One of the harder, more awkward spaces to design and use is the area under a staircase. Whether you live in a traditional house or a modern duplex apartment, there are plenty of innovative ways that you can utilize the leftover space underneath a staircase for storage. Consider some of these tips for inspiration on how to make the most of your space with under the stairs storage options.
To de-clutter your home, why not build storage cabinets underneath the stairs to make use of that extra space.
Better yet, you could turn the actual steps into storage such as in these individual drawer steps.
For the bookworm types, under the stair storage could be the perfect place to fit your collection.
Or for a liquor enthusiast, you could make the space a wine rack or parking spot for a rolling bar cart.
The space can also be more utilitarian. For example, to hold appliances for your kitchen or to create a workspace nook.
Even to stow your bike or hide a TV.
