Draws in Stairs

Extra storage in your steps.

Very simple idea for storage that we put draws in each of the steps for storage. The draws have holes in to open rather than knobs that would get in the way.

I have included a funny drawing of my concept.

       Ow wow someone has already done it. They look good. It's a shame you have to close each draw to get to the other one.

       Perhaps instead of a sliding drawer, you could just attach a hinge in the corner and lift the stepping surface up?   

       This idea actually sounds like quite a fire hazard.

       OK. new idea. Half of the step is a draw. That way you can still go up and down the stairs.

       This would work well in bungalows.

       [World] - You'll see that solution in most yachts where storage space is at a premium and the stairs are called the companionway.

       I'm all for more storage space.
