Hallway storage for practical entrances

20 images

Transform your hall into a welcoming and fit-for-purpose entrance, with our clever hallway storage ideas.

The hallway is the first room your guests will see as they enter your home but a pile of discarded shoes, coats, umbrellas and keys, which always have a habit of accumulating by the front door, can give people the wrong first impression.

Put hallway storage at the forefront of your mind when planning your decorating scheme, especially with a small hallway, and you can create an area that’s both attractive and practical for you and your family to use everyday.

Utilize every nook and cranny! A high shelf rack is a useful spot for coats and scarves and ensures precious floor space is kept clear. If you really want to maximise your hallway, a tailor-made unit with built-in shelves and drawers will fill the available space intelligently, and look great too. Don’t neglect precious understair space that might otherwise be wasted.

Console tables are a great place to allow family belongings to accumulate, with drawers to hide away all those delivery menus and loose change. Opt for a slim design, especially in narrow, corridor-type rooms, to preserve a sense of spaciousness. Wicker baskets placed at the side or underneath are a useful place for hiding away other knick-knacks.
