A cute place to sit a wait, this sofa under the stairs is great way to dress up a dull space and add function at the same time. A neutral color ties in well with the room and is accented by oriental pillows.
Natural light highlights the bright white walls in this modern room. Red chairs surround a thin, circular dining table under a polished black pendant light. The open design joins the dining area with the living room, which features a thick white sofa. Light hardwood floors match the stairs and window frame, making for a cohesive look throughout the space.
This outdoor living space has three separate areas for entertaining and relaxing. An outdoor dining room with a fireplace for extra warmth is nestled under the brick canopy, while a bar area is off to the side-a perfect place for after dinner drinks. Finally, the stairs lead to a sunning station where homeowners can enjoy the sun's warm rays and catch a tan.
As seen on HGTV Design Star, Kellie Clements takes on the weird nook under the stairs in the bonus room. Since there's only one window in the space, she designs a stylish seating and reading area around it to encourage people to get to the natural light. Judge Vern Yip considers this is a phenomenal room, saying, "Just because you have a small space doesn't mean you can't do big design." The square green cushions provide unique seating and a great touch of color.
