Niches are perfect for displaying a favorite statue or vase while adding interesting architectural elements to any area of a room. Our surface mount niches don’t require any modification to existing structure to be installed while our traditional niches will need to have space cleared behind them.
Fine Art Deco accent features are manufactured with a dense architectural polyurethane compound (not Styrofoam) that allows it to be very durable and 100% waterproof. It is installed with architectural adhesive and/or finish nails. It can also be finished with caulk. A major advantage of polyurethane is that it will not expand, constrict or warp over time with changes in temperature or humidity. It’s safe to install in rooms with the presence of moisture like bathrooms and kitchens. This product will not encourage the growth of mold or mildew, and it will never rot.
Niches have been used in homes for almost 2000 years, first made of white marble in Nero’s home. Most niches are still white, and for many years were mostly made of plaster. Now that many modern architectural products are made of urethane, custom millwork and details such as recessed niches have become affordable for any home improvement project. Niches are distinctive architectural accents. Often used to display sculptures, vases, clocks, plants and flowers, niches are beautiful and functional details that add value to any home interior. They are often used in main hallways, dining rooms, foyers, and staircases. An important aspect of a niche is its ability to concentrate or disperse light, so its placement should be based on the availability of light, either sunlight or interior lighting fixtures. Ceiling accent lights are often added as a compliment above a niche. Niches made of urethane can be easy to install for anyone, simply cut a hole in the drywall and place the niche inside. These niches will also require little maintenance in the future, and offer beauty and value to your home for decades to come. The Architectural Depot offers niches in varying heights, widths, and depths to fit the scale of your home.
