Space Saving Solutions: Under the Staircase Storage

Accuride Under the Stairs Drawer Slides Maximizing Space

  • The Micro-living movement has been gaining a mainstream following throughout North America. More companies are turning to Accuride to build reliable storage options.
  • The Touchwood Designs’ under-staircase solution depends on Accuride slides to maximize storage space.
  • Accuride has various slide options to fit any storage project needs.

Micro living has been gaining a mainstream following throughout North America lately. Though it’s been the European norm for ages, many North Americans are making the choice to sacrifice the comfort of a large living space. Whatever the reason, micro-living or living in small spaces doesn’t mean you have to be limited when it comes to your storage space. Micro-living simply requires innovative use of space—and it doesn’t get much more innovative than under-stair storage.

The brilliance of Touchwood Designs’ under-staircase solution was creating a functional storage space. A pair of full extension drawer slides is mounted at the base of the unit and a single slide is mounted at the top to stabilize and guide the movement of the pullout units. These unique storage drawers can also have enhanced features such as Touch Release (held closed until the front is pressed open) and Self-Close (closes drawers and keeps them closed).

Accuride has a number of recommended movement solutions for just these kinds of applications. Take our newly enhanced 3800 slide family for example. The addition of longer ball retainers and added ball bearings make these slides smoother and more resilient than before. Also, a face-frame mounting hole has been added to make installation easier. Perfect for your next staircase storage space project.


3832E full extension slides are suitable for drawers and pull-out shelves enhanced for better strength and more reliable movement.


What about wider drawer applications to accommodate dry goods and cookware? Accuride has an answer for that, too—the 7957 Full Extension Slide. It’s a great heavy-duty alternative that can handle drawers up to 42” wide in a .75” cross-section slide space and has a load rating of 350 lbs.
