What Houzz contributors are saying:
Prioritise positionThe key to good storage is to plan its location carefully, say our experts. “Anything that comes into the house needs to have a dedicated home, where it should always be put back when not in use,” Caroline Dhaouadi says. Sophie Aroutcheff agrees and says, “Store things where you use them. For example, if, when the members of your household get home, the first thing they do is drop their shoes and coats in the hallway, think of adding hooks and shoe storage there, rather than hoping people will take them to their rooms.”Caroline adds, “Even bits and bobs from everyday life should have a dedicated space somewhere in the house.”Find a local professional organiser to help you declutter and plan your home storage.
Make a place for everythingWhen you’re designing storage, you have to create it for a specific purpose. Why? That way it’ll get used properly – possibly by even the messiest members of the family. In this hallway, there’s room for a family’s coats, shoes, gloves, hats and, er, CDs – all hidden neatly away behind cupboard doors.Find wall organisers in the Houzz Shop
Slim down your storageThere are a lot of things we need to store in our hallways, from hats and shoes to brollies and bags. Carefully planned, slim storage can house myriad items surprisingly well, all cunningly concealed behind unobtrusive doors, as here.When thinking about small hallway ideas, if fitting a cupboard isn’t possible, consider creating your own ‘wonder wall’, with hooks for coats, racks for shoes and tubs for scarves and gloves.Want to design something similar?
