FIVE STORAGE IDEAS TO TAKE YOU FROM NO SPACE TO HALLWAY SPACE
If you have a small, narrow entryway
Long and narrow, a tiny corner or no hallway at all. Whatever the space, you can still dedicate a spot for coming and going that works for you. Here are a few ideas for getting the most out of a small entryway. Lots of things in a small space quickly add up to make clutter. A low chest of drawers should give you plenty of storage space to clear it away and it can double as a bench. Open shelving gives you a place to put the things you need to see and of course a mirror for those last minute hair and wardrobe checks.
If you have a long, thin hallway
A narrow hallway works best if all the outdoor gear is kept behind close doors. In this case, sliding doors, which don’t steal space when you open them. Look for a wardrobe with a shallow depth, like this one, to save as much floorspace as possible.
Even a tiny patch of wall can become a place to kill the clutter. Small organization tools such as hooks and ledges are a good start. Steal a trick from the kitchen and use a magnetic knife board to hold keys and notes. Add in a mirror and suddenly it’s an important part of the home.
If you don’t have a hallway
If you’re storing your shoes and coats in another room, keep them together and out of sight. In a small space, this fabric wardrobe works well as it feels less bulky than solid furniture. But don’t let it fool you, there’s still plenty of space inside for all your things.
