A Bed Under the Stairs

The space under your stairs is most often ignored and this a common issue in many households. You often have to bend low to get to this place which is why people don’t like putting stuff there.

As you obviously, don’t need to stand while sleeping, this place fits in correctly for a bed and adds an extra sleeping space to meet your needs. 

Use the Corner as A Personal Bar

Empty space in the corners can be used to fit in a two-level shelf and a table. This makes the space ideal to be used as a personal home bar where you can chill, make a nice drink and spend some relaxing time after a hard day of work as well as cultivate a new hobby! 

Bring in A Personal Work Table

As the empty place under the stairs or in the corners inside your home is usually less frequently accessed, you can place a small computer table there and use it as a personal work place. This will be an ideal space to work and, as many people are working from home these days, the place under your stairs will be an apt space where you the level of disturbance will be low hence, allowing you to work efficiently.
