this is a perfect design for utilizing space and enjoying your surroundings at the same time. Please share a few dimensions - for the stair design if you could. Ceiling height, ceiling opening dimensions, rise and run would be ideal. Thank you so very much

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Uncover unexpected details: To open up a dark and cramped kitchen, Gambrel removed a closet and installed windows and built-in bench seating. The twist of the staircase is now a feature of the room that adds to the kitchen’s relaxed ambience.
Amy Renea added this to Creating Nests in Open-Plan Spaces
If there's an odd space at the bottom of your staircase, outfit it with a deep window seat and load it up with pillows and blankets for fall. Keep the look eclectic with a modern table and flooring.
Under the StairsDesigner Steven Gambrel turned an unused closet into this serene, understairs retreat. The addition of a window and the comfy, upholstered built-in make it the perfect place for tea with a friend after a long work week.
Karen Egly-Thompson added this to So Many Reasons to Love Cement Tiles
This seating area, designed by Steven Gambrel, has a cement tile with a cube motif. While introducing pattern to the floor, the small design isn’t overwhelming.
