Two pairs of mirrored arched french doors. These were previously used for closets which we undid. Then we placed them in the narrow corridor to make it look wider, and provide access to storage under the stairs. Fabric fills the top. See how the stairway wall floats.

Did you have to do any restoration of the grill work or is that original?

Hi Heidi,
We were very lucky. Before my client purchased the house it belong to a couple of Architectural salvage collectors. These sets of French Doors were part of the house. The were used for two full closet which we removed. So I relocated them to the stairway wall. There was no storage before under the steps, which we provided for. For me it was the illusion of depth added to the wall and narrow hallway that was more important, and they are beautiful.
Let me know if you have other questions.

Not if properly installed. Also to consider is location such as earthquake zone or not. Anti-crack membranes should be used most of the time. Talk to a tile installer specialist.

Mirror, mirror, on the wall. Mirrors make any room appear larger, so this age-old trick is sure fire in narrow spaces.

I don't like this style at all, but the idea here of using the side of the stairs for full length cabinets like this for storage is tremendous. depending on location, it could be part of the kitchen.
