    Did you know that the items you keep in your hallway could also save you time in the morning?

    After all, when it comes to the morning, every second counts.

    Keep your keys safe

    Having a designated spot to hang or store your keys will keep you from rummaging through your bag or frantically trying to locate them around your house.

    Mirror mirror

    If you’re after a last minute check before leaving the house, hanging a mirror in your hallway will save you from running back to the bathroom or bedroom.

    Leave yourself a note
    Relying on your morning brain to remember anything important is not the best plan. If there’s something important you must not forget, write yourself a note and stick it to the back of the front door the night before. Alternatively, hang a colourful ribbon on the doorknob to remind yourself before leaving the house in the morning.

    A place for everything …

    While it may seem obvious, getting organised and creating a permanent home for coats and shoes will save you time trying to find a matching pair. When you get home every night, put everything back in its proper place.

    Keep things simple

    A minimal hallway will ease you into the day. Keep your hallway clear of clutter with floor to ceiling shelves and an all white palette. Warm up the look by installing soft lighting behind the shelves.
