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?

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.
