(pronounced neesh OR nitch)

Toh-may-toh, toh-mah-toh. Say this word the first way and you sound pretentious; say it the other, and you sound like a hick. You can’t win. Not to say that it isn’t a good word, though! It’s so appropriate when you need to speak of a wall recess in which a statue or other type of feature / object can be placed and admired. A niche can be small or large, extremely shallow or fairly deep, inside or outside, directly in a wall or forming part of a ceiling. See why you need to know this word”” Oh, and maybe you can carve out your niche by creating a niche market in the design industry. (Just wanted to show you two other ways you can drop this bomb.)
