Lad creates genius staircase storage for girlfriend after she moaned about her ‘tiny hallway’.

IT'S a frustrating fact of life that - despite your best efforts - the entrance of your home is often THE most cluttered part of the house.

Well rather than littering your hall with the shoes and coats you decided not to wear before heading out, one savvy couple have come up a genius way of turning your stairs into the ideal storage space.

Posting photos of her new staircase storage on the Facebook group Hinch Army House Decorating Inspiration, Jade Yule wrote: "I'm always moaning about having no storage in my tiny hallway and my boyfriend made me this."

Although Jade's grey carpeted stairs look the same as they always did when you enter the home, the second and third step now have hidden storage space underneath.

Explaining to Fabulous Digital how he created the extra storage, Jade's boyfriend Dominic Helliwell - who runs Woodbuilt Joiner, Home Improvement & Locksmith Services - started by taking apart the carpet.

He said: "I carefully the carpet at the joints with a Stanley knife, then marked the stairs and cut them with a handsaw and multi tool."

After this, Dominic built a frame to add strength to where the stairs had been taken apart and then added gas pistons so the hatch can stay open for easy access.

Once this was completed, Dominic then refitted the carpet with staples to achieve a seamless finish.

Unsurprisingly, other members of the group were suitably impressed with the couple's storage solution.

One replied: "OMG that's great - I need that to store kids shoes."

Another added: "I so need this! Our hallway is so tiny and that would work fab for shoes - what a clever boyfriend."

Meanwhile, a third joked: "If it was big enough, you could play Hide & Seek and no one would have a clue you were there!"

For more home improvement stories, this savvy woman transformed her dingy stairs using bargain £40 wallpaper she bought on eBay.

And this mum created a Mrs Hinch-inspired kitchen using £28 Amazon sticky wrap after she was quoted £7k for a renovation.

Plus this Mrs Hinch fan shared incredible before-and-after photos of her cluttered bedroom following an anxiety spell.
