Here are a couple of tips for determining the size of your above-door shelf: When determining depth, stand directly below the door frame facing into the space. Look up and look straight ahead. How far out could a shelf come before your peripheral vision registers it? You don’t want to feel like you’re walking into a tunnel, with a shelf out very far. Furthermore, if you happen to have a vent above your door (as is the case in this tutorial), you want the shelf to be narrow enough so as to allow for adequate airflow and ventilation. The width is probably easier to figure out – it can go from wall to wall, or just above the door frame, or somewhere else logical that your space’s architecture dictates.
This is a view of the plumbing wall in the tub/shower. Basically, cold and hot water enter into the system via their separate pipes. They join up at the mixing valve, which is where the tub/shower handle will be located. The water can then be directed via said handle down to the tub faucet or up to the shower head.
If your shelf isn’t traveling from wall to wall, consider cutting a 45-degree angled corner off the protruding corner. This is entirely optional, of course, and it does add some complication and effort in trimming out the shelf edge. But it makes for a nice, polished, and softer edge. (Particularly if your above-door shelf, like this one, is readily visible in a mirror or other reflective surface.)
