Can this be installed above a tub?

Asked by SLM July 17, 2018

Answers

I see no reason why it couldn't be installed above a tub. It is 61 inches tall, so you need to factor that in. Be sure read the directions for prepping the wall, as you need to make sure it is waterproof behind it.

not sure on the corrosion aspect of it, but the soap should not be a problem. Had mine in over a year and no problem. I had to rework something in my shower, so I am moving it to the new bathroom I am building. No problems as of yet. Not sure about the warranty, but no problems here. Hope that helps

Sleek and modern
I had this professionally installed as part of a bathroom remodel and it works very well. The contractor was impressed by its design and function.

shelves don't fit correctly
The product is an extruded aluminum half tube. The problem is the tube is not symmetrical and you don't realize this until you try to install the shelves. I had to force the shelves into position and pry them with a thin putty knife to get them to slide down over the clips.

Not worth the hassel
I will be brief as The Home Depot sensors its product reviews to eliminate any criticism. Home Depot is only being a drop shipper from Kohler for this product and can do nothing to fix problems. IMHO avoid buying this product from them. The instructions provided on the webpage are incorrect, you should go directly to Kohler

Overpriced - but - This serves a terrific role in updating our 2nd 1/2 bath into a full bathroom. The space was a little short on elbow room as a shower stall so this Kohler niche (and a couple smaller Laticrete niches) really opens up the area nicely! It shouldn’t cost more than $100 bucks tho.

I was surprised that the shelves and top and bottom are plastic. At the very least I would have thought the Kohler branding plate would have matched the metal of the unit. I haven't installed it yet. So far everything seems sturdy and installation instructions are straightforward.

It assembled rather nicely, I did question the fact you have to trim one of the spacers to make it all fit. Other than that, once it was in, it looks and preforms great.

Unfortunately, because of the depth of my walls I was unable to use this tower, but if it had worked I would have been very happy.I ended up getting a Kohler shelf instead and a couple of corner shelves.

Very classic just a bit small!
I really like it! Not bulky; very slim! If it would've been bc it's a bit narrow, I would've given it a five star. Appearance is great and easy to install.
