Waste of space in my small room

jenam014January 4, 2013
Recently bought a cottage on cape cod...with three small bedrooms. We are renovating these currently. Any suggestions for my smallest room that has the stairs running underneath? I wonder what we could build/put in this space that is good looking and functional over or around this stair hump. Any ideas are greatly appreciated. Room is still a work in progress, no baseboards, just put in walls and fooring.

Welcome Home designs
I would like to see more pics to determine how much space you have.

More pictures of your room will be more appreciated. But as for me, there is no such thing a small room. I live in an apartment and I am able to maximize the space so it looks bigger than it is really. It is just tricks that will do so that you'll live your place with no limits.

You could add shelves as suggested by penny, but you could also make it into a box by leveling the top.

Thanks everyone. Here are some more pictures. The bed is a double/full sized. I was standing in the door beside the stair cover. Best shots I have, now I am away from the home. Thanks for the input really appreciated.

My dog's bed is leaning up against the stair cover.
