It's an under the steps closet.It very deep and quaint for a little get away.Three small children should fit. I wish I had thought of this idea with my exact closet.

Very good for keeping the kids occupied and out of your way while you are working.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

The Shabby Nest added this to Creative Play Spaces for Kids
Kids love to play in small, secret spaces! A nook under the stairs is a perfect place for a secret playspace...and extra toy storage as well! I'd love to hear your ideas for creating fun play spaces for your kids!
Erin Lang Norris added this to Get Your House Guests Talking
If you don't need another bathroom, why not turn the empty area under the stairs into a fun area for kids? The coolest part is that you can get away with painting it bubblegum pink and not wonder if it will work with the rest of the house. The kids will love visiting and will remember your house forever. I know this because my aunt had one, and it was so much fun. Plus, we'd keep ourselves entertained for hours on end and the grownups never bothered us.
Shawn Gauthier added this to Kid Spaces: Making Room for the Brood
Under-stair nooks. Take advantage of nooks and crannies. Kids love them because they’re just their size, and you’ll love it because it gives them somewhere to play and keeps all their stuff out of sight. A nook under the stairs is always a winner.
Becky Harris added this to For the Kids: Secret Forts Indoors
A simple curtain and some bright paint under these stairs is more than enough to entice a tot into the cozy space. Kids love to have a little hideaway of their own.
Becky Harris added this to Need More Space? Look Under the Stairs
Another secret fort hidden by a curtain is bright pink inside.
Danyelle Mathews added this to How to Carve Out a Nook for Play
This play nook is similar to the one we now have in our home. Using a curtain in the doorway will help you keep an eye on the kids as they play.

Hvem bor bag gardinet? Der er ingen der siger, at et barn behøver et fuldt ud møbleret børneværelse for at føle sig hjemme. Ofte er et område, der er reserveret til barnet nok til at give fornemmelsen af lidt privatliv. Har du ikke et ekstra rum til rådighed med en dør, der kan lukkes, så brug et tungt gardin som afskærmning. Det kan være rundt om en køjeseng, for hulrummet under en trappe eller blot sat op for et hjørne af stuen – fornemmelsen af have et sted, der er helt ens eget, som man kan trække sig tilbage til skal nok opstå, så længe man kan lukke verden ude.
