Inspired by niches but not daring enough to place them in your current interior decoration? Don’t be overwhelmed by it, it’s the simplest and most useful element of design. Here, we gathered 5 pain points that flush-to-wall panels, like Nicchio, can tackle effortlessly adding a fantastic aesthetic to your interior design.
You have a lot of junk stuff in the living room but don’t know how to hide them?
This is the point where a nicely adjusted niche runs to your rescue. An elegantly assembled niche/s, by not taking up much of your space, can create miracles. To name some, we can talk about containing and closing off areas you want unseen, creating storage areas and wardrobe spaces, close off trap doors and shutter boxes, recesses and dead zones. When you imagine how many cables, technology equipment and control panels we have in our houses these days, you can imagine how effective a niche could be to cover them.
Worried if flush-to-wall panels will stand out for their “cabinet-like” looks?
You don’t need to worry. A high-quality niche with flush-to-wall panels and a nice boiserie will make it hard to realize that it’s a cupboard. It rather creates a continuity with the wall when it is closed and fits in as a part of it.
I’m not worried about function, I simply care about decoration
Then again, Nicchio is the answer. A niche, although it might seem like the ultimate cure for concealing modern-day appliances, is actually an ancient tradition inspired by seashells. In Ancient Rome, architects took advantage of this “tradition” by simply adding a decorative recess on the wall to display a statue or another object. In more modern designs, you don’t need to display something in a niche but simply take advantage of its fashionably chic look that matches with your interior design.
Functionality and aesthetics go hand in hand
How about using niches as a bookcase, a placement for your TV unit, or an easy access to your perfume bottles in the bathroom? For example, a Nicchio can double function in terms of concealing bathroom appliances and working as a mirror at the same time.
Change the aura of your interior space, bring in some light
It is observed that a niche, carved or built in a wall, concentrates or disperses the daylight. Therefore, provides a spacious environment. Moreover, putting a mirror in the back of the niche reflects the elements which are situated inside of it and enlarges the space (and even the size of the room).
