Coat closet above stairs

6 years ago

Do any of you have coat closets next to the door located above a staircase? This would allow me to have a *raised* bottom (for stair head room) in the closet, and also have a convenient place for coats. My staircase is to the left of the door, and the wall facing the living area is just a half-high wall. I am concerned a 2' deep x 44" wide closet going up to the ceiling next to the half wall may look weird. Any input?

I also plan on putting in a bench with under storage to fill in the wasted space after the coat closet. That space has no other benefit since the couch essentially creates the ending point of the living room and the start of the entryway.
