Re: Using tile to add a shelf

Tempered glass unless intentionally abused won't break easily.
(sample site below...using as a reference)

Looking at your picture, I would (drill-anchor through tile) put two side mounts and two back mounts to hold a glass shelf.

You would get light and still have space for storing shampoos, soaps, shaving stuff...

I have a glass shelf (tempered) in my bathroom and its fine (though not in the shower as I already installed a two shelf insert from swanstone)

And if it does break, tempered glass breaks into thousands of tiny pieces that are unlikely to cause serious injury. Unlike non-tempered glass which can break into large razor-sharp piece.

Correct. They also laminate some glass so that if damaged, minimizes the pieces. But I do understand being on the cautious side.
