Show off your wine collection

A rather galamorous way to use up the space, your wine cellar does not require a special undersroung storage. Create a customized shelf for all the wine bottles; open or in glass case. You can even install a mini fridge to store other drinks that need chilling.

This TV is ideal for solo viewing or as a secondary TV near the dining area or the living room so that it does not become an overbearing focal point in the room but rather an accessory.

Display racks

Think outside the box

A multi level storage with each step and a study table underneath is a design that has surely come out of a quirky creative mind. Take inspiration, and install your very own designer study and storage area under the stairs.

Study enclosure

The space under the staircase can be used cleverly to accommodate a desk, chair, storage cabinets and racks.
