Inside every house, there is an extremely valuable functional space, often ignored by the inhabitants, where lots of things can be kept, thus helping you maximize the useful space in your home: the under stairs storage closet.
Below are described some simple, yet very effective ideas to help you organize that area and give it practical uses. You can also check here – http://closetbox.me/.
We all need a place to keep our shoes instead of just lining them up on the hallway, so what about installing some shoe racks in the under-stairs storage closet? The only thing you’ll need to consider before going shopping will be that this type of shelving needs to be slightly slanted downward to fit the shape of the available space. An even simpler solution would be to have some chrome or nickel rails installed.
Plenty of stuff can be kept in the under-stairs storage closet if you choose to install several shelves in that area. You will thus create a perfect store room for all those items you cannot keep anywhere else in the house, from canned products to new dinnerware or glassware and storage boxes or linens.
Poles and shelves
All you need is two poles and a top shelf. What you stack over there is entirely up to you, whether it is your collection of folded winter sweaters, or a set of hangers for your jackets and trousers.
The under-stairs area makes a perfect place for your washing machine and anything else you need in the process (a basket for the laundry or detergents). You can cover this laundry closet with hinged or folding doors, or as little as a canvas curtain.
A simple desk where you can place your computer and printer, a stool with wheels to be rolled in under the desk, a couple of boxes on some shelves for the office supplies and a lamp: you have created a very nice corner in the house where you can privately work without being interrupted by the other members of your family.
In case you were looking for a storage closet for your valuable collection of wine bottles, this is the perfect place in the house; if you add a small cupboard for the extra equipment (cork screws, glassware, napkins and a top shelf for setting the open bottles), you will have a cozy space to be shared while chatting with your best pals.
