What Houzz contributors are saying:

Danyelle Mathews added this to Help Your Stair Landing Take Off
Consider how it will function. Books are lined up on these shelves, but the mother in me sees an opportunity for storage and organization. This little nook looks to be about a quarter of the way up the stairs. If this were my home, I would purchase baskets that fit snugly on the shelves and assign one to each child. Throughout the day as out-of-place items are collected, I would put them in the appropriate child's basket. At the end of the day they would be in charge of removing the items from their basket and putting them away.
