Putting a kitchen under the stairs is a great idea, for many reasons. If you have the space, or could get rid of your stairs’ skirt, it’s definitely something worth considering. Not only are you making use of potentially wasted space, but also the frame of the stairs alone designates it as an area without the help of walls. It is therefore encouraging of the open plan. Holzrausch designs the kitchen in this example. The governing materials are oak and Corian and boasts a beautiful contemporary look. Wall mounted cabinets that do not rest on the floor or have legs is another way to create the illusion of space. They added some accent lighting under the counter, which has a nice effect. This kitchen has ample space, feels light and is definitely lovely to look at as you make your way down those stairs. For more information about this kitchen, visit .
