3 Ways To Utilize The Space Under Your Stairs
Maximize the potential of the most overlooked spot at home
Whether it's landing zones or the back of the sofa, there are a lot of areas with design possibilities that go unnoticed—this is especially true for the space under the stairs.
Most homeowners tend to leave it out of their decor plans thinking there isn't much to work with. However, with the right execution—from reading nooks to a functional home office—you can really pack a punch in this tiny spot.
We've listed down three fresh ways that you can do to make the most of this part of the home.
A house for your pets
If you share the space with dogs, cats, or any other furry friends, you can convert the space into a little sleeping area for them. If you're not too keen on going for a permanent design (as seen in photo), you can choose to go with a simple door instead. Just make sure to make the interior as cozy as possible with a lot of pillows and chew toys.
RL Tip: Keep the floor from being a fur magnet by refraining from using carpets and fiber rugs.

A play area for toddlers
Every child dreams of having a space where they can let their imagination run wild. Incorporate a playroom into your home by adding open shelving for fairytale books and arranging small furniture beneath the staircase. Make it seamlessly tie with your home decor by picking pieces in the same color palette.
RL Tip: Since kids tend to make a mess during play time, this is a great way to keep clutter at bay since they have a designated spot for their toys!

A bar for drinks with friends
For those who love to entertain guests and host parties, save yourself the trips of going back and forth from the kitchen by having a bar that's right in your living area. You can go as far as adding a sink and a working fridge where you can chill a few beers and store snacks.
