Ceramic Shower Caddy Niche

AC Products Recessed Ceramic Shower Caddy Niches
The recessed shower caddies come in 3 models. The BR797 is the taller more slender caddy, designed for a couple of small to mid size bottles in the top compartment and a bar of soap in the lower compartment. This caddy has been available for a long time and does come in the 80ish available colors, as well as four of the stoneware colors.

Then the BR791 single compartment and BR793 triple compartment are large caddies. About 13" x 13". Both can hold a lot more. These two caddies have been available for a few years now, yet AC Products is still keeping them exclusive to being available only in the standard gloss and matte colors. And then three of the stoneware colors.

Please take note of the overall dimensions and the cutout measurements we have shown below. Since the two larger caddies fit into a 12x12 hole that should be around 3-3/4" deep, you really need to plan your placement well. On a new or fully remodeled bathroom, you will see what is in your walls beforehand and know if any obstructions exist. But, on a finished bathroom that you are thinking about cutting a hole in the wall and installing a caddy, you do need to be aware of potential electrical wires, plumbing, and studs in the wall. They could inhibit your perfect placement and force you to shift left or right, or up or down. Sometimes horizontal braces are found in the wall between studs. So if you have a way to check what is in your wall before cutting, that would be advised.

Be aware that bathroom walls which are an exterior wall of the house may also create some challenges, such as concrete block that you might have to cut into.

Each of the three choices has a flange all the way around its front perimeter and that overlaps your cut out. This gives a nice framed look on the face of your tile and conceals any jagged tile edges. Professionals will lay the caddy into a mud pack in the wall, aligning it level left to right, and level on its front to back axis. The wall cavity can also be framed and then a high quality adhesive caulk can hold the caddies in place. It is important that the caddies are supported within the wall surface and NOT just glued to the edges of the hole by their flanges. The BR797 weighs about 4 pounds. But the other two weight 10 to 11 pounds each. They are quite heavy for ceramic. So you want them adhered into your wall, and not just by the flange perimeter.

The extended photos when clicking on the pictures below will show you the back sides of the caddies.

Clicking or tapping on any of the 6 images above will allow you to see expanded photos of the back sides. We decided to show the 900 Series shower caddies on this page also. They are the same shower caddy. The 7 in the part number just changes to a 9 to denote the stoneware colors. The stoneware caddies are also shown on the 900 Series page as well as the recessed bath hardware recap page.

To view images of all the ceramic color choices, please select that link.

AC Products also publishes a color cross reference chart of how their colors coincide with some popular brand colors. If you know your tile brand and color code, you can see if there is a reference in that chart. There use to be over 140 color choices, now that has been reduced to around 80ish. Some colors are just way out of date and not as popular anymore. Keeping glaze made in obsolete colors just does not work. Glaze dries out over the years and becomes unuseable. So some colors just have to be deleted.

Then we have a third help page set up for colors. It will be limiting for help with the BR791 an BR793 caddies since they are restricted to the standard color options only. Color comparing and selection help page. It has group photos of the whites, and other tones. It can help with choices for the BR797 caddy. Just note that all the nice greys, browns, and others are not available for the two larger caddies.

What can each caddy hold?
What we stock, and what we order as requested:
The shower caddies are big and take up a lot of room, so we limit our stock on them to the following:
BR791 and BR793 both stocked in C1 gloss white and C5 gloss black.
We have started keeping a couple of the BR791 and BR793 on hand in C34 gloss ice white and C70 gloss biscuit.
The BR991 and BR993 stoneware version we keep on hand in S904 smoke grey stone and sometimes the S909 dark bone stone.

The BR797 is a little more popular. We stock it in C1 gloss white, C3 gloss bone, C5 gloss black, C12 gloss sterling silver, C16 gloss almond, C34 gloss ice white, C70 gloss biscuit, and then in M31 matte biscuit, M66 matte white, and M81 matte almond. Usually 2 or 3 of each are kept on hand.
The BR997 we keep in stock in S901, S904, S909, and S910 stoneware colors.

Any of the other available or allowed color choices, we order as we receive requests for them. Normal lead time is 3 weeks for us to receive them. Quite often, orders for one BR791 or one BR793 we set up as a direct ship from AC Products because they ship them one per box with no other items in the box. They have nice corner protectors and a custom size double box that they ship them in. And one shower caddy actually reaches their minimum order value. So direct ships for the BR791 and BR793, and their stoneware cousins, are easy to do. Still allow two weeks production time for most. AC Products does tend to keep a fair amount of these in stock, but only in the more popular requested colors.

The Stylish 700 Series is large. We have divided it upon several pages. For a complete summary, view the Stylish 700 summary page
