No, no, we haven’t given up talking Interiors in favor of scary stories – we’re here to clean up the mess you doubtlessly have brewing beneath your stairs and turn it into a veritable storage-ready delight.
First things first – can you actually access the space? If the answer is no, stop reading and go talk to a contractor or architect. More often than not, it’s a simple process to get in there and get going.
Next up – the space itself – what the heck can you do with it? Of course there are the obvious suggestions, store Christmas lights, kitchen odds and ends, blah, blah, blah. But why do that when you can install a wet bar? For real. The hip scotch swilling days of the 1940s and 1950s are in my friend, and you’ll be riding the wave with your very own wet bar!
Not your style? Than what about the walk in closet you’ve always wanted,
filled with a fashionable new wardrobe purchased at wholesale clothing prices. Or perhaps a playroom for your child, or the room you’ve always threatened to allot your household pet? With a little planning and an open mind, you’ll have the space you never even knew you wanted!
