EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT RECESSED WALL NICHES
Sweeping the interior design world with their minimalistic and contemporary flair are recessed wall niches. They take a regular dry-wall from zero to hero.
If you can name a shelf, we have probably seen it: built-ins, pull-out, honeycombs, floating planks, industrial racks — the list goes on. The style landscape was hungry for an ode to texture, history and purpose, bringing to life interior niches on walls.
Whether they are storing lamps, pots, florals or books, wall niches are subtly rising into prominence within the coastal and Scandi design world.
And we don’t want it to stop. Here is everything we love about recessed wall niches.

The perfect house for your best decor, recessed wall niches can be as humble as something built between posts or as broad as an entire feature wall. But its most notable feature is that it does not protrude on the wall.
The nooks are geometrical works of art in themselves, providing you premium real estate for minimalist rooms. Niches can create a three-dimensional effect on a formerly flat, featureless wall, heightening the character and balance within a space.

Your objects situated within these purpose-built wall niches are elevated more than they ever would by shelf or stand.
While they are ideal for bathrooms to provide a cubbyhole in the shower for all your bare essentials, they can also be functional in other areas, such as your living room, bedroom or laundry.
We love when the recessed niche is coated in the same material and colour as the walls, as they create a tonal, minimalist hideaway that plays on highlights and shadows.

As lovers of minimalist architecture, we love seeing a paired back structure emerge into the design scene. If you have a recessed wall, we would love to see it in action – send us your photos on Instagram by tagging @abiinteriors or use the hashtag #AbiYourWay.
