Do you have an alcove in your home? Although they're often oddly shaped, alcoves offer lots of possibilities for built-in storage. British designers Couture Furniture have included a few alcove projects in their portfolio, and we think they offer some good approaches to making the most of a recessed nook...

Most of these projects combine open vertical shelving with closed cabinets at base level. This weights the alcove on the bottom and preserves a more lightweight look higher up. Comparing the projects, you can also see the different looks you get when you choose a built-in that's flush with the alcove, one that protrudes a little, or a freestanding piece of furniture that's not hooked into the wall.
