Slot in under the stairsIn this home, an area below the staircase provides a work space, with places for paperwork built in alongside the desk. It’s a strategy that helps make use of every centimetre. If you need more space than this for paperwork, make room below even the lowest part of the stairs; a mix of pull-out drawers and cupboards can be built to suit. In an open-plan design like this one, having a clear-desk policy will pay dividends. If you’re not neat, a sliding door in a space like this might be a good call.
Find your niche environmentIf you can’t devote a whole room to your child’s study area, then seek out a small niche in the corner of an under-used space in your home.With thought, it’s often possible to create a desk area under the stairs. The trick is to consider the design carefully and work with the shapes you have available. Ensure you include plenty of storage that can be closed up to keep clutter under control. You could also consider ideas such as sliding desk tops that expand to meet your needs, and can be pushed back out of the way when not in use.Discover 10 clever uses for the space under the stairs
