Custom Villa 46 Sycon Maitri, Whitefield
What Houzz contributors are saying:
Does your staircase landing have a huge window with a view? If yes, you have got a potential space to build a window seat right there. Also, it makes a lot of sense to fit in some seating to transform any bland landing midway up the stairs into something functional.If you are in no mood to take up a carpentry job, you can simply add a couple of chairs or a bench by the landing window, too. The sill could double as a coffee table, as you enjoy the view outside with a companion.
Coming back to the central corridor, the staircase leads to the private rooms above, past a landing midway. Featuring a seating nook and a wallpapered accent wall, this double-height space is flooded with natural light from the two tall windows with Venetian blinds. Throw cushions add colour and pattern to the space.
5. Secure landing spacesIf your home has a stairway, then install balustrades and handrails for additional support. You could also set up a resting spot between the floors as shown in the image, so the elderly can sit down and catch their breath. Cosy nooks like these can also enhance the functional and aesthetic value of under-utilised landing spaces like these.
