How Can I Maximize Storage in Recessed Corner?

Good Questions

Q: My husband and I are about to start renovating our bedroom and can't decide how to make the most of the recessed corner measuring 1m (3'3") deep and 1.6m (5'3") wide. There's nowhere else to put wardrobes, so we need to add as much storage in the corner as possible, and would like to take advantage of the 2.5m (8'2") high ceiling.

We have considered building in a closet or an L-shaped run of 3 IKEA Pax wardrobes with extra units on top, but I wonder if there's something more clever we could do. Our budget isn't huge — the Ikea wardrobe solution is the upper limit — but we're keen DIYers and my husband has built some basic furniture for other rooms.

Any suggestions?
