And the study nook?Secondary spaces often get overlooked, but we sought to investigate them thoroughly here to see what value they could bring to the occupants. We converted the under-stair space between the ground and first floors, along the common circulation space, into a retreat or study nook. The western red cedar-lined nook with concealed LED lighting became a place to sit, relax or escape (for kids and adults alike).

Obviously if the estimate proves to be wrong it is highly unlikely that the architect-builder will be awarded the construction of their project, or any further design work.

Cons of LED Strip LightingIf an LED needs replacing, it may require the whole set to be replaced rather than only one light bulb.If one or two lights burn out before the others, the effect can be patchy. In addition, as the lights degrade over time, their brightness may become undependable and inconsistent.

Create a playroom for the kidsThink ‘room under the stairs for the children’ and the wrong connotations come up (Harry Potter being one of the first to come to mind). But as this house in Sydney shows, you can quite happily make a place for sitting and playing that feels like a retreat from the rest of the world – the beauty of this space, of course, is that you could quite happily sit here with a book and a cup of coffee and hide from the children instead…

Many people find themselves stumped with what to do with the space under the stairs. This clever design by CplusC Architectural Workshop in Sydney shows how to have fun with an otherwise wasted space.

Instead of spending a lot of money trying to make the problem area disappear altogether, or ignoring the space and trying to ‘live with it’, consider how you can repurpose it and highlight its uniqueness – it may well become your favourite part of the design and a talking point for all those who see it.More nifty in-between nooks

Reminds me of alcove under basement stairs. Let’s finish it under there so it’s cosy for kids :)
