    You need to be creative to come up with shelving and storage ideas that really work and still look stylish. One often neglected area is under your stairs. And it’s a huge area that often equates to another room. You could use it for storing bikes, shoes or wine. But often these can look a little junky, temporary and messy.

    That’s why this under stairs storage is so cool… but what if you could do more than just use it for storage?

    Think about it, under stairs storage can be amazing for displaying your art, creating a child’s playroom, wall shelves, a book case, an office, bedroom, pantry storage or walk way. But what about a panic room or somewhere to keep your papers, safe or even a kitchen or bathroom?

    What about a fireplace or built in television? This could solve so many other issues for you – like security, privacy or a growing family.

    Creating new spaces and trading space for smarter rooms, probably means spending more time and effort in the design stage but would give you better use of your under stair space.

    I always look to you for ways to improve our home. This one you missed. Busy homes with children and working parents need this. Our home is the neighborhood hang out. I was running the dishwasher at least 3 times a day.Outdoor playing requires water and lots of water to drink.We added a beautiful porcelain water fountain with stairs included.Saved us money on running dishwasher and lost or broken cups. I sent you an email with our pictures. We are remodeling one of the oldest houses in our town and each room we design as a family and always a touch of modern yet unusual.
