The architectural style has evolved a lot over the period. But one thing that has still been retained and often repeated in modern architecture is the niche carved into the wall. Earlier it was usually a semicircular arc style niche to keep statues, religious pictures and lamps. With time it has become a decoration piece on the wall, though it still serves the purpose to exhibit the artifacts and holiday pictures.

We know that pictures explain better than words. So let’s have a look at the 16 pictures of beautiful walls adorned by niches and get inspired.

​1. Below the window pane

If you can accommodate, the niche below the window pane can be used to beautify the space which otherwise would have gone waste. It’s a simple decoration here with clean white pebbles.

​2. Clean and clear

It’s sensible to make the separation wall useful too. The clean cut of the niches resembles the one from the bygone era but it looks cool and modern.

​4. Just like that
