A minimalist family hallway

Keeping a small hall calm and tidy when you have kids can be a BIG challenge. Check out how to organize a family-friendly, functional space and stay true to your minimalist soul.
Looking for smart storage solutions for your small hallway? IKEA offers a wide range of hallway furniture such as MACKAPÄR shoe cabinet with storage compartments and space-saving sliding doors.
In this hallway we use all the walls to maximise function. You’ve got closed storage for things you want to hide and an easy to reach open unit for stuff you want to show off (don’t worry, we show you how to make open storage look tidy). A smart shoe storage cabinet doubles as seating for the adults.
Need more space in a small hallway? IKEA has a lot of smart storage solutions! Add minimalist boxes with lids such as KUGGIS to an open storage unit to get a de-cluttered look. Keep shoes in the MACKAPÄR shoe cabinet with space-saving sliding doors.
For the little ones, help them help themselves with racks they can reach. For heavier things higher up a parent can help. Keep the dirt out with a big dirt-resistant door mat (we sewed four together to make a giant one). When the kids’ side gets too messy, just close the curtain and ta-da — instant order.
Looking for smart hallway solutions for the kids? IKEA has a lot of hallway furniture just for them. Hang our white clothes rack LURT with six knobs at child height. All knobs from the IKEA Kitchen range fit!
Free up space in a small hallway with hallway furniture from IKEA! IKEA offers a wide range of hallway furniture such as ELVARLI open storage unit. Add several boxes with lids and store away stuff you don’t use for a minimalist look.
How do you keep open storage looking tidy? Smart selection! Keep stuff you use every day where you can see it. Drawers and storage boxes with lids provide flexibility and keep your hall looking ordered. Trays and baskets make it easy to find what you’re looking for. In a hurry? Put beauty essentials in a cutlery stand by the mirror for a quick fix. Attach a swivel hook next to the door for guests to hang their coats.
Keep your footwear inside a cabinet with space-saving sliding doors. Then you’ll also have a welcoming place where you can sit down and take off your shoes. The shelves can be mounted flat or angled, so you can adapt their depth. Display your personal photos on a pegboard and add a container and shelf to store things like sunglasses and keys.
Maximise your small hallway using space-saving hallway furniture with double functions! IKEA offers a wide range for storing your stuff, such as MACKAPÄR bench in white with storage compartments for shoes that you also can sit on.
Floor plan
5,6 m2
Here’s the floor plan of our small hallway. It is only 5.6 square metres but we made the most of the available space and improved functionality by using the walls.
