What Is An Under The Stairs Closet?
This is a wonderful question. Have you ever looked at your staircase and thought to yourself, “hmm, there must be something under there.” Well, I am here to tell you that there is something under there…storage space. You are just letting that precious square footage be wasted under there.
An under-stairs closet is essentially when someone actually utilizes the space beneath their stairs. The ideas below are going to give you some great ideas on how to go about doing that.

2. Flush Drawers – You will be seeing a lot of drawers that are this style throughout this list because they are just so awesome! There is nothing worse than walking by and snagging your shirt onto a nob. This makes your storage so hidden that you may even forget they are there.
3. Simple Pull Out Drawers – You don’t have to make use of the entire space if you don’t want to. Take this idea for example, they have 2 small drawers to work with. Still, it looks cute AND it’s functional.
4. Hidden Compartments – Thinking about getting hidden compartments? I think this is a wonderful idea. It will really bring your storage game from 0 to 100, real quick.
5. Drawers Cabinet with Space for Washer – I love this idea. Not very often do you see someone using this space to do laundry, but why not? What else would you be using this space for?
6. Little Under the Stairs Spaces – This person uses the flush cabinets, but then went a step further by adding little organizational compartments within the cabinets. This is awesome!
7. Simple Light Green Stairs – Though I am showing you these ideas for functionality, I also wanted to show you ideas that are going to be good for the aesthetics of your house as well. What is the point of having a house if it is not going to be adorable?
8. Washer and Dryer Under Stairs – here is another example of someone putting a washer and dryer under their stairs. Perhaps it’s more common than I thought!
9. Wine Organization Idea – If you collect wine, then you should use your staircase as the perfect little wine cellar. There are so many ways that you can do this, but built-in organizational shelves are my favorite.
