Woman sick of ‘wasted’ space under the stairs gets her husband to build secret cupboard & you’d never know it was there – The Sun
A DIY-loving couple looking for extra storage space in their home decided to utilise the hidden room under their stairs, adding a nifty hinged cupboard right beneath their feet.
While some people choose to make the most of under-the-stairs storage with a cupboard on the ground floor, the creative couple chose to do something different, creating a nifty hidden cupboard.
Sharing photos of the project to the Facebook group DIY on a Budget Official, Helen Barnshaw wrote: "So much hidden space under the stairs, that was otherwise wasted until my husband made some extra storage space."
The post went down a storm online gaining over 3,400 likes and 750 comments.
Speaking to Fabulous, Helen explained: "We got fed up with lots of shoes everywhere, especially at the bottom of the stairs, so started to google shoe storage ideas and I saw the idea on the internet.
"I originally looked into a company doing it for me, but my husband is so good at DIY, he was able to do it.
"We were quoted £230 originally, but my husband did it for just under £60."
Helen and her hubby couldn't fit any more under stairs storage because there was already an inbuilt toilet on the ground floor.
There's now plenty of space for the family's shoe and bag collection.
