Nooks & Alcoves

Creative built ins, nooks and alcoves can add beauty, usefulness and personality to many different rooms in the home. Shelves along a wall instantly provide storage and decoration. Alcoves, or small areas carved from a larger room, increase the number of functions that room can accommodate, without adding much square footage.

The hallway at the top of the stairs or the angled area under a low roof can become bookshelf space. A cantelivered bay in a dining room offers a cozy window seat while providing storage space and a focal point for the room. Shelves, hooks and a built-in bench contribute to a user-friendly mudroom.
