Make Room: Adding Storage Space Under The Stairs


You can never have too much storage space, especially in a small home. The quest for additional storage space has lead homeowners to the attic, the basement, and even under the stairs. Under-stair storage is a popular new storage method that takes advantage of otherwise empty space under the stairs to the second floor of your home. Unless your basement stairs are located directly under these stairs, the space here is open to use as storage space. Consider the following solutions to take advantage of the storage space under the stairs.

Adding Storage Space Under the Stairs


If you want to obscure your storage space, a closet is the ideal storage solution. Take advantage of shelves and wire organizers to store a wide variety of objects out of sight under the stairs.


If you’d prefer to keep your things out in the open, stair storage space is as simple as installing shelves on the sides along the risers.


For pull out ease, drawers are a great storage solution. Drawers can easily be installed to retract cleanly into the space under the stairs along the risers. For many, drawers offer the best of both worlds: easy access to belongings, with out-of-sight and out-of-mind storage potential.


Who said cabinets are just for the kitchen? Cabinets are another under stair storage option that offers easy access and interesting design potential. Use glass panes for a window, or stick with solid wood to keep the contents out of view.
