Smart Storage Takes On Kilkenny

We were delighted to be featured on the front page of the Kilkenny Observer this month. Read on to see the full article.

“If you’re struggling to find extra space in your home but need additional storage, why not take a look under the stairs? The open area or cupboard beneath your staircase could be the solution and here at Smart Storage this is the perfect way to do so.

With headquarters located in Newtownmountkennedy, Co. Wicklow, Smart Storage is Ireland’s leading provider of under stairs storage. The innovative company was named All-Star Medium Business 2018 and has grown from strength to strength since its establishment in 2011. With appearances on ‘Dragon’s Den’, ‘Double your House for Half the Money’, and Peter Andre’s ‘60 Minute Makeover’, the brand is instantly recognizable across Ireland.

Smart Storage specializes in discreet home storage solutions. Prompted by the growing ‘shoe crisis’ in their own home, husband and wife team, Paul and Clodagh Jacob, developed the Smart Storage range of under stairs storage solutions. Designed to fit under the main stairwell or attic space, the goal of the product is to maximize storage by installing slide-out drawers. The unit’s fold seamlessly into the wall without having drawer handles obstructing the hallway or room. The story took off when Paul appeared on the 2012 season of ‘Dragons’ Den’ and received an investment from an entrepreneur magnate. 

Today, space is at a premium within homes and Smart Storage aims to alleviate this issue. Of all rooms within the home, the hallway receives the most footfall. The installation of an under stairs storage solution ensures that homeowners step into a clutter and stress-free oasis. The units neatly store the unsightly items which traditionally clutter the hallway such as shoes, school bags, coats, ironing boards, luggage and golf bags. 

The minimalist design of the under stairs storage units integrates seamlessly with the staircase, whilst removing the need for unattractive hangers, storage racks and shelving. Each drawer opens with a ‘push-pop’ mechanism and the handle-free design has a sleek and contemporary finish. Smart Storage units utilise the often inaccessible space at the lower end of the stairs without altering the interior layout or impacting on floor space. 

Each drawer is guaranteed to hold 35kg in weight. The units can be customized to suit your needs with many convenient features including wine holders, shoe rails, pull-out coat rails and shelving. 

All units are made in a dedicated manufacturing facility in Carrick-On-Suir, Co. Tipperary, ensuring the highest quality in production. Smart Storage has teams of approved installers located nationwide and throughout Kilkenny. Each under stairs storage unit is installed in just one day and has a two-year guarantee.”
