Help with Niches

ashinkarevaFebruary 13, 2013
You guys were so helpful with my last design idea. I am getting new couches, rug and window curtains, but I am still very confused about what to put in my accent wall niches to make it stand out. Please help with ideas.

Do you collect anything that you could use? I always think that things on display should be personal to you and not just something you picked up to fill the space. The space and room looks like it could use a pop of colour as well. Good luck, your room looks nice already.

Tall blown glass pieces. You can have them commissioned from an artist. There are a few on Etsy.com and Ebay that will do custom pieces at reasonable prices.

Lighted niches show colored glass pieces off beautifully.

Honestly, with all of the other boxes and tv and speakers, etc. I would drywall them in and paint. Call it a day!

How would you feel about painting the back of the niches? Maybe an accent color from the room? Some nice stainless tile in the back of each niche would really make the wall pop.

I was thinking about paintng them inside some other color. I have one major problem, my husband hates color. Maybe I can get different color paper and show him how it would look. Also, I don't really collect anything. And tall blown glass pieces are a great idea. I am looking at etsy now. Thank you!!!!

I like the niches and think they would look beautiful with glass art pieces or Raku displayed. Maybe consider mirror on the back to reflect your new art if your hubby doesn't like colour?

I have never heard of Raku, but just googled it and wow! I need to look into them. Do you suggest that top niches and vertical niches were all kind of the same style??

I love Raku pottery and it can be very affordable to collect. I would suggest keeping a similar collection in the niches to avoid it looking cluttered such as all glass or all raku. That way it will look intentional instead of just looking like nicnacs. Think art gallery display...

Can you take a pic with the lights on? I think that might generate even more ideas.
