Useful under-stairs pantry and storage

Brita lives by the sea in the south of Sweden in a house built in 1933. She had always dreamed of having a walk-in pantry. There was a space beneath the staircase that had previously housed a toilet. Brita decided that with the help of Elfa she would convert that space into a practical area for storing dry foods and cleaning stuff.

This is what she did:

After measuring all the angles and corners, Brita made a simple sketch of the space. She recommends carefully measuring every inch to get it right first time round. She wrote a few lines explaining that she wanted to store dry foods and various cleaning items there. She then sent this with her sketch, measurements and some photos of the space to Elfa. They came back with a suggestion that was tweaked a few times until everyone was satisfied that the solution was suitable for the space and the items that Brita wanted to store there.

Why did you choose Elfa?

“Its flexibility and discreet design are the main advantages. Life brings changes which means our needs for storage space keep changing too. Elfa’s shelves and systems let me make whatever adjustments I want and, best of all, I can use what I have without having to buy anything new. I’m really satisfied with Elfa’s shelves, accessories and storage solutions. Their classic design and top quality will definitely stand the test of time.
