Storage System Solutions for Under Your Staircase

2 minute read, by Adrian Tucker, on Oct 22, 2021

When it comes to making the most of your home, using untapped space is key. There are often many spaces inside a home that you might skip over, not realizing their hidden potential – one of these being the storage space under your stairs. This space may seem unusable due to the awkward angles present, but this space can be one of the most useful areas for maximizing your home’s storage. Check out these under staircase storage solutions that will help with your organization, making life easier.


Bookshelves are a great way to maximize the storage under stairs. They add character to your stairs and showcase your collection of books, knick-knacks, and antiques. A built-in bookcase under a staircase with a cozy chair and the right lighting makes just the right environment for getting lost in a story.


We all want a bigger kitchen, but sometimes there isn’t enough space to meet all your kitchen storage needs. Adding pantry storage under your stairs is the perfect way to save space in your kitchen and utilize space that otherwise would go unused. A pantry acts as the perfect under stair storage system. You can add items to your pantry that are not daily use items but things you still need to be readily available at a moment’s notice. Ideally, the pantry would be near the kitchen, but it’s not such an issue when used for bulk storage.


For those trying to utilize every inch of space with their under-stair storage system, pull-out drawers are the perfect option. Drawers allow for a seamless look that blends right into the wall. This option allows for easy access and allows you to organize clothes, cooking ware, sports equipment, craft supplies, and clutter however you like. Drawers are a great option that can be customized to meet your specific storage needs.

Open Storage

For those needing quick access to the items stored under the stairs, open storage can be a great option. Open storage under stairs helps make that small space appear brighter and more open. Open storage is perfect for odd corners and angles often found below a staircase.  With open storage, there is no hiding your mess behind a cabinet door, so you are forced to keep up your organization. At a quick glance, you’ll know where everything is, making it easy to grab what you need and leave with a moment’s notice: perfect for backpacks, shoes, handbags, and more.
