I have a teeny tiny hallway in my new house (literally about 1m square) so I'm buying a Georgian linen press from eBay, one with some hanging space and some shelving, to store coats and shoes respectively. It will go in my sitting room, and linen presses don't look too much like wardrobes, so not too bedroomy, and I think it will work well as long as I keep taking non seasonal coats and shoes up to my bedroom, as described in the article!

You could look at linen presses at auctions too. You can then see them beforehand if there is one you like at a local auction house.

I'm not experienced in real life auctions, but I need to start going as I know there's some amazing bargains to be had!
