Storage Staircase: An Ideal Design for Smaller Homes

16 April 2019

Small homes are increasingly becoming popular nowadays. They take up less space, have lower building costs, and are more affordable to maintain! On top of these obvious benefits, smaller homes are easier to clean.

The question is, how do you design a small house to maximise space? With its extremely limited space, homeowners have a difficult time wrapping their heads around the idea. The problem seems even bigger for two-story homes. You’d have to fit a staircase, some handrails, and maybe even a balustrade in such a small space, right?

Typical staircases take up a considerable amount of room, and for smaller homes it could take up much storage space. Thankfully, there is an innovative way to utilise the space needed for a staircase that can be used to create needed storage space for smaller homes.
