Storage under the stairs

Stash It Under the Stairs

The big idea: Camouflage everyday storage by hiding it in an unusual spot, as with this pullout wine cubby located under a staircase landing. Positioning the drawer next to the front door makes efficient use of what's often wasted space. For these owners, grabbing a last-minute hostess gift has never been easier.

Notice the details: The beaded-board front panel of this cabinet is identical to the rest of the wall,–the only hint of a secret wine cellar is a single bin pull.

Find it: Reproduction bin pulls, prices vary, from Historic Houseparts; 888/558-2329 or
