Want creative stair design ideas? Remodeling your stairway? Or creating a new construction stair design? Why just upgrade from bad to good when you could make it extraordinary? While this can be expensive, even cost prohibitively so, with a little ingenuity you might just create a design for your staircase that is both amazing and inexpensive.
Often the space under the stairs is a dead zone. Wall it in, close it off, add a door and call it a closet, or rather junk closet is often a more accurate description. This doesn’t have to be the case, with a slight adjustment in stair design, this unique space can often be transformed not only into somewhere useful but something stunning. While the possibilities are virtually endless, unfortunately, most of us are limited by a budget so I’ve kept these examples within the typical range of possibilities.
Depending upon the type of stairs you have and what you would like to achieve there are a number of options. For those simply wanting to maximize space why not consider a bike rack like this.
Under the stairs cabinets beautifully display in an interesting geometric array. Maximize your space while utilizing this often wasted space as a unique feature in your home. Here are a few examples to get your creative juices flowing.
Most of these stair designs are very easy to achieve because they do not encroach into the structure of the staircase itself. Adding lighting is a great enhancement to a beautiful and elegant under the stairs bookshelf.
The stairs in this ingenious design are actually constructed from the shelves themselves.
You can also use the following unique approach to beautifully utilize the space while keeping your items neatly organized and hidden away in readily accessible drawers.
Even the steps themselves can be used as drawers, with a little extra stair design.
Your imagination is your only limit, evaluate your stairs, the design of the home then research the unlimited possibilities to help you define the use of your personal space under the stairs. Here are a few more examples, our favorite being the Child’s Playhouse. What a wonderful idea to use that space to inspire your children. Aquariums, entertainment centers, wet bars, kitchenettes, bedrooms and more, it is up to you how far you want to take this stair design transformation.
