The staircase can serve you as a kind of hallway substitute. There you can equip a place to store shoes, clothes, an umbrella and various household items.
It is also a great idea to arrange a small photo gallery on the cabinet shelves. You may not even have to order special furniture to order; a rack in the form of a ladder may fit the parameters of your stairs. In the latter case, you will just need to put it upside down.
The ladder is also great for storing books. You can make it all the way to the ceiling with books! The cabinet acts as a railing, protecting those who go up and down from falling. In this case, it is better to give preference to a rack with a back wall that prevents books from falling to the ground floor.
A ladder can be used wisely and with less bulky furniture than a closet. So, specially stylized boxes and baskets are produced, repeating the outlines of the steps. They fit perfectly into the design and are suitable for storing tools, books, knitting items, wool, cleaning products and various small items.
Railings provide many opportunities for creating an original interior design, in between you can place vases with plants or artificial flowers. You can use a purely utilitarian fixture to transform the space of your home.

If the kitchen is located on the second floor right next to the stairs, then kitchen cabinets can be used instead of the railing of the last flight. This will save a lot of space, and lockers can also be covered with a countertop. This will not only increase the working space of the kitchen, but also allow you to maintain the unity of the composition.
