How To Organise Your Under Stair Cupboard For The New Year

Understairs Storage Drawers

Around the holiday season, it may seem like more clutter than usual is collecting around your home. Particularly in those easily-ignored areas like under the stairs. Christmas decorations, coats, shoes, and new gifts are common offenders.

But what can we do about the clutter? The start of a new year is the perfect time to clear out old items that we don’t need any more, and to start organising your space.

Having a clear-out is the perfect time to consider fitted furniture that’s designed specifically for your home and the space you have available. With bespoke under-stairs storage like the pieces we make here at Custom Creations, you can maximise the space you have with furniture made just to your taste.

How to Organise Your Under Stair Cupboard

When starting your home organisation, the first thing to do is to get everything out of the space you’re organising so you can see it clearly. Start to sort through items one at a time and decide whether you really need them. Have you used it in the last year? If not, the likelihood is, you won’t in the next.

Once this is done, assess what it is that you want to use the extra space under your stairs for. That will help you later decide what kind of space and fitted furniture you may want. Some common examples of what you can store in bespoke under stairs storage:

  • Coats and shoes
  • Toys or outside sports equipment
  • An office space
  • Bookshelves or display cabinets
  • Pet sleeping space or storage
  • Wine racks

Once you’ve chosen what you want to keep in this space, it’s time to decide if bespoke under stairs furniture is for you. With fitted furniture experts like us, your plans can be made into a reality using every inch of possible space. Some of the elements that could be considered in your design are:

  • Shelves
  • Sliding drawers
  • Cupboards
  • Desks
  • Hanging rails
