under the stairs reading nook

Previously, our Carriker Cottage Airbnb had an under the stairs closet that didn’t get much use since this home is used as a short term rental.

Also, the closet door had awkward placement with another door into the living room area off the bedroom hallway. The doors hit each other and made it feel bulky and weird.

After seeing this closet go unused for many months, I knew it was time to turn the space into something useful for our guests. On a visit to a Dollywood resort a few years ago, I was impressed with a cute little reading nook tucked under the stairs under the main lobby area. It was the perfect spot to hide away and curl up on a cold day. 

Our guys made it happen and we turned the weird unused closet into our very own reading nook!

One of my favorite things about creating spaces for our guests is taking places that are overlooked and awkward – and making them beautiful and wanted. We’d love to have you over any time to curl up in our reading nook!
