Cool and clever under stair storage ideas
These under stair storage ideas will maximise space and deliver on style
Maxing out your space with under stair storage ideas, means more than creating a place to shove the ironing board, wellies and winter coats.
The space under the staircase offers a wealth of opportunities, from kitchen pantries and cloakrooms to utility areas and book cases.
These spaces can be cleverly disguised too, as you will see from the under stair storage ideas ahead, so your hallway stays warm and welcoming.
Bespoke kitchen manufacturer, Mowlem & Co has used the space under this mezzanine staircase for tuck a pantry into this open-plan kitchen-dining space.

Architect David Money has maximised his under stair storage to create a utility area at the tallest end and further bike storage in the middle, all cleverly concealed behind linear plywood panelling and doors.
Architect John Eger of Eger Architects redesigned this staircase in oak, replacing what had been an area for a lift with a glazed lightwell, hung with new lighting. On the other side, tucked under the stairs is bespoke kitchen cabinetry.
BACK TO BASICS
In this home, the space under the stairs has been carved out for an extra W.C. as well as a storage idea for small space. Handy, for the family and visitors wanting to wash hands on arrival.
The flash of pink on the stylish stair runner and artwork inject personality into the hallway.
