Really good article with some really good ideas. The pictures really bring to life the possible uses of “underneath the stairs” space. I don’t know if I would use a part of the stairs as storage that would pull out, I’d be scared of seeing the corner coming out as I come down and that resulting in someone falling down.

Key Takeaways:

  • With a little thought, the generally unused space under the stairs can be an important a part of your house.
  • You can use it as a functional space, such as a kids’ playroom or a small study.
  • It can also be used for creative storage, such as a bookshelf or set of drawers.

“Alternatively, you could close in the space: Kids love playrooms, and they love making huts and hiding away. This California house — which is otherwise lovely and adult, with white walls and bleached floors — includes a tiny windowless area under the stairs that’s painted a vibrant, disruptive green.”
