If you are interested in getting the most out of your square footage, a great place to look may be the space under your stairs. Right now this space may only look like a blank wall, but if you look closer, you will see that it has endless potential and available space that you can utilize.
Looking for extra storage? Add some shelves or drawers and you will have an instant storage space that is both convenient and appealing. Plus, you can treat the shelving detail as an extension of your home’s décor, and use it as a place to display pictures and other decorative pieces to help complete your room.
For a quicker storage fix that requires no construction, add a small, thin table with a few storage bins underneath. This can be used as a drop place for your keys, bags, umbrellas and whatever else you may need to access on the go.
You can also transform the space under the stairs into a special area just for you. Carve out a cozy nook for those days when you want to curl up with a favorite book or take a little cat nap. A few decorative pillows and cushions are all you really need to make the space your own.
Or, if you’re feeling generous, you can make the nook into a play area for your kids or your pets. Add pillows, blankets, toys and whatever else to make the space personal and special for your favorite little ones.
This space is also the perfect place to set up shop. Turn it into a workspace by adding a small desk and shelves, or make it your craft corner—complete with a sewing table and storage bins for all your supplies.
Honestly, the possibilities are endless. The space under the stairs can be whatever you want it to be. The hardest part is deciding what you want. If you need help, feel free to consult with our talented Design Manager, Becky Crosby.
