1. Built-in vanity. To those who want a storage space for toiletries and accessories, then you might want to convert this space into a vanity, or even a built in closet. As a vanity, all you have to do is install cupboard structures inside the said area and cover it with a wooden door. You can then decorate the door with a fancy knob and as well place a mirror so it can be the designated place in the house for grooming.

2. As a pantry of sorts. Since this space is more ideal for storage, why not turn it into a pantry? You need not store food per se, but spices or herbs, or even as a room for tools.
