Knowing how to make the most of your walls can be tough, so let us shoulder all that hard work for you and showcase some fantastic ideas that interior designers have put into place. From hallways to bedrooms and every space in between, formerly boring or standard walls have been given the designer treatment and we just know you're going to love the result, so let's take a look! 

1. A triptych of texture

With stone backdrops and perfect spotlighting, these wall recesses have really brought an entrance hall to life. If you are looking for a fancy idea, you can choose lights which switch colors. 

2. Super storage

When you need more space but don't want to build out, these wall cavity shelves look to be a brilliant solution! The perfect solution to present all your favorite accessoires.

3. A funky twist

If you prefer a little relaxed décor, throw away the symmetry rule book and install sporadic, differently shaped and size niches!

4. Think outside the wall

Even smaller room divides can get in on this action, if you hollow out some shelves and they complement the back wall perfectly.

5. Perfectly placed

For a dramatic look, large, symmetrical niches either side of a fireplace really work! They're perfect for displaying art and collections too. 

6. Small and beautiful

You don't have to go all out to embrace wall niches, so this small but absolutely lovely floral display is a great modest take on this trend. Way to liven up some stairs!

7. Loud and proud

If a wall niche isn't quite as bold as you are, how about a variation a theme, with built out display cabinets? The lighting really makes them shine.

8. Rustic intepretation

We love these niches that look almost hand made! Giving out a perfect Eastern vibe, they are so eye-catching and really work wit the rough wall finish.

9. Straight from the craftsman

Speaking of hand made, look at this plaster work! With shelves having been sculpted from the wall materials, the look is so organic and cohesive. Amazing!

10. Making more of a feature

With a window to the outside, this perspective-altering niche is all sorts of confusing but appealing! We bet the rest of the house is just as unusual too.

11. Bedroom cubby

Sleek, practical and offering lovely dimmed lighting, this bedroom niche is everything an avid nighttime reader needs!

12. Feature walls gone wild

It's not enough to just have statement wallpaper now; these days you need contrasting papers and a niche! What a clever way to make a one off headboard!

13. Dazzling color

Wall niches are the perfect spot for a color pop and we think these built-out displays really hit the nail on the head! So bright and stylish!
