'Hide the appliances behind a folding door.' Keep cleaning materials, chopping boards and spices to hand with some custom-made splashback storage. All you need is 15cm at the back of the work surface to create super-slim storage for these everyday essentials.

Instead, install a shelf on the wall behind the bed that can be used for bedtime reading material and an alarm clock. You can't compromise on the size of your bed, but you can try to make it work harder. Underbed boxes or beds with built-in drawers or shelves utilise the redundant area underneath. Flip-up beds also ensure space is put to good use. Remember, too, that low-level beds are less visually dominating than lofty princess-and-the-pea style ones.

Fitting a tailor-made shelving unit under the stairs will allow you to make the most of the space. You will be able to display all your best photos, ornaments, CDs and books that might otherwise be boxed away - and to show off your favourite items, you could even fit some strategically placed backlights. If you have too many books you could make a miniature library by fitting some shelves under the stairs. Just add an armchair, reading lamp and coffee table, and you're all set for some quality 'me' time.

Despite being a major traffic thoroughfare, when it comes to design and decoration, staircases are one of the most frequently overlooked areas of a home,' says Hugo Tugman, architectural expert from Architect Your Home. 'As it's often the first thing people see when they walk through your front door, your staircase's visual impact can reflect upon the entire property.'

Knocking two rooms into one can provide a multifunctional area that will instantly feel bigger. You can then define zones with flooring or furniture. And bringing in more light wherever possible will also open up a room.

You can also use landings or even half landings (where stairs turn) to house a condensed work station or mini library,' says architect Mark Dyson. A compact office can be hidden in a cupboard, so it's instantly tidied away at the end of the day. A window ledge can be widened to create a cosy seat. Spiral stairs can be a great space saver, as can alternate-tread ones that allow staircases to rise at a steeper angle.

The simplest type of staircase - a straight staircase supported at the top against a wall - is the easiest to open up because the timbers under the stair serve only to support the paneling. A straight staircase between two side walls (with access to the space from an adjoining room) is the most difficult to open up as both walls are likely to be load bearing. In this situation you need professional advice and help, and perhaps a building permit, before you can remove the walls.

However it can also be expensive so you may want to think about using it in specific areas. If you are going to be using carpet on your stairs you may be more interested in saving money by building the rest of the staircase out of another type of wood and save the oak for trim and railings.

This means they only have one side that looks 'open' and many people prefer this style. Not only do these types of stairs look good they also create the impression of more space, so they can work well in small houses.
Gabriella Cabrera Staircase Understairs, 2018-10-11 18:33:09. If you are living in a small home, one of the things you need to consider very carefully is where you can economize on space. One of the things that tends to come up time after time is the amount of space a traditional staircase takes - and the amount of space underneath the stairs that often tends to get wasted in many homes. However, it doesn't have to be like that: you really can do something about changing your traditional staircase for one of the many space saving staircases now available on the market - some of them retailing at quite economical prices. Why is it that the traditional staircase tends to take up so much space, though?
