The space underneath a staircase is often underutilized. However, if you use and decorate the space the right way, you can spice up your home while creating a beautiful space and better functionality. Not sure what you should do? Here are a few ideas to help you get started.
Bookshelves & A Reading Nook
Add a bookcase and a seating area and have all of your favorite books right under the stairs, while relaxing on a comfy chaise by the window. Who wouldn’t love a mini library and comfy reading chair to unwind from a busy day?
Under the stairs is great for any extra needed storage. Add a subtle pantry to store out of season gear or add a few drawers to store bags, shoes and other accessories. Consider adding hangers and a bench with storage baskets so every family member has a designated area for coats, umbrellas and shoes.
You’ll have a more functional and organized look in your entry way.
Have a lot of work to do? Create a small, quiet and cozy work space to get your work done. If there is enough room; add a computer and desk chair. Maybe add several shelves for your books and paperwork.
