Unlock the Hidden Storage Potential Under Your Stairs

As any Harry Potter fan will know, cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive was in fact Harry Potter’s bedroom.

In the film, the cupboard was described as ‘small and dusty, with lots of spiders.’

Which got us thinking – How do we think about our own under the stairs cupboard? Is it a space that we dread to go near?

It may be hard to admit, but many of us do!

So what’s lurking under your stairs cupboard? Are you terrified to open the door in case you are attacked by the vacuum cleaner, a down pour of shoes, a mass of coats or quite possibly something else…?
