Help me figure out what to do with all this space! What should I do with my den?

I recently moved into a new one bedroom + den apartment and have much more space than I need.
I have a den which is not being used at all. In my last apartment I had a similar den which I setup as a home office but never used. I just ended up bringing my laptop into the living room every day. My living room is huge so I setup a little home office in the corner - I prefer to work in the living room rather than in the 'bowels' of my apartment.
The den is essentially an alcove right off the front door of the apartment - no windows, 3 walls, not connected in any way to the main living area other than by the entry hallway. Dimensions are 4'3" x 8'4" x 4'3".
Things to keep in mind: I'm not exactly artsy - so "art studio" would be a waste for me. I'd like to use the space as more than just storage - but if I end up using it as storage what is a creative way to turn it into a storage space without just piling boxes in there (I'd like to keep it neat since it is the first thing you see when walking in).
AskMeFi, what should I do with this alcove?
