Default Corner Shelves for Shower

We have a tiled walk in shower and I would like to add a couple of corner sheves without breaking out the tile for fear of too much damage and no spare tiles. I would also like the shelves to look like they "belong" so the ones that are metal or plastic really will not do. I would pfere something molded that looks like ceramic in cream or white. I envision attaching the shelves in to the tile and then caulking around them with a caulk that resembles the grout. Can anybody assist me with sourcing the shelves?

Paul

Tile stores usually have these and if your installing over tile then a good quality silicone will do the trick. Of course you will have to set up a brace to hold the tile while the silicone sets. In order for these tiles to stay in place you run a good bead of silicone on the back in a wavy pattern and then when it dries you silicone around the edges.
