Technically this is a blog related to urban planning but at heart, I’ve always been a designer and absolutely love innovative and creative solutions to everyday problems. Unclutterer mentions that this idea was first implemented on yachts where space is at a premium.
When I first saw the ‘storage under the staircase’, my first thought was – how cool is that! This solves the problem of trying to find a place for your shoes near the place where you actually wear them. Isn’t it tedious to haul in your shoes from some inside closet to near the door where you wear them before heading out? I wonder why no one thought of this before with all that space under the stair and the rise of the staircase doubling up as a drawer.
