TV niche: now you see it, now you don’t!

Out, out, damned niche!

I was part of a discussion recently involving folks who are in the process of buying a home.  They talked about what features of a home would be “deal breakers.”

Outdated TV niches were at the top of the list.  Almost everyone agreed that they would very likely pass on a house that contained one or more TV niches.

I was very surprised, as there is such a simple way to transform a TV niche into a solid wall.  Luckily, one of my friends, Cherylann Bourne-Hayes, was in the process of settling into her newly purchased home, which was purchased with a TV niche in the family room.  She generously offered to take photos of how she attacked the niche dilemma.

As the photos depict, this is a fairly straightforward transformation.  If you lack the carpentry skills to tackle the project, bid the job out!
