Under Stair Storage Solution

When building the house I drywalled under the stairs leaving 2 large open areas for storage. After about a year of staring at the kinds of stuff collecting under there, I built in these cabinets. The shorter space to the right was to get 2 large storage drawers too, but the dog has homesteaded this space.
Anyway, there is plenty of room and Mama is happy to have more organized storage.
44”wx 84”h 2-vertical pantries and 4 drawers. KnottyAlder w/ birch bead board panels pick up the beading accents used on the interior trim and a few other cabinets in the house.

Great work on making available space more efficient storage. The picture might not do justice, is the colour of this new cabinet more or less the same with the staircase railing, treads & moldings?

I like the handrail of your staircase. Did you make/install it by yourself? How the steel bracket that holds the rail is attached to the wall (drywall? or brick?). Wanted to know coz I’m still in search of that type of bracket for my staircase. Thanks.

Railing & trim are Knotty Alder with Minwan Golden Pecan stain to enhance the grain.
I made the handrails. Alder is 1 1/4” thick by 3 1/4 ” tall with 1/4” round-over on the edges. It is attached with standard handrail brackets(oil rubbbed bronze finish) from Lowes into the wall studs. The brackets space the rail from the wall perfectly.

Excellent job. It’s awsome how other cabinets open up when you can use these new ones to store their products. Excellet place for the dog too….....to get it off your couch or bed.
