Under-stairs Storage: Transform Your Stairway Into A Functional Feature

Design Lifestyle

Every homeowner desires a spacious and welcoming abode, and ingenious storage solutions can help to facilitate this where space is limited. Such solutions can be utilised in the space under a staircase, where Neville Johnson’s under-stairs storage designs are the perfect way to transform your stairway into a functional, space-saving and stylish feature.

Compact Living At Its Finest

Compact living is about making the most of every square metre by turning unused areas of the home into innovative storage solutions. The stairs can often be overlooked but with clever planning, they can be transformed into a multi-functional feature.

Living in a compact manner has many positives. Using every bit of space will mean that you have a place for everything  meaning your home will feel less cluttered and more minimal

Here at Neville Johnson we make this clever storage solution possible, whilst ensuring that the design fits seamlessly within the stairs so you hardly know it’s there.

What Under-stairs Storage Can Be Used For

Under-stairs storage has a plethora of uses, from storing your bulky winter coats, to serving as a tidy office space or hideaway nook.

Perhaps the most obvious use for under-stair storage is for keeping coats and jackets, both of which can take up a lot of space in the home. Installing a rail means they can be hung neatly, avoiding creases and ready to wear.

Leaving space above rails, as shown above, is also an excellent way to maximise the space, lending itself as the perfect place to store large bags.

Another great use of this area is for shoes, which can often be difficult to find a home for. Installing millimetre fit drawers will enable you to store multiple pairs of shoes all within easy reach.

Let your creativity flow, with under-stair storage there are many more ways you can use the space. You can turn the area into a hideaway reading nook, perfect for young children to retreat to. It also lends itself to being an excellent space for storing office essentials and paperwork, another great use for those working from home.

Creating More Space

Maximising space is crucial to getting the most out of your home. Under-stairs storage not only frees up more space, but it eliminates the need for bulky storage elsewhere.  This will ensure that your home’s grandeur and aesthetic flows throughout every room, uninterrupted by unnecessary clutter or cupboards.

Not only this but transforming an unused space will stand the test of time and see you through many years to come. Whether you want to change the use of space to be an area for sitting in as opposed to storing items, this can be achieved and the result will be a whole new livable space to enjoy.

Transform A Hidden Space, Instantly

Under-stairs storage is an effortless way to renovate an area of your home whilst making a massive difference. Often renovations can be associated with knocking down walls or adding extensions, but this transformation is just as effective and doesn’t ruin the feng shui of your home.

The simplicity yet innovativeness of this under-stairs storage design means that it fits elegantly with your pre-existing staircase and doesn’t take away from its timelessness.

The design of the under-stairs storage can be suited to your needs and style. Whether you are wanting to keep the space open or hide items away, the choice is yours.
