i'm looking for creative ideas. haven't been able to find images on google, perhaps this is a unique idea. we are blessed to have a back stair case, leading directly from the garage into the upstairs of our home. until now, we have not utilized it; i used it for storage. but i am interested now in turning this into an entry and exit way for the kids and i -- thinking that we can hang coat hooks on the walls, a spot for daughter's backpack, spaces for shoes, etc. the benefit is that it goes straight to our car -- instead of having to walk all through the entire house just to get out the door in the morning. same can be true upon re-entry into the house after school.
the stairway is nice and deep -- there is potential for shelving even on the wall facing the top of the stair way.
does anybody have experience in utilizing a space like this? does anybody have any suggestions on how to arrange it?
