The Space under the Stairs

I am going to share some great design solutions for that often under utilized space under the stairs.

You will actually be amazed at all of the great ideas that I found! I remember having to get in the space under the stairs as it was the safest place in our home from a threatening tornado. Most homeowners only think of this area for a coat closet, but I found a variety of great design solutions!
