Between The Studs, Create A Recessed Area For Your Toilet Paper With This Bathroom Remodel Tutorial

By on August 29, 2017

I’ve had some requests for more information on the recessed toilet paper holder we designed, so I thought I’d try and put together a little tutorial rather than emailing everyone individually.

Back when we renovated our bathroom, we had to decide where the new toilet paper holder was going to go. Now that we had a sliding glass shower door we couldn’t hang it beside the toilet like it was before. There were three options – 1) attach it to the side of the vanity, 2) have a free-standing holder on the floor, or 3) attach it to the wall across from the toilet.

The first choice was shot down because it was too close to the toilet and I didn’t want holes drilled into the vanity anyway. The second choice didn’t have a chance because Tom hates those holders that stand on the floor. Not to mention that it would be in the way whenever we were entering or exiting the shower. So that left mounting it across from the toilet. Tom was concerned that we would still bump into it since it would stick out from the wall and the room isn’t that large anyway, so he decided he would build a box and inset it into the wall.
