The niches became fashionable and invaded all the spaces of the house. But if you have a place that fit perfectly is in the kitchen. It looks like they were meant for her. The kitchen niches work very well for those who want to decorate and store objects, supplies and utensils in a simple and uncomplicated way.
In varied shapes - square, rectangular and even round - the niches bring practicality to the day to day and leave the kitchen with a relaxed look. And the cool thing about this idea is that you can make the niches yourself, with the material you want and that most suits the style of your kitchen.
The niches have their origins in the home of the grandmas (you must remember the crockery displayed on shelves) and help create an environment with one foot in the retro and another in the rustic. However, they still manage to add a touch of modernity to the kitchen. In short, niches are a harmonious combination of styles.
The colors, materials and shapes used for niches will determine your style. For example, a niche made with crates is more rustic while a niche made of glass is more elegant and sophisticated.
Be that as it may, make sure that it will help to make the look of your kitchen practical, functional and full of personality.
