Niche shelves
Small corners very big

In every apartment there are small, difficult to use corners and niches, with which it is difficult to do anything. This is due not least to the fact that the desired furniture, unfortunately, does not have the right dimensions for this very corner. However, there is usually more space hidden here than the first glance would suggest. With the right niche shelf, the bare corner can quickly be used as storage space. Thus, the space at your disposal is used efficiently and elegantly.

Advantages of niche shelves in your home

Take advantage of your living space

The biggest advantage of a custom niche shelf is that it makes space usable that would remain unused without it. Whether under sloping ceilings, between other furniture or in an indented wall - storage space and floor space can be created everywhere.

Suitable furniture off the rack can often be found only with a lot of luck. It is even rarer that a shelf, which meets the conditions and requirements, additionally pleases. Alternatively, if they fit the interior style, rolling carts and niche carts can be placed in the corners of the house. However, they don't offer nearly as much storage space as shelves or cabinets. In addition, carts usually don't offer locked compartments or doors so you don't have to store things openly in them.

With a shelf, which is adapted to the dimensions of the niche, the entire space offered can be used completely. The individual piece of furniture will enhance your interior and give your apartment a personal, homely character.

Thus, order becomes not only simple, but also beautiful.

Small rooms

Living in a small space can be more pleasant than it may sound at first. Even the smallest apartment can be individual and chic. The available space must only be used properly to effectively create space.

Unsightly household and utility items should be hidden behind cabinet doors and in storage closets. Thus, the visible space can be decorated. Often, however, only difficult to design small corners and niches remain for this. So it is all the more important for the coziness of your rooms to design them beautifully while using them efficiently.

In small nooks perfectly create storage space with a shelf made to measure. Choosing the configured niche shelf in a light color additionally helps to brighten up the often darker niches a bit. Books and photos will find a nice place in your home. If you choose the furniture in a bright color like red, the dull niche will quickly become the eye-catcher of the room.

The eye-catcher simply distracts from the limited space. With a niche shelf there are no limits to your imagination. You decide which of your needs the furniture is tailored to and how it looks.

It is also possible to close some of the compartments with cabinet doors. This also gives your niche shelf additional space to store things not visible to everyone. Here you can store papers or even christmas decorations. Every corner of the apartment can be efficiently used for organizing your home.

Niches under sloping ceilings

Everything is usable with

Furnishing rooms with sloping ceilings is often a real challenge. But with the right living tips and tricks, even a cramped-looking attic space can be transformed into a cozy living oasis.

So that the attic room does not look uncomfortable, it must not be placed too full in any case. Under the slopes opens up a lot of space, which can be used ideally and space-saving with the right shelving system. It doesn't matter how low the knee floor is. With the right niche shelving, the adjacent corners also offer plenty of space to either beautifully display or also hide all kinds of small items.

Especially the niche under a skylight is perfect for a shelf. Because above it offers a well-lit floor space. On it you can round off your room design with houseplants. In addition, photos or other beloved things can be displayed here very well in the light.

Color design in rooms with sloping ceilings

Dark colors quickly make the room look smaller and oppressive. A bright and cheerful color scheme in combination with good lighting, on the other hand, helps to open up the room. This is a good basis to convey the desired feeling of home. When choosing furniture, this should also be taken into account. For example, if a shelf in a dark corner is white, it brightens the whole part of the room. Also, the individual compartments will look less poorly lit.

Of course, your effective, individual shelving system can also bring color into the niches. Furniture in eye-catching colors is like a magnet for glances. If you intentionally place one in a niche, it will quickly become the centerpiece of your room design.

Since in the attic the slopes particularly characterize the room image, it is not wrong to flatter them with the furnishings. Bright color accents in niches clearly show that the slopes as a spatial element can enhance your living space and not try to hide them or distract from them.
