Five storage ideas to take you from no space to hallway space

01 April 2017
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.

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.

If you don’t have a hallway

Not every home has an entry hall but you can still create a corner for all your coming and going things in the living room, using furniture that
looks at home there.

If you only have a wall

Even a tiny patch of wall can become a place to kill the clutter. Small organisation 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 only have a corner

If you only have a small corner, go tall and use as much of the ceiling height as you need. A coat rack and a tall cabinet for shoes will make the best use of limited floorspace.
