A clever idea — stairway landing storage — maximizes underutilized attic space.
In two- or three-story homes there often are awkward spaces under the eaves or on a landing. In this upstairs hallway, the wall on the left would normally have been covered in sheet rock, painted and left bare. The passage is too narrow for artwork since there’s no way to step back. So a clever architect took dead space and created a bank of shallow storage closets to provide stairway landing storage. Perfect for linens, supplies, toys or other seldom used items the doors are short and while access might be a trifle awkward, it’s great to have the option. Given the small size of the pendant light hanging over the stairwell it would be same to assume that these closets have interior illumination — which would help see what’s inside. Either way, this is a noteworthy storage solution, especially for old house owners.
