Making the Most of Space Under the Stairs

Storage Under Stairs - Rustic Entryway

Oftentimes when people come over to our house, they are surprised to find our organized pantry tucked in the space under our stairs. I guess in many homes that little area is simply filled with junk, I know we’ve been guilty of that in the past ourselves! But if you want to take that small space in your home and turn it into something more useful or inspiring, here are a few great ideas!

OK, that one isn’t UNDER the stairs but AHHH! The cuteness.

    Sadly, the space under our stairs is actually the route down to the basement, so no chance for a darling space like any of these!

    I just love the photos you posted. I only wish I could Pin them on Pinterest. Is there a way to do that? I tried to go to the source of the photos but was led to Houzz, where you can’t pin them.

  6. I love these! Our house was built in 1916 – there’s an original closet under the stairs that we call the “Harry Potter.” Very practical and great use of space, but not as cute as these.

    We built a cat area under our stairs with a mouse hole entry. Unfortunately, they won’t use it! It has litter boxes, a light and an automatic fan that comes on when they go in. I welcome any suggestions on how I can get my three cats to use this area.

  8. What a great collection of ideas! My favorite is the bookcase on the wall going up of course, but I’m constantly reading so that isn’t s surprise! One question, in the fourth picture down, the FarmHouse Staircase by Sherman Oaks- what is that adorable tiny door to the left of the bigger one?! My curiosity and imagination is going crazy!

  9. Your photos almost make me wish we had stairs! When we had stairs in Ohio, they led to the basement, so we couldn’t have made that area into a special space anyway!

    Now I want stairs just to put in that great bank of drawers!

  11. Awesome ideas- I’ve used the space under the stairs for many things…the last one was a play area for the grandkids….we called it the bubble room. As we are building a new home…the space under the stairs is going to be used as my office. Thanks for sharing.
