If your home is like many, that space is on the clean-out and purge to-do list. Unless of course, you’ve been crafty and and are already using this charming space under your stairs.  Live in an abode without stairs?  Join us anyway for these inovative ideas.  

Home Office

Country Living

For many, our working at home needs are changing. Staircases are often in pretty nice foyers and can make for a welcoming home office. Open the walls and create a working corner with all these functions. Don’t need an office per se? What a great place for Mom central!

Covered Storage

The Owner Builder Network

Drawers offer such a great way to compartmentalize and organize all kinds of things. Paperwork, photos, hobby materials, candles, seasonal hats, gloves, mittens, games, and toys. Toys? Oh yes, what a great way to pick up, store, and start fresh every day!

Hidden Play/Pet Area


Take it one step further and make the kiddos a hideaway! A reading nook or spaceship? Might even become a favorite naptime spot!

Speaking of Favorite Spots!

Studio Munroe

Little nooks are attractive to all of us…no matter our age. Look at this perfect spot! Can’t decide if we like the wallpaper or hanging fixture better but can definitely see sneaking in a few minutes each day right here!
