46 Cool And Practical Niche Shelves Ideas
Not enough space for displaying and storing things? Want to add interest and decorative value to some space? I’ve got a solution – niche shelves! Niche shelves will not only give you that desired space for storage and display but also will add decorative value and interest to any room where you will make them. But first let’s find out
What Is A Wall Niche?
A wall niche is basically a decorative box nested inside a wall of your home. Wall niches are nothing new and today more homeowners embrace them as smart storage solutions in pint-size spaces. People love them because they’re fully customizable, and they offer a creative way to squeeze in some extra storage out of a blank wall. But not all niches have to be functional, and in fact many are purely decorative. Contrary to mountable shelving, which can get in the way (and make rooms look smaller), wall niches don’t extend past the surface of your wall and in one niche you may get a lot of shelves at once.

Where To Make A Niche Shelf?
The most popular places for such wall niche shelves are kitchens, bathrooms, entryways and living rooms. They’re often built into showers, and you can put bottles of shampoo or body wash, hair product, or even daily vitamins, medications in a bathroom wall niche. It’s also a great place to have a mirror for easy makeup access and application. An entryway wall niche shelf is a great place to hang key hooks or leave your wallet. You can also use this space as a little charging station for phones. These functional entryway niche shelves guarantee you won’t leave home without the essentials, while also keeping things organized and out of the way. In your living room a niche shelf will be a perfect spot to place small conversation pieces, figurines, and collectibles.

How To Style A Wall Niche Shelf?
As I said above, niche shelves are very versatile, and that means you can change them according to the style, colors and needs of your space. They can feature different shapes, from arches to very strict geometry (asymmetry is also welcome!) highlighting the architectural features of your space, they can show off different matching or contrasting colors if you want and can be accented with wood, for example. You can choose how to decorate your niche based on the theme of the room. Get inspired by these and many other ideas below!
