When living in a multi-floor home, the essential question is always the same: how to maximize the space under the stairs?
Design and efficiency: four ideas how to take advantage of the space under the stairs
The space under tha stairs can be used for different purposes including more options than the classic storage closet.
Between design and beauty, we’ve got plenty of inspiration to improve the internal look of your under the stairs space.

2. Additional space for your kitchen
If the staircase is facing the kitchen, it can be utilized as a fantastic pantry! This is an ideal occasion to improve small kitchens with little storage space available.
Adding shelving elements within the space allows for storing everything from dried and canned goods to tableware-anything you may need when you’re working at the oven.
In this case, we advise a flushwall enclosure. You’ll be able to avoid annoying dust accumulation while simultaneously creating an elegant, functional space.
3. Integrating the livingroom
The space under the stairs, if completely hollowed out, may be used to enhance your livingroom. How about inserting a tv stand, hang some high-impact canvas, create a nook for showing off your collections or, if you’re a music lover, why not create a music room? A vintage record player and a collection of disks and you’re ready to go! It’s an idea that allows past and present to blend together in perfect synergy.
