When you talk about stair cupboards, you naturally think of the stair cupboards , which are created under the stairs. Here we have shown a number of staircase inspiration examples, which are all very beautifully and practically furnished. Some turn it into a pantry, others a wardrobe or a storage room. Today we want to talk about a different kind of stair cupboard. A stair cupboard, which is not fitted under the stairs, but on the wall above the cupboard. We will of course also show you some very nice inspiration examples!
The wall near a staircase is often bare. There are people who decorate it nicely with, for example, frames or wallpaper, but you could also use it practically, by creating a cupboard. You can do it easily, for example by hanging open wall cupboards on the wall above the stairs. And if you had the space for it, you would also build a very large wall cupboard. This is an especially good idea if you have a large open staircase that makes the wall cabinet visible from the hall, living room or kitchen.
The best thing is to have a custom cabinet made by the stairs. In this way you can make full and optimal use of the wall, which often contains difficult corners on a staircase. You can use the large wall cupboard in different ways. For example, a large bookcase is very popular, full of beautiful and colorful books. This is ideal if you are a true book lover and have a large book collection. Your own library by the stairs!
Bookcase or showcase
Don’t have that many books? Then you can also use the wall cupboard as a kind of showcase, which you fill with a mix of different beautiful things. Stuff that you are proud of and that should be seen. These can be beautiful books, but also small collections, plants, table lamps, candlesticks, frames, ceramics, you name it. It can be anything, and that’s what makes it so much fun. Your cupboard on the wall above the stairs can become the eye-catcher in the house!
