Bookshelves & A Reading Nook Ideas For Utilizing The Space Underneath Your Double Stringer Straight Staircase

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.
