Under the Staircase

We did a post the other day on stair runners that was a big hit.  As we were compiling pictures and information about the runners, we came across a few images of what goes on under the stairs that have beautiful runners on them.  Under staircases offer a great place to add storage for anyone who might need it.  This could be someone who has a small house or someone who wants to use it as a coat closet for guests.  Either way, there are a lot of options for someone who has space under the stairs.  Bookshelves are a great use for the space and can be just as useful as built in bookcases or a standing bookcase somewhere around your home.  If you have space under your staircase in the kitchen, placing your refrigerator and dishwasher is a great way to use the space.  Others like this first picture create a different way to store their things and is a great way to hide extra clutter.  


Tell us: Do you have a spot for storage under your staircase?

What a great use of space. Very creative.

Getting creative with that space may be just the extra storage that one may need; and if it can be pretty too, then it definitely gets my vote!

I have always thought that storage under the staircase is SO wonderful! Have a file on the idea and still waiting to do it some day.

I immediately thought about my staircase - which houses the coat closet. In the new house, we have an open stairwell that goes both upstairs and down to the basement, but - there is a little space under the stairs in the basement - will definitely keep this post in mind!
