Built-In Media Niches

April 18th, 2017 · 2 Comments

It was popular in the 1990s and early 2000s to create massive built-in entertainment centers or media niches. Back in the day when TVs were narrower and also when big TVs were very deep. But nowadays, most of these media niches are functionally obsolete. Today’s TVs are wider and shallow.

This TV actually fits in the niche. But the surrounding niches only encourage home owners to become collectors. Future hoarders?

170418b

Sometimes they are used only to display items.

170418c

They can also be demoted to secondary status. The knotted curtain gets full priority in this room.

170418d

Or completely ignored. They’re also great dust collectors.
