Below are a few examples of staircases which have gone the extra mile.  Prepare to be wowed!

● The Simple Storage Staircase Corner

Although not as cool as the first photo above, this simple storage corner looks neat and very much hidden.  If you aren’t the type of person who wants to see lots of items on your walls, then this staircase storage is for you.
