I love this photo (though I’m sorry I can’t credit it as I really don’t know whose it is!). The space under stairs is often wasted and this is a fabulous solution for those who need more storage (most of us).
Bespoke built-in shelving and cabinetry really is such an effective way to stay organised. If you want a clean, streamlined effect, match cabinetry to walls (as in this photo) – or for something more dramatic, try contrasting dark timber shelving on white walls.
I visited a family recently and had just installed a huge wall of built-in cabinetry in their living area and had even included pull-out toy bins for the younger kids and specially designated school bag cupboards for the older children – what a fabulous way to keep a big family house tidy – those bulky schoolbags strewn across the floor can drive one nuts!
