Alcove Seating Design Ideas
There are many ways to introduce an alcove to your outdoors. It doesn’t necessarily have to be in a wall. It can be made of bushes and as an independent structure. But a wall alcove has its own advatanges, one of which is that it’s space-saving. In small backyards every inch counts and a wall alcove doesn’t take up any.
It can also look interesting and modern or simply decorative. Arched alcoves look especially attractive and give a structure a touch of ancient style.
Alcoves can be useful if you don’t want to splurge on the whole terrace or patio. But even smaller niches in the walls can really spruce your eterior as they can be filled with potted flowers and figurines.
Also walls aren’t the only structures to hold an alcove. A great way to use a staircase beside its direct purpose is building in a seating space that makes for a great outdoor reading nook. In mild climates this is a perfect location for such a seat as it can double as a swimming pool lounge.
