  • Storage space is always welcomed in my household regardless of how plenty I might already have currently. I think the amount of items in the house seems endless especially if there are more than just a couple of family members living under one roof. Therefore, we need to always explore new areas to fully maximize space and utilize all living spaces available. If these areas can be concealed, that is even better such as these great ideas here.

It’s good to see some interior designers coming up with something that looks different these days and giving new homeowners some hope of a unique way of using staircases for storage!
