This weekend we visited the new (but very old) home of friends of ours who previously lived in Brooklyn. They took the leap and bought a beautiful home from the 1850s and are now in the process of planning their full list of “to-dos” at home, from big to small.
One of my favorite features of their home is a grand staircase right past the front door that has some awkward storage space underneath. Most people would probably stick a coat rack there and call it a day (and there’s certainly nothing wrong with that), but this little space felt rife with potential for something really special. I immediately started sketching custom-built cabinetry and hidden storage in my head, so I ran home and started this roundup for them to get the ideas flowing. They certainly aren’t the only ones who could benefit from a little creative under-stair storage (it’s a great place to hide cat litter boxes!), so I threw in one of my favorite hidden cat spots, too! xo, grace
