How adding storage under your basement stairs can get you the most out of your basement remodel

More and more homeowners are choosing to make the most out of their home improvement by transforming unused space into storage space.  I’m sure many of you have seen the storage trends that implement the space under the stairs on the main level of a home.  This trend has taken off within the last few years.


Another great space to add storage is under the stairs is in your basement.

Typically your basement becomes a catch all whether it be to store old items or children’s toys, quickly making the area unorganized.  By adding storage under you basement stairs you are only adding usability for the rest of your basement.  You are also taking the initiative to add storage space so that things don’t get disorganized.

You can use shelving or add cabinets to your new storage space.  If you go with shelving you can also use this area to decorate as well as store some of your items.  It all depends on the look you are trying to achieve.

The unused space under the stairs in your finished basement can serve several purposes.  If you have a pet you can turn that unused space into a sleep area for your pet.
