Under stairs storage ideas to transform your space
The space under your stairs may be small, but there are so many storage designs you can choose from. Whether you’re storing coats, shoes, or the kids’ toys and games, how you use your space should determine your design. Take a look at some of our favourite under stairs storage ideas below.
Stay organised with under stairs shelving
If the space under your stairs is quite narrow, shelving is a great option because it allows you to make the most of what space you do have. What’s more, it allows you to display everything clearly and neatly, so you know exactly where everything is.
You can achieve under stairs shelving with shelving towers, floating shelves or a mix of both. For an even neater look, you can also add drawers.
Create more functionality with home office furniture
Under your stairs can actually be a great place for a home office as it’s a cornered off space that’s just enough room for a desk. If you have enough room surrounding it too, you could create a corner home office with shelving and a desk.
Use hanger rails and shoe racks for simple under stairs storage
Adding wardrobe components to your under stair storage can be a quick and affordable way to stay organised. Hanger rails and shoe racks keep your things neat and tidy, so they’re easy to grab while you’re on your way out the door.
Style your under stairs cupboard with sliding doors
Adding sliding doors to your under stairs cupboard can create a sleek and stylish look, hiding all your belongings neatly within. If the height of your cupboard is more than 1100mm, you could choose sliding doors from Spaceslide, fixed to the angular roof with wall liners.
How to build under stairs storage
To build under stairs storage, you first need to consider which storage system you’d prefer. Are you opting for shelves and drawers? Hanging rails or shoe racks? Or how about fitted doors? Once you’ve decided, you’ll need to measure your space, so that you can choose the right fitting components.
Choosing a shelving tower is very straightforward because you don’t need to think too much about the design - it’s just a case of following the flatpack instructions. If you’re fitting hanging rails or floating shelves, you’ll need to drill these into the wall. Doors will also need thorough measuring and fitting.
If you’re unsure about measurements and components, you can get free expert advice from Spaceslide. For building and fitting, you can also opt for our professional installation service.
How much does it cost to build storage under the stairs?
The cost of under stairs storage depends on the design you choose. If you simply want hanger bars and shoe racks, these can cost from as little as £30 for both. Storage units on the other hand, provide you with flawless organisation and can cost between £200 and £600.
