When to Niche and When to Not

We all want more storage, but it can be hard to find the right place. If you have a limited amount of space but still need to store a lot of stuff, consider using niches. Niches are great because they can add storage without taking up any extra space! This article will discuss when it's best to niche and when you should leave well enough alone.

Decide on a style.

Look around your home and paint a mental picture of all the rooms. Do you have an eclectic mix of styles and themes? Can you see a theme emerging in the way your home is decorated? This can be helpful, as it will give you clues to help guide your decisions while decorating.

The first thing to consider when choosing a style is how well it fits the room. Does it complement or clash with other elements in the room? Is it too similar or too different from what’s already there? The second thing to consider is whether or not you like it—and whether or not you think others will like it as well! You want something that suits everyone who sees it and gives them good vibes when they walk into your home.

A third factor is practicality: Is what I’m buying going to last for more than a few years before becoming dated or obsolete? How much does this cost per month/year (in terms of money, time spent maintaining/updating)? What problems could arise from using this material over time—will my investment become more trouble than it's worth down the road if I don’t maintain properly now - before any problems start happening!

Assess your space.

The first step to deciding if a new niche is right for you is assessing the space where you plan to use it. If you want to store heavy books or display delicate china, a cabinet with glass doors might not be your best choice. A tall unit that can hold several rows of books might be an option if your collection includes volumes in various sizes and shapes.

Consider what's already in your home and how much room you have left for more furniture before committing to a new piece of furniture.

Add storage niches for extra space.

  • Add storage niches for extra space.

  • A niche is a recessed area in the wall, usually between two doors or windows. They are great for hiding bulky items you don't need daily but want to keep close at hand—think of DVDs, extra blankets and pillows, and kitchen appliances like an ice cream maker or slow cooker.

  • To create one, measure your doorway and the distance between each jamb (the sides of the door frame). If this measurement is longer than 16 inches (for example, 17 inches), use shims to adjust it so it will accommodate your desired object size.

Niches are a great way to add storage without taking up space.

Niches are a great way to add storage without taking up space. They can be used to store shoes, hats, coats, towels, and other items. You can also make a niche look like an ornate piece of art by using it as a display area for photos or pottery.

If you have a small bathroom with limited counter space but many windows, consider installing shelves underneath one or more windows above the sink area. Shelves placed here will not only provide additional storage for your toiletries and cleaning supplies, but they'll also serve as useful places to set down things that need quick access — toothbrushes and razors, for example — when getting ready in the morning before heading out the door in the evening.

Need more storage? Niches are a great solution.
