When we moved to our current house, we changed the layout of the ground floor in order to get a more logical kitchen and dining space. For this a wall was removed and a new wall was built up again in a slightly different location. Furthermore, the staircase’s straight bottom half was modified to have a 90 degrees turn instead. As a result we ended up with a small niche between the new wall and the staircase.
We decided to create a set of cabinets in this niche which could be put to use as extra storage place and in which we could place lighting, or show-case items. I recently finished the project and wrote a page on its construction.
