Bathroom decoration with niche

If you like a minimalist environment and want to have a decoration as simple as possible in your bathroom, using the niche as a decorative item will be an excellent option. On the other hand, if you want to use it as a frame for your decorative item, we have brought different options for this combination that will allow you to have a decorated bathroom.


If you are a flower lover, the niche can serve as a frame for this work of nature. In addition to being beautiful, the flowers and plants bring a freshness into the room by referring to nature. Small pots will make the bathroom more delicate. The colored flowers, on the other hand, are ideal for environments with neutral colors.

Children’s decoration

But, if you have an exclusive bathroom for a child, this space, in addition to decorating, will help organize toys. Here it is important to leave the lowest niches so that it is within reach of the little ones.

It is possible to abuse the colors and formats and place them in unusual places, such as built-in cabinets under the sink, for example.

Decorative items

However, if you don’t like plants and don’t have children at home, there are several other items that can be displayed in the niches such as towels, toilet paper, books and even matching containers.

The golden tip is not to overdo the decoration, a niche with several different items or several niches with different types of objects can end up giving the feeling of a disorganized bathroom.

Synonymous with sophistication, modernity and elegance, built-in niches are here to stay when it comes to bathroom decoration. They are more common on the walls inside the box, but nothing prevents them from being colored in other areas such as the wall above the sink or the toilet itself.

Placing a niche on the central wall, that is, on the wall facing the door, will provide greater attention to the item, so it is important that it is always organized so as not to make a bad impression on visitors.

When the niche is built in, it allows you to decorate it with its own coating. In fact, this model differs from the traditional one by having a decorated background. An excellent option is to use the same lining as the bathroom insert.

Wooden niche in the bathroom

There is a very special reason for us to post a topic focusing only on a bathroom with a wooden niche. The first and foremost reason is that most items found are made of this material, however, it does require some care.

Although it is very beautiful and matches almost any bathroom color, wood should not be used in areas that are more prone to getting wet. As it is a natural coating, wood ends up deteriorating more easily in areas where it is in frequent contact with water.

Also, another reason this topic is extremely important is that you can get your hands dirty and make your own niche. It is common that sometimes there is a piece of furniture that is no longer used at home, and why not reuse this material?

As the famous “do it yourself” you can make niches however you want, including the size, shape and color. This way, you will have a bathroom with a much more special niche.
