As part of a full bathroom remodeling I have added several niches to accommodate various shower uses. Two of three niches are shelves for shampoo, conditioner, soap, etc. The third is a rather useful idea for the women of the household; a foot rest for shaving legs and storing the razor (my brilliant daughter's idea). The size is small and will have a 3"x6" subway tile as its back. The dimensions of the niche are 6 1/8" wide, 3 1/8" tall and 3 1/2" deep. The smallest niche I can draw is 6" x 6". I'm okay with the width, but the height is too big.

There is no indication on the limitation of size. What might be restricting the niche size? Is there an undocumented niche size restriction?

Looks like there is.

 

Fill it in so the size looks correct.

Thanks for the suggestion to fill it in, but how?

Try dragging it's height down in a 3D view.

Dragging the height to 3" worked!! Thank you.

 

Now the tiled foot rest niche looks too deep, less desirable and a bear to tile and grout. The illustration was very helpful in depicting how it would look and function. The boss decided that 6" x 6" is better, but just the same I learned a new method of modifying the niche.
