Tips on how to use the living room niches
What color to use?
The niches are very versatile and can be bought - or even made by you - in the most varied colors. However, the tip is to harmonize the color of the niches with the other colors present in the decoration. This is not to say that the niche needs to be the same color as the wall, but that it should be in harmony with it.
You can choose to decorate with clean niches, leaving everything in the same color or choose colored niches to break the predominant tone in the environment. It will all depend on the style you want to give your room.
What is the most suitable material for the living room niches?
There are niches made of wood, metal, glass and even cardboard. The most common are wood, but they are all equally durable, sturdy and beautiful. What will count on this item is your personal taste and the style of your decor. A more modern proposal fits nicely with metal and glass niches. Already a more bare decor can do well with a niche of cardboard or pallet, for example.
What is the ideal niche size and format?
The niches can be round, square, rectangular, triangular, octagonal and etc, etc., etc. We could cite different models of niches, but what really matters is the decoration of the room. In general, the square and rectangular shapes combine with every type of decoration. The round niches are great for romantic and children's proposals. But if the intention is to promote a modern decoration, bare and creative, bet in formats such as triangular and octagonal, for example.
As far as the size of the niches is concerned, it is necessary to observe what will be placed in it. A small decoration will not look visually interesting in a large niche and the opposite is also true. Just as it is not legal to wrap various objects in a small niche. In this case it is better to opt for a larger or two niches instead of one.
And how to organize them on the wall?
The niches placed in a straight line or symmetrical way fit best in clean, sober, classic and sophisticated proposals of decoration.
For modern and industrial style decorations, for example, you have more freedom to organize them irregularly and asymmetrically.
Embedded or superimposed?
The built-in niches are beautiful and leave the room with a very clean look. This type of niche is made in plaster wall or in wooden cabinets.
The overlapping models, the most conventional, are hung directly on the wall.
Replace nests with racks and shelves
The niches are also great options for small rooms or for those who want to simplify and minimize the decoration. They can quietly replace larger cabinets such as racks and shelves, increasing the circulation area.
