Cosy Lounge with Built-In Fireplace, Shelving & Coving

Look for ways to make space work for you. At CharlesJames we have all sorts of smart alcove ideas that you’ll enjoy just like this project. From much-needed storage to fascinating aesthetic elements and even useful family rooms.

Low-level shelving in alcoves on each side of a chimney breast creates a comfortable, contemporary atmosphere. One single long-line shelf may serve as a TV seat or a showcase space for artwork, and it looks great next to a modern fireplace. Browse our interior design projects for inspiration.
