Location of the niche contributes a lot to its design theme and functionality, a niche in the staircase area can be used to put items which are used regularly. If niche is near the TV area, it would make a lot more sense to store DVDs, video game and other entertainment material rather than stuff you don’t require.
Collection of photographs can also be exhibited in the niche, collection of frames and layouts to showcase collection in style. Putting Mirror as a background in niche will help you reflect the back half of any object, it helps you creating a three dimensional look even for the ordinary objects such as candles. Pic Courtesy
The most common way to use a niche in the home is to use it as a bookcase; you can lay the books in a manner that creates an artistic appeal. Combination of upright and flat lying books is really aesthetically appealing and turns the space into book art. Pic Courtesy
Last but not the least, make the niche itself a bit of a work of art, simply paint the niche a bolder color than the rest of the room and create an effect simply by paint and you don’t have to put anything in niche. Impressive and budget friendly!
