When’s the last time you really thought about your staircase landing?

Probably the last time you walked on it to finish getting up the stairs, right? Staircase landings usually aren’t used for anything other than a fast way to get from point A to point B in your home, especially if you have longer staircases and/or a multi-level house.

But what if we told you that staircase landings are a great way to add a little extra storage to your home? After all, staircase landings are normally just unused space—and what better use for extra space than extra opportunities for organization?

We’ve got four of our favorite ways to use staircase landings for storage & organization right here:


Bookcases: One of the easiest ways to add some storage and liven up the look of your staircase landing is to turn it into a library! Add some bookcases as space allows and display your favorite books. Now the next time you go on a book-buying spree, you’ll have a better place to keep them when you’re done with it!


Shoe storage: Depending on the size and location of your landing, you may be able to use this area to take some of the burden off your entryway. By placing a shoe bench on your landing, you can streamline the morning rush a little bit and help further declutter your entryway or front room by adding needed storage elsewhere. (If you’re really feeling adventurous, you could try adding some coat racks around the area too!) Don’t have the space for a whole shoe bench? In pinches like this, a decorative chest will work just as well!


Wall shelves: Whether you need to store something that has to go up higher like cat food, or you just want some extra room to show off your favorite photos and knick-knacks, the stairway landing is the perfect place for some wall shelves to keep everything up high and in view.


Window seating: If your staircase landing has the space, you might want to set up some light chairs and end tables to enjoy the view and let some sun in. This table can either be decorative or a place to enjoy a light meal while getting some sunlight and enjoying the view if your landing has room for it!
