built.

We boxed and tiled the gap. It's very useful for the DC's bath toys.

I had this area boxed in and tiled, there is a half wall behind to enclose the cistern next to the bath so I asked the builders to create a niche which they tiled, good for bath stuff/soap.
