Good Questions: Making the Under-Stairs into a Closet

Hi there AT!

When a realtor first showed us the townhome we now live in, we thought the funky space under the stairs was really cool. Well, a year later with us relatively settled (although still picking out paint colors so please forgive the hideously bland walls in the photos), we aren't finding that space so cool any more.

"Our home has very limited closet space with a pantry on the first floor (pantry=no depth to it at all) and two closets on the second floor (each about 4.5ft wide, 2.5 ft deep). We have nowhere to store our vacuum and other miscellaneous items except under the stairs. But this spot happens to be central in the main living area (first floor is open floor plan). We want to create some sort of door/curtain/divider to cover the area so we and our guests don�t have to stare at a vacuum while conversing or watching movies.

Any ideas on how to cover up this angled space? Whatever we use has to also be easy to move/roll/slide so when the urge to clean strikes, we can get to the vacuum.

Thanks!
Nikki
