Reading nookClosely related to the library is the reading nook – this one’s in the front hall, so it could also act as a handy place to stop and put on your shoes before going out, though my fear is that this would get used to pile up coats. I’m intrigued by the very low door at ground level too. Is that where the vacuum cleaner goes?
The under-stairs as a functional storage spaceVertical storage is not just your walls but any space that can be used vertically and in stacks. The space under the staircase is a fine example of this. We love how you can use it not just as a storage space but a functional storage space. Take a look at how it’s turned into a reading nook here.
