At New American Homes we love details. One of our favorites is niches. If installed during construction, they cost only a few extradollars, but they make a space more interesting, and they’re practical, too. Here are examples from our own custom home
At left is a kitchen area with two niches – one for the mixer and another behind the stove for cooking condiments and oils. In the photo at right is a shower wall with three stacked niches – perfect for sponges, shampoos, soaps, shower gels, even a rolled bath towel or two.
The bottom photo shows a front hallway niche – a decorative feature that adds a welcoming touch to a home.
