UN­DER THE STAIRS

Homes+ (Australia) - - STYLE & DECORATE -

Space un­der­neath stairs is usu­ally tricky due to the nar­row width, a slop­ing ceil­ing and lim­ited ac­cess, but you don’t have to leave it as a spare bed­room for Harry Pot­ter! In­stead, why not do what this fam­ily did and turn it into a great hide­away study area?

With a clever mix of desk space and shelv­ing, this un­wanted un­der-stairs area has been trans­formed into an invit­ing of­fice, com­plete with am­ple stor­age. One of the tricks of this of­fice is in the size of the stools, which means they can eas­ily slide away un­der the built-in desk when work is fin­ished. There’s also a prac­ti­cal mix of shelv­ing and draw­ers for all of those of­fice bits and pieces, as well as a set of doors that, when guests ar­rive, can be closed to con­ceal any clutter.
