Today’s reader request comes from Anna of from bali with love: “I have a question maybe you and your readers can help me with. I plan to renovate a one story house to a two story house. The front door/main floor opens into the living area (rectangular shape). I’m thinking the living space is the best place to add the staircase to go to the second level but I’m having a hard time deciding what type of stairs to use and a good location for them? By the front window/door? Along the long wall on right side of room? etc? Ideas, pictures, advice and suggestions would be greatly appreciated!” My initial thought is to place the stairs by the front window/door. That way all that stuff that will take up space will be in one location and the rest of the space will be free. I went digging through my photo stash and found all sorts of ideas that may help – although I didn’t find too many photos that clearly showed stairs situated in a living room. But I think these will help….and thank gawd stairs aren’t quite as boring as they used to be!
