Clever Under Stair Storage Idea


I have been very taken with the idea of small, perfectly formed homes of late.  In small houses, you need to be highly creative in terms of storage solutions.  I'm always amazed by how much storage you can build into a home... all those wasted nooks and crannies can be easily turned into excellent cupboards, drawers and shelves.  I love the great under stair solution above - it provides the perfect combination of practical storage space with aesthetic appeal.  The little reading nook is ideal for small bodies and cats!

LOVE IT!! Oh wow, i am building a home next year & want a mud room for my 4 busy children with all their gum boots, school shoes, sports gear & the dreaded school bags, this is simply beautiful, like an upmarket locker room. Thanks for the inspiration, love Posie
PS 'twill also be my laundry, so want it to scream 'motherly' pretty & stay tidy - i spend a lot of time in there!!

Brilliant Ang- we're on the same page with the likelihood of us going smaller in our next house- it's how you use the space that becomes all important. xx

I l-o-v-e storage and this is very clever and beautiful. We have always built a store room under our stairs which never really works as it is too squishy and there is lots of space wasted. Might keep this in mind for the next house!! Have a lovely week...

I love the reading nook - as an avid reader, I love to discover new and comfortable places to curl up with a good book. Coupled with the clever landing for miscellaneous outerwear, it is an ingenious design.
