TOM: Looking for more storage space to hide the clutter in your home? Nooks, crannies, and other untapped turf are probably hiding in plain sight. Hi, I’m Tom Kraeutler.

TOM: Space in and around staircases is the first place to look for untapped storage possibilities. From stairs that double as drawers to built-in cabinets or shelves accessible from underneath, a little reconfiguring can turn that unused staircase space into an attractive option for short- or long-term storage.
LESLIE: Next, get creative with alcoves and corners. The addition of a few simple storage solutions can convert even the smallest landings into a sleek workstation, which is especially valuable if you can’t spare a bedroom for your home office.
TOM: And you probably don’t have to look too far to find some unused wall space. By installing shallow built-in drawers or shelving units you not only gain space but you also add character. I’m Tom Kraeutler.
