Love these ten clever under-stair design solutions. It does not have to be a waste of space or a closet.
A sloped ceiling, low-head height, and limited access to sunlight might mean some design restrictions, but that doesn’t mean that the area under a staircase is doomed to be a completely unusable space in your home.
In most multi-level residences, the space under stairs can create some unusual, awkwardly shaped spaces that can be difficult to program. Between its low-head height, sloped ceiling, and small square footage, it can be difficult to make this space useful Fortunately, several designers have come up with creative solutions to render this difficult spot under staircases as viable square footage in even the smallest of homes, where every inch counts. Take a look at some of the ways homeowners, architects, and interior designers have approached this challenging area of the home and turned it into a place of beauty and even respite.
