Lack of sufficient storage is one of the top reasons people invest in self storage units. But there are some clever solutions you can try when you have items you want to store at home but lack the space to do it. One such remedy is to add storage beneath a staircase.

Southgate Storage offers Napa storage units that help get your life in order. We’re committed to helping you make your space work for you!

Under Stair Storage vs. Self Storage

Of course, self storage units are a convenient and cost-effective place to keep your unused belongings. They’re also a terrific way to eliminate the clutter of items you only use occasionally, such as seasonal tools and sports equipment.

But what about when you want to keep certain items close at hand? Or what if you’re one of the many people who can’t stand the idea of empty space not being put to good use? Either way, you can transform the area under the stairs into a functional living or storage space you’ll love.

From pantries to libraries, these ideas should help inspire your under-stair storage project!

Under Stair Bookshelves

If you’ve always wanted a library but never had the room for one, install some custom shelves or cabinets under the stairway and fill them with your favorite novels. Depending on how much space you have, you can even add a couple of reading chairs and a small side table.

Storage Drawers

Sliding drawers at the width of two to three stairs apiece are ideal for storing shoes, boots, sporting equipment, bookbags, and more. They’re a particularly helpful solution for smaller homes that lack sufficient closet space.

Create a Pantry

Many homeowners dream of a walk-in pantry but lack sufficient kitchen space to install one. Create a staircase pantry with floating shelves, rolling carts, and lots of clear containers for storing dry goods. You’ll also gain a bit more space in the kitchen!

Build a Wet Bar

Talk about a unique happy hour! All you need to create a cozy under stairs wet bar is a countertop for mixing and serving drinks, a mini fridge, and cabinets or shelving for storing supplies and bottles.

Set Up a Custom Storage Room

Its awkward shape can make the area under the stairs challenging to maximize. One simple and fast project is to install sturdy shelves and then use various size clear containers to store holiday decorations, linens, and seasonal clothing.
