10 Brilliant Under Stairs Storage Ideas
Space, that something that we always need and which is never enough. We feel that every day, especially at home, where, however neatly we might arrange things, they never fit. But for those living in an at least two story house, the solution may come from where you expect the least. To inspire you in identifying those smart storage places, here are 10 brilliant under stairs storage ideas, coming via Buzzfeed.com.
A cabinet or more, arranged to meet your personal needs, in spaces which can take on multiple uses. It is probably the most often met use of this under stairs space because it is the handiest and the most practical at the same time.
If you have no space to pull over after a bike ride, then try under the stairs. Hang your little two wheel vehicle and get rid of the obsession and nightmare of the parking space which people living in blocks usually have.
If there’s space for more than a drawer, don’t hesitate to use it for more relaxing purposes. For instance, set up a small bar under the stairs. It will be your intimate corner, especially for men, and no one will notice when you will discreetly find some work to do in that part of the house.
If it’s not a bar, then it can very well become a small wine cellar, in diverse designs, but all displaying that original look. This will surely become the social epicenter of the home.
Shelves for books or even a whole bookshelf that can perfectly mold to that often underutilized space. Try to divide into several compartments for a multiple and efficient use.
Give this space enhanced dimensions by means of mirrored cabinet doors, a classic tip that expands the limits of a small room.
If the sides of the staircase don’t allow you to turn to such creative ideas, then dig for them. Don’t waste anything of the opportunities to use this ingenious storage space.
And, finally, for those working from home, in the true spirit of modern times and always on the move, a small working space set up under the stairs can become your tiny professional corner where to find the much needed motivation (if you don’t have it already).
