What Houzz contributors are saying:
Choose sliding doorsIf you have a long, narrow hallway and don’t want to visually clutter the space with coat hooks and shoe racks, a slim wall cupboard like this one is a neat way of sneaking in some storage while keeping the space feeling calm. Whether you carve a little bit of space from the hallway itself or borrow from the room next door to create your cupboard, what you’ll lose in floorspace you’ll more than make up for with vertical storage. Ask a builder or carpenter if this might be a possibility in your home.Need some bespoke storage? Find carpenters and joiners in your area
Mistake 3: Leaving out shoe storageThe rest of a home will stay cleaner if shoes are removed near the door, but fail to plan in a place to put them, and scattered pairs might be the result. This hallway includes a capacious cupboard to avoid the problem. Shoe storage that goes from floor to ceiling like this doesn’t have to be deep, so it needn’t impinge much on even a narrow hallway. Sliding doors are also ideal in tight spaces, or simply leave the shoe storage open and avoid the door question entirely.
