staircase under space design

Fans of the Harry Potter saga would know that he slept in a room under the stairs, a place where normal folks use as closet space. As these 8 examples will show you, there is more than one way to use the space under the stairs, and while they are not to house a teen wizard, that space, no matter how little, can be put to more practical use.

You can reinvent it as a place for reading, storage, work or a quiet nap (with an excellent view). There are surely more great ways to save space in the home and if you know more of these inspiring ideas, let us know.

  1. Why waste the space when you can turn it into a powder room?
  2. Have no room to keep your bicycles outside? Just hang them up under the staircase.
  3. That’s a nice place to chill out and read a book or two.
  4. You can also put together a nice shelf for exotic things you get from your travels.
  5. Add a window, a sofa and you have the perfect place to nap under the warmth of the sun.
  6. Aside from storing books, you can also use the space under the stairs to store wine bottles.
  7. Put a few drawers in and you have places to store your umbrella, golf clubs, shoes, bags etc.
  8. For the bulk of the area, working sink; for the smaller wedges, wine!
