I love the idea of a "ranch" or one floor house, but if we had a staircase, i am very fond of this idea :) also, no carpet on stairs, as a reminder for self, since i tend to fall down them all the time and they are a major pain in the rear to vacuum.
Under cabinet storage. Would be great for cookie sheets and cooling racks. Great use of space!
