Today’s post comes about because I am annoyed. The reason I am annoyed is because its 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…
10 – No Movie Magic needed!
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.
9 – The Business plan
If much like me you have your office space in the corner of a room, you might want to have some of your own space, so this under stairs office could well be the answer we are looking for. Well, I liked it anyway.
8 – Stair Worm
For those of us that are bookworms (like myself) why not turn that under the stairs space into a tidy looking bookshelf! Not only neat and tidy, but also cool and amazing.
7 – The Booze hole!
For those people who like wine, I give you the ultimate in wine bottle under the stairs storage. What I liked about this particular one (because there are a lot of wine racks under the stairs ideas out there) is that it was neat, tidy and can be store lots of different things.
6 – keep things cool!
White goods like the big fridge, washing machine and dryer are those sorts of things that don’t really fit anywhere. So why not hide them under the stairs! It looks great and is a fantastic use of the otherwise dead space.
5 – The spare restroom.
While I could never make it in a million years, the idea of turning the under stairs space into a bathroom is one of the best there is! But it is a fairly complicated DIY job for sure.
4 – Fish Stairs!
Well, it didn’t get into my post “Top 10 Unique Aquariums” but it is still a great idea for that under stairs space. shame I have no idea how to build an aquarium!
3 – The ultimate space saver
With the under stairs area of my own home being a sort of dumping ground for coats and shoes, this storage space not only looks amazing but also looks like the perfect idea!
2 – Suitable for little people.
I think I need to hide this amazing idea from my little one because I am sure he would love me to turn the under the stairs area into a play den.
1 – In the dog house.
For myself, there is no better 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.
