How can I add a cutout or niche to my wall?
In this article you will learn how to add a niche to a wall. A niche is a cutout that is normally used as a shelf or display area built directly into a wall.For this example we will add a niche to an interior wall in the center of a 4-wall structure.
1. Click Build> Window> Pass-Through and place the pass-through on the wall.
2. Use Open Object to view the Window Specification dialog and establish your height and width on the General panel.
3. Under the Casing panel suppress the Exterior and Interior casing.
4. Under the Lintel & Sill panel disable the Interior and Exterior Sill.
The result will be a pass-through in the middle of the wall, as shown in the image below.
Now we have sealed the opening on both sides.
To add the arch shown in this example, open the pass-through up to specification, select the Arch panel, and choose your desired style.
The result is a niche that can be customized to match your room.
