While we're on the topic of stairs, we should explore the often neglected use of the space underneath or alongside a staircase. Most people yearn extra space in their homes - it could be right under your feet! Transforming your staircase into a more useful space is simple. Think about what you need most - it could be an office or reading nook, storage area for things like the vacuum or perhaps a bookshelf. Some clever designs even have storage spaces within the actual step! My only tip - keep it simple and uncluttered. The last thing you want to do is detract attention from a gorgeous and expensive staircase.
