Under the Stairs

Under the Stairs…it sounds a bit like a tween horror book, doesn’t it.  But instead, I present to you these gorgeous inspiration pictures for the potential your staircase may or may not have.  Unfortunately for us, underneath our stairs is another set of stairs to the basement…so even though I covet all of these beautiful uses of what is sometimes ‘dead space’ in a home, I can’t actually put any of these fantastic ideas into practice.

Guess I’ll have to live vicariously through Pinterest, yet again!

This drawer system has been on my mind for years now.  It is just so classy looking!

And these options have me seriously wishing I could take advantage of just a leeeetle bit of space from the basement stairs in our home to facilitate a mini-mudroom in our foyer.

Carving out a workspace under the stairs seems like a great way to utilize the space like in these next few examples.

Even a simple shelf system can transform a small, underutilized space into something with loads of function.

This under-the-stairs daybed is such a cozy nook…I can entirely see myself curled up with a book enjoying a latte.

…I would love to have had such a fun play space as a kid!

Rounding out the inspiration today are these drawers actually built into the steps.

Do you have any dead space under your stairs?  Am I the only one who bookmarks things that can never happen in my home?
