Many of us live in houses that have an open area underneath the stairs. This often gets used for shoes or bags or maybe, if there is enough height, for hanging coats. The problem with this is that it can rapidly become the dumping ground, particularly for shoes that are taken off when people enter the house and, unless someone keeps an eye on it, it can rapidly begin to look messy.
A simple solution to this problem that still enables you to use this valuable and convenient storage space whilst improving the look of your hall way and stairs is under stair doors. These are angled doors that can be fitted into the space underneath the stairs to effectively box it in. You can also use panels instead of doors but this means you can’t easily access the space.
