If your stairs are close to your kitchen, there is no reason why you can’t have a pantry by converting the space underneath your stairs.

Maybe you’ve been working from home for a while and are finding you’re lacking space, or perhaps you’ve had a new addition to the family and need more storage.

Adding new storage can often be difficult, especially when you’re running out of room, but utilizing the space underneath the stairs could be the perfect solution. Handily tucked out of the way, you can add a whole new element of storage without compromising on floor space.

Here are just some of the ways you can make use of this area:

Toy Storage

Have you recently stood on a piece of Lego and had to strain to stop yourself from launching into a loud expletive? That alone is enough of a cause for adding storage under your stairs.

If you have children, toys inevitably end up everywhere, and this can become both unsightly and dangerous as they pose serious trip hazards.

Adding a wardrobe under the stairs will give you a dedicated area for the toys that can be easily accessed both to get them out and to tidy them away at the end of the day.

Once the wardrobe has been installed, you can make use of lots of clever storage ideas to encourage your children to take responsibility for tidying up their own things.

Pet Paradise

If you have a furry friend at home, under the stairs might be the perfect space for them to set up base.

Don’t worry; this doesn’t need to be a Harry Potter-style under-stairs box room for them to be banished to. Instead, you can have fun by creating a built-in bed or kennel for them.

This is a good option if you have a busy household and having a large pet or crate is impractical. This is likely to work particularly well if you have an anxious pet who enjoys cosying up in an enclosed area.

Pantry

Do you find yourself endlessly scrolling through Pinterest, looking at dreamy pantries? Perfectly labeled jars and easy-to-grab snacks all encased in a beautiful pantry can seem out of reach if you have a smaller home.

If your stairs are close to your kitchen, there is no reason why you can’t have a pantry by converting the space underneath your stairs. This can be made personalized to you and could be the perfect solution to storing all your dry food while freeing up space in your kitchen.

If you have a furry friend at home, under the stairs might be the perfect space for them to set up base.

Library

If you read or watched Matilda as a child, chances are you dreamed about having your own home library at one point or another.

By adding a bookcase, a comfy chair, and some soft lighting, there’s no reason this dream can’t become a reality. You can create the perfect environment to lose yourself in a good book and disconnect from the stresses of everyday life.
