18 Clever Uses for the Space Under Your Stairs
Have you ever found yourself searching for the perfect place to snuggle up and read a book? Or maybe you’ve filled up every corner of your place and you still need more space. While it may seem impossible, we can think of one spot you probably haven’t looked. Under your stairs! You may need to put a hole in the wall or dust away the cobwebs, but there is plenty of space there, and here are 18 ways that you can fill it!
8. Cozy Nook: It’s so nice to have a cozy space for you and your little ones for rainy day picnics and afternoon reading. Put some pillows under the stairs and let the snuggling begin. (via Urban Walls)
11. Drawers: It’s so easy to let our doorways become piles of shoes, pet leashes and baseballs. Keep the clutter under control by adding some drawers under your staircase for easy cleanup. (via My Home Ideas)
18. Packed With Pillows: Filling up the space under your stairs with pillows can create a comfortable space for reading the newspaper, talking to your mom on the phone or even working from home. And if none of those are things you do, it’s always a good go-to for napping :) (via SI Live)
