Under the stairs storage is a great way to make use of the often-wasted space in a home. In London, where space is at a premium, this is especially important. The entrance hallway can be one of the hardest spaces in the house to properly utilise. In old and new-build homes in London the hallway and staircase are normally the first items you see when entering the home.
Due to the narrow space in the hallway you can be limited for storage units meaning coats can stack up on the hallway bannister and shoes piling up by the stairs making the area look cluttered and untidy. This is where under-the-stairs storage furniture is vital.
One of the best ways to utilise this space under the stairs is to install shelving or cabinets. This can be done by a professional and skilled carpenter. There are many different types of shelving and cabinetry that can be used, depending on your needs and budget. For example, you can choose from open shelves, closed cabinets, or a combination of both.
"Really knew the process and was very straight forward with us. Honest about the difference between the different types of shelves."
"We could not be happier with the fantastic job Paolo and his team did for us. They were all extremely helpful, responsive, friendly and reliable."
Stephen G. - London

Another great way to make use of the space under the stairs is to install a pull-out drawer or a set of drawers. Again, this requires a highly skilled carpenter to furnish this properly for you. These can be fitted from the tallest part of the space down to the bottom of the stairs. This is a great option if you need extra storage for items such as hanging up your coats, storing your shoes, bags, or other small items.
If you are looking for a more permanent solution, you can also consider building a small home office. This is a more involved project and will require the services of a professional carpenter to build and design to your specifications.
In summary, under the stairs storage is a great way to make use of the often-wasted space in a home or apartment. Regardless of which option you choose, adding a bespoke under stairs storage solution can transform the functionality and appearance of your entrance hallway. It is important to work with a professional carpenter to ensure that the space is used effectively and safely.
Bespoke carpentry, is often considered a better option than DIY units or pre-made furniture from IKEA for several reasons:
