Creative Ideas On How To Make The Most Of Your Alcove Space

Alcoves often create fantastic storage solutions in small pockets of space. And although you may find these areas frustrating at first – you’ll soon discover that they are a blessing in disguise.

To bring light and inspire you to love these small spaces as much as we do, we’ve put together some ideas on how you can make the most of this small space

Home office

Home offices with alcove space not only look great, but they particularly work well at utilising this small space. They’ll most likely be used for shelving to house all your files/stationary, or perhaps a freestanding desk like the one below.


Kids’ corner

Children’s rooms can be one of the smallest in the house, therefore it’s important to make the most of every inch of space. Install storage for books, toys and games, or use the space to fit a child’s desk or it could even be used as a wooden toy box that doubles as a seat.

Multimedia system

Alcoves are also a great place to tuck away the television and other media. Integrate televisions, music systems and other media into your interior in a stylish way with modern cube units or fitted cabinets, combining TV display with shelving or drawers for storage.

A Shelfstore bookcase

Made to measure bookcases are the perfect fit for these small alcove spaces. And no matter how narrow or large your space is, you’ll be able to create a storage solution to fit that space perfectly using the Shelfstore online design wizard. Quick tip – if you’re lucky enough to have alcoves either side of a fireplace, then consider having a freestanding bookcase in the space either side. It’ll certainly add character to your living room.
