Resurrecting the dead zones

Resurrecting the dead zones

 

  • Before claiming the hollow space between studs of interior walls, make sure you know where wiring and plumbing runs. A little bit of preplanning will prevent costly fixes.
  • For a dramatic look, create several small recessed spaces on a single wall to hold accessories and art.
  • The space beneath the stairs — where the young Harry Potter was forced to sleep — is quite generous for storage. Around the turn of the century, many homes had small closets under stairways. The space can also be left open but framed and finished to showcase a small credenza, or outfitted with shelves that follow the stair-step pattern. 
  • Build window seats with tops that lift for storage, or leave an opening on the floor for a small pet nook. Make the seat wide and long enough, with a firm cushion, to serve as a guest bed.
  • Instead of using a spacer to make kitchen cabinetry fit, consider a skinny but deep drawer.

Really love the idea of the window seat/sleepover bunk/storage. Very cool combo!

It's so clever.

I also like the Murphy bed with the built-in desk that folds down when the bed folds up. Just think of the sit-com possibilities.
