Traditional niche styling can be achieved by taking any one of the 3 basic recesses, and adding the appropriate "outer frame" moulding. All Orac niches and niche components are supplied in a white primer finish and can be decorated to suit respective interior styling. Additional visual appeal can be created by installing a 60 watt bulb inside the base plate (although customers are advised to use a suitably qualified electrician for this option). Larger niches come with a choice of a plain recess (N510) or a scalloped fan shaped upper section (N520).
Orac niches offer versatile solutions to discerning home owner and designers. Recent design trends have shifted to a minimalistic appearance and an absence of clutter. The most economical way to create a stylish niche is to select any one of our 3 niche recess components N510, or N520 and simply use these to create a flush finish to the wall. Customers looking for this "Clean Look" may also find our C356 coving enhances a room's appeal.
Installers will need to create a suitable recess to accommodate House Martin niches, and create a neat edge detail by using Orac DecoFix Pro (or Hydro in a bathroom or pool environment - do not fit lighting under the base plate in a wet room).
