Maybe think twice before stuffing your fireplace alcoves with cabinets and shelves? Low-level cupboards are fine but, unless your room is huge, tall cabinetry can make the space look congested, the stuff seems to come at you. I removed a full-height built-in bookcase to create this cosy corner.

It’s incredible how many books you can fit into previously unused space. This is my hubby’s first attempt at carpentry:)

I don't unfortunately, have a chimney breast space that needs filling or straddling but could go for any of the featured except the 'glam with mirror & marble' as simply not my taste... Anna & Jill, I like what you've done...
