Organized basement - the woman that lived in our house before us had the basement organized exactly like this and I was in awe!
double-duty storage ottoman / coffee table on wheels - adds great texture to the space too.
I realized I have a free wall that follows the steps down to the basement that we COULD put up a faux stone facade on. It would add texture to the main floor's living room space and interest on the way down the stairs to the basement.
