If you have a wall niche, you have probably struggled with exactly how to use it. Perhaps you have even guided it through many design phases, some better or more awful than others. But the professionals at homify advise that the easiest way to choose how to arrange your already existent wall niche or future wall niche, is to consider a couple key questions: 1) what is the natural function of the space it is in? 2) what added function would you like in that space? These two things go to the heart of what a wall niche is--a groove in the wall that adds function to the function of a larger space, without hogging space. So you can create some real dynamism and innovate via wall niches. From bookshelf niches to garden niches, we have compiled a quick list of some wall niche ideas we think you'll want to try yourself. Have a look!
