Bathroom shelves

Our bathroom has a 4' by 4' cove where the toilet rests. I am gutting the entire bathroom and would like to install some sort of shelving above the toilet. I was thinking about laying some 2x12 on top of blocking between the studs at two different heights and then finishing them with drywall. Does anyone have any other suggestions? Thanks.

Why don't you use adjustable shelf brackets mounted on the wall-then you could move shelves up or down when necessary?

Shelves

Be careful that the shelves do not extend too far from the wall and interfere with the use of the toilet.

I'm not sure I would want to use drywall for shelving, even on a solid 2X12 backing. Drywall is too easily damaged and a 2X12 might not be the most stable wood to use.

Tempered glass makes a great bathroom shelf. They are impervious to moisture. You can also use hardwood for shelving. I like to hide the fasteners so that the shelf looks like it floats. You can get some good design ideas by googling bathroom shelves.
