Also, the options for covering the back wall are narrowed; it should be thin so as not to narrow the shallow niche. Therefore, in this case, paint or wallpaper is used. PHOTO TO (niche before processing :) In this niche, structuredWallpaper, there was only a question how else can it be refined. And the frame is a wonderful way out. Since the door frame and plinth are made in the same style and painted white, the decision to make the same frame for the niche came of itself. AFTER (Niche after processing): Necessary materials:
