How to organise your hallway

5 images

Constantly clambering over clutter? Sort it out for good with these handy tips for a smart and practical hallway. Even the smallest solutions such as coat hooks and wall-hung shelving units will make a huge amount ofdifference to your hallway – the main aim is to keep clutter off the ground.

Console tables provide a great opportunity for adding decorative flair with pictures, ornaments and flowers, but also as a place to store items. Look for a narrow but wide design that has drawers, racks, shelves or even a pull-out desk so it can double up as a temporary office space.

Recessed storage is probably best if you’re up for the task – the cavenous space under the stairs is usually ideal for storing items. For easy access, go for pull-out drawers or sliding doors, which will also help keep the look streamlined. You could even build a reading nook or study area under the stairs with built-in shelving to make the space work harder.

Don’t forget that every inch of your hallway counts so using your corners in a clever way will help. Angled furniture, such as a corner shelving unit or storage bench with a seat, is a great way to squeeze in vital storage where space is at a premium.
