Niches in Home Design

Do you wish there was a way to display personal belongings in the kitchen or bathroom without having to take up cabinet space? Or perhaps you’ve been trying to think of ways to conveniently store everyday items without cluttering up countertop space. A niche could be the design solution you need!

What Is a Niche?

In home design, a niche is a shallow recess or alcove in a wall, used for display or storage. A kitchen niche is typically installed above the range, often in the backsplash. A bathroom niche is sometimes located near the vanity/sink area or in the shower stall for convenient storage.

Niches offer a couple different benefits. Not only can they be used for aesthetic purposes, but they can be a convenient solution for storing everyday items needed in the kitchen. They are also ideal solutions for any areas:

  • Kitchens
  • Bathrooms
  • Basements (particularly the wet bar/entertainment area)
  • Family rooms/living rooms/great rooms (for displaying décor near the fireplace and mantel)

“ I had several ideas on how to overhaul my galley kitchen and family room but Wentworth gave me three fantastic designs that had never occurred to me. I ended up choosing a combination of two of the designs. When they began work, they were at the house working every single weekday, with no exceptions. Their attention to detail went way beyond what I would have noticed. They cared a great deal about the quality of their work, and took pride in it. They finished ahead of schedule, and we could not be more pleased with the results. ”
