Step this Way: Stair Storage – LivingMini®
Now, we all know about utilizing shelves under the stairs – this is a no brainer. But “stairs as drawers” and “stairs as bookshelves”?
Granted the bookshelves could make you a little dizzy climbing up and down those stairs, but the drawers are tres cool!
An average stair is 4 feet wide, the “riser” is about 7 inches, and the depth is about 7-8 inches. There is a formula for calculating the number of steps one should have for a particular height — 8 foot, 10 foot, etc.
Most staircases have at least 10 stairs, which means 8 drawers – just think of all the treasure you could hide in there…like:
- · Seasonal clothes
- · Kid’s toys
- · Pet supplies
- · Stationery
- · Wrapping supplies
- · Extra toiletries / cosmetics
- · DVDs & CDs
- · Extension cords & light bulbs
- · Sewing kit
- · Table linens
I’m sold! Of course, I don’t have a staircase in my house. Hey wait, in 3 weeks, I won’t even have a house anymore!
Doesn’t matter – I’m filing this notion away for safe keeping: Stairs = ripe storage space!
