What Houzz contributors are saying:
Let it slideIf your hallway is narrow, it makes sense to go for a space-saving cupboard door. A bifold design, which opens like a concertina, will protrude less than a hinged model, but even less obtrusive is a sliding door like this one by Macdonald Wright Architects.The wide door glides back to give access to the slim but ample cupboard space without blocking the way for those who want to walk past.Tell us…Which of these hallway cupboards is your favourite?

Favour floor-to-ceiling cupboards“Suitable storage is going to be different for every home, as we all have a different size and shape of hallway that needs to accommodate varying habits and hobbies,” Hannah says. “Many of us struggle with narrow hallways, but it’s surprising how even a very slim, built-in, floor-to-ceiling cupboard can transform your entrance by providing space to put everything away, so it doesn’t all end up in a muddy heap on the floor!” she says.Anatoly agrees and recommends, “If possible, use floor-to-ceiling fitted wardrobes for overcoats and shoes.” This will also help to keep your hallway looking streamlined.
