Stairs, for some, are a necessary evil. We need them to get up and down to the different floors in our home, but sometimes, they end up being more in the way. We look longingly at the space that they take up, and we wonder what could have been, had there only been more space in your home. The good news is, there are a couple of ways that you can renovate your staircase so that it saves space and is more useful.

Storage Area

The most obvious use for a staircase is that you use the area underneath to store things. You can build a closet underneath there and put in a couple of shelves, and there you go. A lot of people will use the storage area under their staircase in order to store more food; that way, they’ve got more room in the kitchen for appliances.

This is probably the most unique thing that you can do with your staircase. By taking some shelves and building them into the underside of the staircase, you can make bookshelves and/or shelves that you can use to display certain items in your home. Bookshelves take up a lot of space, so if you can make them more compact, you better well do it! You may want to talk to a contractor or some commercial painters before you try this, so that you don’t compromise the integrity of the staircase that you are using for the project, but many times, you can actually do it without making many changes to the way the staircase is set up.

Hidey Hole

If you have a larger, open area underneath the staircase, why not renovate it into a little hidey hole? Make it somewhere that your kids can go if they need to take a moment to calm down, or use it as somewhere that you can meditate, away from the rest of the world. You can fill it with peaceful drawings, put a beanbag in there, get some lighting, and you will be set to go. It may be a little too small for some people, but for others, this area is perfect.

The possibilities are endless! There are so many different things that you can do with your staircase, and it only takes a few changes to make sure that you can get the most out of that space. What are you going to do with your staircase?
