Your suggestions, as the readers, are always welcome though this post provides you a WIDE variety of ideas to save the space under the stairs.
There are people who find it very hard to get rid of things; those same people feel that storage space is a never ending issue. Let’s have a look at the ideas to transform the space under the stairs into a new storage area.
Home office under stairs
Have you ever thought that you can have a working area under the stairs? If you have, you are among a few people. The stairs are surely wide enough and straight forward so that you can put some small shelves and a table there. I am sure you will not find any trouble at all fitting a laptop or a PC into the space. In arranging the office under the stairs, wee have two types of it.
Both types are positioning it along the steps, facing the wall, and positioning it perpendicular. The focus of the two types are maximizing the available space under the stairs as good as it could be.
Mounting a door is a brilliant idea to let you fully focus on your work with no distraction from anyone. You cab save some space through the use of sliding doors though they are not friendly in the matter of price. While swing doors could possibly both fit and unfit and also look appealing.
Once you have acknowledged all the possible options, there is a good news for you; you can still arrange an original home office under the stairs regardless to the doors existence and perpendicular or not.
Ways to use the space under the stairs in the hallway
With many streets coming from various directions, naturally, the hallway is similar to a very busy intersection. Which means that you now have a space to store something that can be at hand at once. The type of situation you are facing and the décor or architecture that space under the stairs from the hallway could determine the expansion of your décor or possible storage area. Or you can store your shoes and clothes in the any season; that is a very nice transformation from your space under the stairs. Just let it open or closed with big doors.
Everyone in the family may have their own place provided by the very easily divided inside compartment. The area are not merely for space purpose, you can also use it for your interior setting extension. It could be a nice spot for you to place a couch or a big comfortable arm chair or you might find it ideal to support your favorite decoration. Try to put aside the stylish aspect and think about the extra space for your appliances or even sport item like a bike; you can easily place it there and have no trouble to access it.
Ways to use the space under the stairs in living room.
You need to keep in mind that your living room different from a hallway, therefore it needs more delicate treatments. If you don’t want to have a ruined overall look or even ruined everything, avoid any kind of rough or major modification to them or the space around them. Make sure that you don’t make something which is not matching with the environment.
On one hand, it is important to make the space under your stairs integrated to the entire décor, and on the other hand, the main function of it is still an extra space. Making the space under the stairs as a bookshelf may or may not sound new to you. It becomes a very good idea to maximize the space, and it is worth to try after all.
This idea seems perfect since the shape of the shelves are very adjustable, and it also looks great for any of your favorite book. You can still have the decorations undisturbed with this idea, just like the embellishing electronic equipments in the living room both in color and texture.
Kitchen under the stairs.
This method can be called as the last resort as it emerges when you have no other option to optimize the very limited space. Having a kitchen or perhaps just a part of it under the stairs is very weakly recommended since I prefer to cook a lot and it is not a good thing to have any shoe lasses, dust or even dirt around my food.
If you have a very limited space, a sink or a stove are ideal appliances to choose. You can put small shelves above for your plates, coffee cups and spices. I have seen a very interesting “spice wall”; a place with a lot tiny compartments from solid wood looks like a small mail box in a very traditional house with stone walls. There were little jars full of spices from around the world in the tiny compartments. I believe that the owner is a pro.
Rack and shelves under the stairs.
Shelves and racks arrangement are the easiest way to optimize the space under the stairs, and that is a fact. No need fro heavy furnishing, you can place many things there. Nowadays, the new and modern interiors are no longer home to the usual square shelves. They prefer the ones with different sizes and a bit asymmetrical. You can store almost anything on shelves, but keep in mind that the stairs location is important since different spaces are for different items. For instance, your bike or your son’s basketball belongs to the space under the stairs on the hallway while small things such as books, photos, decorations, vases and others are suitable the shelves in the living room. The main idea of the space under the stairs is representing an extra storage space. Be sure to build some shelves and trust me, you will find it useful in anyway.
Cabinets with doors under stairs.
In order to fulfill our demand for storage, the recent cabinets are now available in many shapes, colors and materials. Up till now, there is still one thing left to be attempted. Since we already talk about the unused space under the stairs from the beginning, let’s go on with building cabinets with doors, locks and handles. Think about the already available closed sides, you only need to add some doors and shelves.
You can choose modular method for these door cabinets. The cabinets can be individually used and be mounted underneath the stairs, while mounting the doors could also be an option where you can use the newly-created space for storing things. I found out that my parent’s house has that sort of thing. They use the space to store shoes and close it with a sliding door and build-in shelves. The space was also my sister’s and my favorite hiding place. Since it is in the hallway, near the entrance, and quite large, it becomes very practical. Aside from being the storage space for shoes, you can also put your golf clubs, soccer balls or anything else you need to store with individual compartments to make them safe and accessible.
Drawers built under stairs.
Mounting multiple drawers under the stairs seems like a good idea if you are a very organized person with very limited space to store a lot of things. Both small and large drawers could fill that space. This sort of thing was spotted in a tailoring workshop. They managed to cover the limited space problem by using it for fabrics and threads storage.
With distinct drawer, they can organize everything in a vertical way, there is each drawer for each fabric or thread. This means a lot for meeting the need of extra space. Shelves are better than drawers since you can organize more than just private things. However, the entire ensemble of drawers can give a great look to the exterior and present sophisticated and mysterious aspect to the room.
An slide-open big vertical drawers with smaller ones in it are ideal for you who desire a more complex organizer. This is just perfect for a family with two kids. Each kid has his/her own drawer and they can store shirts, pants, socks and other things in the smaller drawers.
