Top 10 Things to do With Under Stairs Spaces



Today’s post comes about because I am annoyed. The reason I am annoyed is because for the hundredth time I have bumped my head on the small space underneath the stairs trying to get my shoes for work! I seem to do it every time, but surely there is something better to do with all that empty space! After a little bit of searching, I found lots of amazing things that people have done with that annoying little gap. So here are the best of them…

Located in the Dursley household, at 4 Privet Drive in Little Whinging, Surrey is “The cupboard under the stairs” and is the bedroom of Harry Potter. But the idea behind it is a sound one, and a great use of the otherwise unused space.

For myself there is no batter thing to do than turn that annoying gap under the stairs into a nice bit of quiet space for my dog. Not only will he like it, but I think I will enjoy making it.
