Would You Prefer a Dog House or Playhouse Beneath Your Stairs?

girl and her dogFrom reading nooks to pantries, we thought we’d seen it all when it came to utilizing the space under your stairs, but we’ve recently stumbled upon two incredible projects that have completely changed our minds about what it is possible to accomplish with the space beneath your stairs. Whether Fido is in need of a cozy place of his own or you are looking to give your children a one-of-a-kind play area, we have all the inspiration you need.

Dog House

Everyone, including your dog, loves to have a special place that is all their own. The perfect place for your pet to relax after a long walk at the park or to snuggle up during a thunderstorm, this under the staircase dog house is a comfortable and stylist alternative to the dog crate. Filled with your pet’s favorite chew toys and a fluffy bed, this house is every dog’s dream. And you don’t have to worry about finding an out of the way spot to put that ugly metal crate the next time guests come over!


Another incredible way to use the space beneath your stairs is by building a playhouse for your children. There is nothing more creative than a child’s mind, so let their ideas and curiosity blossom in a special space just for them. Already have a playroom in your finished basement? This is an addition that your family will look back on fondly in the years to come. There are plenty of themes to choose one, so use your children’s current interests as a guide or choose a neutral option they can grow with in the future.
