Design help for a funky corner

Christy ClarkNovember 10, 2013
This is my sister's new house. We are having trouble deciding what to do with this tv area. Custom shelves maybe? The tv can't go on the mantle because the mantle faces the kitchen, so there is no furniture placement that would be comfortable to watch tv.

From the attached photo, custom shelving/storage which maximizes the available space and allows you to place the tv at an ergonomic height would be best.

I saw something interesting, perhaps on here somewhere, and niches like that were showed either painted a nice pop of color, or one had horizontal glass tiles along the back wall almost like a backsplash would be in a kitchen.

Anyway they were interesting ideas and both could have shelving(I would do glass since there is the pot light) if that is something you would like to do. Make sure the bulb is not to its full wattage as sometimes I think they can be a bit bright for accenting.

Also, look on houzz photos for "niche decorating" and that could give you ideas as well.

Also try "niche ideas"
I tried search discussions for "niche solutions" and it shown me a pic of a niche using glass shelves...very nice

Agree w Kitchen. If customizing is a dirty word, look for a taller chest, hang the TV to a comfortable viewing height, and span the difference w a floating box shelf to hold extras.
Here is the link for art niche photos:

Maybe a wall mount tv stand could be an option. Very affordable. Walmart carries this one.
