Entry Hall Products

After a long day at work or school, it's easy to walk in the front door, drop everything and head for the living room (or kitchen). Because it's the first stop, the hall can become rather cluttered without effective storage furniture and products to keep this catch-all space tidy - particularly in our often inclement British climate, when our entrance has not only shoes and bags but boots, coats, umbrellas and hats to contend with. With some well-placed coat stands, shoe storage, benches and key hooks, you can ensure there's a place for everything - provided the rest of the household follows the system!

Hooks, hooks and hooks.

Having a place to hang bags, coats, umbrellas and keys is one of the easiest ways to keep things out of the way (and to dry, if necessary). Hooks don't take up much room and are easier to install than furniture, so you can afford to be liberal. You could even supplement wall-mounted hooks with attractive freestanding designs such as a coat rack so there's ample space for not only family but guests, too.

Shoe storage - and damage control.

One of the easiest ways to ruin a tidy home is to have wet, muddy shoes traipsing through the house. A door mat outside the front door should catch some of the dirt before it makes its way in, but having another dirt-proof rug inside the hall will help to keep a wooden floor or carpet clean. To encourage a "no shoes" rule in your home, finding a convenient place near the entrance for a shoe rack or shoe cabinet is a good way to prompt family and guests to remove theirs when they walk in the door.

A multi-tasking hall bench.

Placing a bench near the front door can serve multiple purposes - not only would it come in handy for putting on shoes, but a bench with built-in storage can make this an ideal place to store shoes and thus keep the hall tidy.

Designated hallway storage cabinets.

To encourage a system and avoid confusion, consider assigning a storage spot for each family member. A console table or wall-mounted shelving with baskets and coat hooks are good space-saving options; have a surface to place bowls for keys, gloves, sunglasses and other smaller accessories will also go a long way to keeping essentials both accessible and tidy.

decorations for a homely touch.

The hall is the first glimpse anyone will get of the interior of your home, so why not make it cozy and welcoming by adding some personal touches. Welcome mats are a great way to immediately bring in a touch of personality, and hall mirrors can add style while simultaneously making the area feel larger. Decorating a console table with flowers, candles and picture frames can bring some warmth and additional decor to the hall.
