Q: I love my townhouse but hate the metal staircase [see photo below]. It's cream, metal, and just like... why. Any ideas on how to make the best of the staircase and the nook under it? -Sent by Tarsha
Editor: There's nothing rampantly terrible about that staircase, but I'm with you on the "just like... why." Readers, can you think of any ways that this stairway and the nook under it can be improved? Tarsha doesn't mention whether the townhouse is rented or owned, so suggestions for both situations would be appreciated. Thanks!
