Certainly for those who find it difficult to get rid of the stuffs can see what I mean, and that the need for storage of goods will be endless. Let us discuss what we can do to leverage new storage area.
Work space under the stairs
Have you ever imagined in your mind to create a work space under the stairs? Basically not so many people are aware of this. The difficulty of this is that the empty space under the stairs should be wide enough to contain the table plus some additional shelves. Surely these include a PC or laptop. To create a work space under the stairs, you should consider two possibilities below.
The first is to think where the desk will be placed facing the wall or in the opposite direction. Anyway, we optimize the use of empty space under the stairs as much as possible.
You can install the door if you do not want to feel annoyed when you’re working on your documents. The best option you can use the sliding doors because they do not spend a lot of places, but quite expensive. Ordinary doors can be selected but not always look attractive.
Although there are doors or not, facing the wall or not, you can explore in creating a work area under the stairs, and this is good news from all the possibilities.
Ways to Utilize Empty Areas Under the Stairs are there in the hallway
The hall was crowded with people milling around like an intersection on a street filled with busyness. Because it is like that, it’s good if we keep something that is always necessary at any time. Different situations will produce different use because it is up to you if you prefer a blank area under the stairs as a decoration or for a place to store goods. One idea suggested is to use the empty area to store shoes and clothing during the summer or winter. You can put a door closed, or leave it open.
To make all family members have their own room, the inside of your room can be divided into several sections. You can use the empty area to expand your interior setting. I once saw an armchair that looks so right in that area, if you prefer, you can add decorations that you like there. But if you are typical of people who are not too concerned about style and just need extra space to store items such as bicycles, sports equipment and so on, then this area is a suitable place, because it is rarely used, but can always easily accessible.
How to utilize the space under the stairs of your living room
When compared to the hallway then the living rooms is certainly more comfortable, therefore the stairs in the living room would be great and stylish so bad modification can destroy all the beauty that already exists ven if you use the furniture that always uptodate. So think about everything before you start making a change. The key to make the changes you made look good, do not include elements that can not blend with the surroundings.
In decorating a room, especially the area under the stairs in the living room, then you should emphasize functionality because what we want is a multipurpose extra space. Do you think the bookcase under the stairs is perfect? Maybe your answer is yes. If you find that you’ve done it, congratulations, you have worked well. If not, try! There is no harm, because none of the books are measuring up to three feet.
Book shelves in this area is perfect because you can customize it by creating one higher or lower than the other or shorter and longer than the others. To add flavor you can add texture and color or placing electronic devices because the decor has its own place in this section.
Creating Kitchen Under the Stair
This is a creative idea that is strongly recommended for those of you who own a house with a limited area and that are no longer able to consider other things. In my opinion, a kitchen made under the stair is not very advisable because even though I have a hobby of cooking, I have to worry about dust or shoelaces that may fall on the dish I’m cooking.
Meanwhile, for those of you who have a house large enough, the remaining space under the stairs you can fill with equipment such as stoves. In addition, you can put small shelves to accommodate decorative plates and cups of coffee, and even spices. I remember my first experience when I walk in somewhere and see the old styled house with walls of stone and fitted with the mold for extra spices. The house is a small house filled with cubicles made of very strong wood just like a small letter box and there were many of them, there are small containers for storing spices from all over the world. This man knew what he was doing.
Shelf under the stairs
Certainly you agree that the best way to handle the empty space under the stairs in the living room is a locating a lot of shelf. No furniture is too heavy, many objects can be placed there. You are advised to choose a rack with varying sizes and slightly asymmetrical because usually the size of the area under the stairs do not have a dimension that is straight at the top of, therefore look for other methods that you see fit. What you should think about it in this case is the location of the stairs, because the items needed for each location of the stair is not always the same. For example, the rack can be placed just under the stairs in the living room and different from the space under the stairs in the hallway that can carry larger objects such as baseball equipment or even a bicycle. Objects that can be stored on a shelf under the stairs in the living room is small objects such as vase, decoration, photographs, and books. Empty area under the stair with extra storage, so use as much as possible because you will always keep something in there.
Doors and cupboard under the stair
To satisfy our desire for the storage, cabinets are now available with a variety of colors, materials, and varying shapes. But there is an issue that seems to be missed, at least until now. The topics we discussed today is the empty space under the stairs, it seems very appropriate if you make a rack equipped with locks and doors. Space under the stairs is an area with a closed angle, so if you install the rack and the door there, that’s enough.
Forms of these cabinets can be modular, meaning that any existing cabinets you can use by putting them under your stairs, or you can install a door until the closed area that you just created can be used to store goods. At my parents’s house, I find things like this. This area is a place covered with a rack that is used to place a shoe and has a sliding door. As a child, I remember when I used to hide there. Because of its location in the hall, then this area is very practical, able to carry lots of stuff and the location to the entrance is pretty close. Usually we keep shoes in there but we can save any object other than balls, golf clubs, and others. This area is easily accessible and very safe.
Creating Drawers under the stair
Suddenly I thought about putting a few pieces of drawers under the stairs, and it was very brilliant idea, especially for those of you who really love your belongings and want to set it in such a way. You can make the drawers in large, medium, and small size and then put it in there. In an event, I find things like this. Due to the limited extent of this area then the owner put a few pieces of drawers under the stairs where all items can be stored properly and safely.
All items such as fabrics and other items stored in the drawer are placed vertically so it looks neat. If you need additional storage space, this could be your benchmark. When compared with shelves, drawers are better solutions to organize your storage items, other than that the drawer has a better view than the shelf and this adds to the magic into your room, as well as satisfaction.
For people who want something more elaborate, you can create a large drawer that comes in the form of vertical sliding door, then inside of it you can make some smaller drawers. This method is very suitable for those of you who have two children, one child can use a small-sized drawers for storing socks, underwear, shirts, and so on, while the large can be used by you.
Wine storage in the Lower Ladder
Wine is a special beverage that we like so much. One of the things we might think is a safe storage place and if possible under the stairs. I do not really know but I often see bottles of wine stored in wooden casks, this might be useful to create a special flavor and that is why wine is stored in wooden barrels. One thing is certain, it is very hard to find wines that are sold in wooden casks, which are available only in glass bottles and of course the rack is made of wood.
Wine should be kept as far away from sunlight and stored in a cooler place, if not, then this will make the wine seem more sour or bitter. In addition, it would be better if the wine is served at room temperature, there are wines that can be served cold, but the types are not too many, in this case, you can use the refrigerator. To keep lots of bottles of wine then we need lots of shelves and racks that are usually made of wood and has other uses such as an element of beauty. Of course the wine collection that are arranged neatly will make people who visit your home feel interested. This will make your home warm, luxurious and memorable, and full of joy.
Wooden shelves Under the Stairs
Wine storage area located under the stairs looking very stylish and has many functions. The area under the stairs is valuable and must be used for many purposes, then set up at our will. This type of rack that we make will affect the appearance of the room, therefore complete the rack with drawers and sliding doors, and then place them under the stairs. It is so amazing if you can do it yourself, of course, the result would be very nice and you can get practical values.
In my opinion, this is a creativity with high value because oftentimes the people today are more likely to use products with futuristic design which lost its traditional elements that are less creative. The things we discussed here are new ideas to change something we already know and make it more efficient. I’m just trying to make where we live become more comfortable and beautiful and not trying to patronize you, so, try making the rack using your own ideas.
