Storage Under Stairs:
Step It Up
The area under the stairs often goes overlooked; but by adding storage under stairs, you’re actually increasing the useable space of your home without having to add an inch to its size. By considering under stair designs like shelving, cabinetry, or closets, you’ll be able to store away everything from seasonal clothing to sports equipment and even books, so get the advice of an expert like a home remodeling contractor or a custom home builder on ways to accomplish your goals. There are under stairs ideas that will convert dead space into one that actually benefits your life, so think about what your home might be missing and take another look at all the possibilities that might be right under you every time you take the stairs.
Be a Stair Master
Creating storage under stairs isn’t the only way to make those steps work for you. In fact, you might want to consider converting that space into a home office by designing a built-in desk and some shelving to keep your work life organized. Are you a wine enthusiast or a cocktail connoisseur? Install wine racks, bottle storage, and shelf space for barware to keep you sipping, mixing, and shaking in style. Create a cozy reading nook with a built-in bench topped with cushions nestled in with shelves. Give Spot his very own spot of luxury complete with bedding, toy storage, and even access to regular sips and nibbles of kibble. Got kids underfoot? Give them the perfect place to play even on rainy days by building them the playhouse of their dreams. Just install a dainty door and tiny windows, comfy flooring and seating, and let their imaginations run wild.
It’s amazing what you can do with a set of stairs, if you plan things well. Simply by rethinking that empty space under the staircase, you’ll be making your house far more functional you might have imagined possible without having to take on a major home renovation project.
