WALL NICHE SPECIFICATIONS

Does your homeowner want to highlight a statue or sculpture, or maybe add some flair to a hallway or a corner of a room? How about adding a radius niche? With a niche, you can break-up a long, monotonous wall or accent the end of the hallway. Plus, it’s no secret that every house has some dead space. So, how about you utilize that space with a wall niche? We’ll build it to your specs and make it a quick, easy, and affordable kit.

HOW TO MEASURE A NICHE KIT

Measuring your niche consists of providing measurements for the height, width, and depth along with choosing a style. For clarification regarding the above measurements, please use the above pricing calculator and click on the “?” tool tips next to each measurement for more information.

CHOOSING YOUR NICHE STYLE

Choosing a niche style is mostly personal taste along with the overall design/theme of the home. We currently have 3 styles available: soft, half-circle, and dome top. The soft style gives you the ability to control the depth in instances where you either prefer or need a shallower recess. The half-circle style has depth that is half the width, providing a cylindrical shape. The dome top style is a half-circle niche with a half-dome on top.

HOW TO INSTALL NICHES

Your niche kit will come with instructions tailored to your style and specifications. You’ll begin by fastening the top and bottom niche struts and then spacing the remainder of your niche struts equidistantly. The spacing of the niche struts will not exceed 16” O.C. If you choose the dome top style, instructions to complete the half dome will be provided.

FAQ

How long does it take to get my wall niche?

Wall niche kits normally take 3 to 5 business days to manufacture. Then add a few days for shipping. Figure about a week to a week and a half from date of order.

How do you ship my wall niche?

Depending upon the size of your wall niche and/or the size of your total order, it will either ship in boxes via UPS Ground or in a crate via UPS Freight. Once your order has finished processing (usually 1 business day after order), you'll be notified when and how it will ship. If you’d like to know before you order, call us and we’ll let you know.

How do you drywall a wall niche?

Drywalling a wall niche is comprised of measuring the curvature, cutting the drywall to the curvature, forming and fastening in place. While we currently don't have a wall niche drywall video, you can visit our YouTube page and watch some of our other drywall videos. While the application is different, the concepts are the same. 

QUICK TIPS

  • Wetting the back of the drywall will make the drywall easier to bend.
  • For a tighter radius, consider using a double layer of either ¼” or ¼” flex drywall.

How do you finish wall niches?

Drywall, plaster, wood veneer, brick veneer, trim, tile… the list is seemingly endless. Whether you want your wall niche to have a simple or an ornate finish, the choice is yours. You can also watch our "7 Creative Ideas to Finish Your Ceilings & Archways" YouTube video.

There has never been a design by any of our architects that Archways & Ceilings has not been able to manufacture. Once you have used Archways & Ceilings, you will never want to do the arches and ceilings any other way.

We had a project with a large fireplace that sat against a tall wall. Something was missing from the design so I had the guys at Archways & Ceilings build me a large curved fireplace canopy to create a cool custom feature for this area.  The kit was made to my spec’s and was easy to assemble.  The combination of the straight lines of the fireplace and the bell curve shaped lines of the canopy truly makes this space one of a kind.

Troy Dinger, Project Manager

As a framing contractor, anything with a radius, prior to Archways & Ceilings, meant I or one of my skilled hands would have to build it.  What was time consuming and costly is now easy and affordable.  Their balcony rims transformed what would’ve been a laborsome task into a quick and easy job.
