Bespoke Joinery and Handmade Furniture in Maidstone | 4 Ways to Make the Most of Under-Stairs Space

Thinking of maximising your under-stairs space? Looking for extra storage possibilities in your home? ARG Joinery is here to help. Founded in 2013 and based in Sittingbourne, our team of professional joiners and kitchen fitters has over 50 years of combined experience. Fully trained and insured, we provide handmade furniture, made-to-measure wardrobes, handmade kitchens and other bespoke joinery services for clients in Maidstone, Sittingbourne and the nearby areas.

We welcome commissions from domestic customers and main contractors.

An underused feature in most hallways in the UK, most under-stairs cupboards contain little more than a fuse box and cleaning supplies.

With some creativity and the expertise of a master joiner, homeowners across Maidstone can transform this often-neglected nook into a key feature of their house.

Here are 4 ideas for making the most of your under-stairs space:


Integrated Drawer Units

For a subtle storage solution, opt for a hidden series of dovetailed oak drawers. Perfect for shoes, hats, toys and schoolbags, our team can skilfully replicate any original panelling for an externally seamless look. We use the highest specification drawer runners, ensuring your new drawers are durable and run smoothly. A convenient option, integrated drawers can unlock storage space in unexpected places.

Dry Pantry

An underrated idea for houses in Maidstone, your under-stairs area is ideal for stocking tea, pasta and other dry goods. Our joiners can measure, design, craft and install shelving and other handmade furniture for any part of your property. 

If your kitchen is next to your hallway, why not save space by adding a pantry under the stairs? Our kitchen fitters can also deliver handmade kitchens for local clients.


A real statement piece, we can convert the side of your staircase into a set of striking display shelves. Our bespoke joinery specialists can offer a range of different designs, from stained-oak library shelving to painted geometric shelves.

As with our made-to-measure wardrobes, each project is tailor-made for the customer, using a combination of modern and traditional methods.

Bench Seating

For a larger home, why not consider bench seating? Popular amongst our Maidstone clientele, we can transform your under-stairs cupboard into a cosy reading nook. Still need storage options? We can install hinged seats that open to reveal a hidden compartment, perfect for shoes and sports equipment.
