Done in a day: create flow for all in your hallway

Our dear hallway- a daily launch pad with the thankless task of helping everyone to pass quickly. With easy fixes, see how you can opitimize flow in time for the springtime surge in traffic.

A system that grows with the family

With children, what to keep in and out of reach changes over time. A pegboard wall not only allows you to organize coming-and-going necessities – but adjust them to everyone’s current height.

Easy sorting for quick getaways

When things (and people) of all sizes share the same space, keep decisions easy. Like fitting a diagonal towel rack that holds everything from umbrellas to kites in place, and a crate to swallow toys fast (and can be rolled away for playtime).

Everybody’s and your own

Specific storage is good in some areas, but can be a time thief elsewhere. Go for a clothes rack that’s everybody’s domain while also including personal compartments to complement individual needs.

With a bottleneck like the hallway, it’s all about making it simple to pass quick. Aim at having things easy to see and reach when leaving, clear choices upon return, and room for different types of storage. Then you’re good to go.

The all-weather hall

If rain is a recurring theme where you live, your hallway can assist you. Hang weather accessories close and allow clothes to hang as freely as possible for quick drying.

Prepared for wet conditions

For extra wall protection – especially if you often deal with wet items – use a water-resistant wall panel for the most exposed areas. Stylish, easy to fasten and ready for all weathers.
