Under stairs shelving design ideas

Under stairs shelving design ideas will save space. When urban living became the norm every designer racked their minds to find perfect design ideas for the small living spaces. Some designs were fantastic, some were lousy. One of the marvelous designs ever made was to make the space under the stairs work as storage space as well.
