Mixing open and closed storage

Open storage, like clothes rails, means it’s easier to see and get at your stuff, while closed storage, like drawers, is perfect for small things you want to keep tidy or anything you want to hide away.

Hidden behind a curtain

When you don’t need to see the kids’ part of your hallway, you can just close the curtain and ta-da – instant order.

Tidy boxes

Keeping things tidy and organised is easy with storage boxes with lids.

Organised drawers

You can keep your smaller stuff sorted out and easy to find by using boxes or trays with compartments inside your drawers.

Make your own wardrobe

You can create your own open wardrobe that suits your space with the ELVARLI system. There are clothes rails, shelves and drawers that you can attach to posts, like here, or to side units and sections.

A multifunctional mirror

With a large mirror you can check your outfit before you leave home and make your hallway look brighter and bigger.

Shoe storage and a seat

Sliding doors don’t stick out when they’re open, so they’re ideal when you don’t have much space. And with a MACKAPÄR bench with storage, you also get a place to sit when you’re putting on your shoes.
