Hallway Storage Ideas
By Displaysense's Lucy Eagland
A hallway is the first thing you (and any guests) see when you enter the home and should welcome you but it can sometimes become a source of stress, especially when shoes and coats end up strewn all over the place. Take control of your hallway and create a sanctuary you will be proud to show off to visitors.
These storage ideas will help you organise and store all the things you need and with everything in its place, it may even save you time when you are rushing to head out of the door.
2. Coat storage
Coats are a clothing essential and depending on the time of year, they can be quite bulky. They also sometimes get dropped by the door, balanced over the bannister or flung over the nearest piece of furniture. Keep coats in check with these space saving coat storage ideas.
When the wet weather hits, where to put your umbrella can become a tricky question. Placing them on hard floors can become dangerous as pooling water can cause a slip hazard and when placed on carpet or wooden floors, wet umbrellas can cause water damage. When they are tucked away in a drawer or cupboard, umbrellas can get forgotten about and frustratingly, it usually means you can’t find one when the rain strikes.
Umbrella stands come in various sizes and some can even accommodate both compact and tall golf umbrellas. For discreet and space saving storage, you can purchase umbrella stands that are designed to fit into tight corners so their impact of the room is minimal. You will always want to look for umbrella holders that feature an in-built drip tray collect any water and to aid the drying process, an open design will allow air to flow throughout.
4. Small item storage
There will always be items, such as keys and other accessories, that don’t have an obvious home and they can have a tendency to go wandering, usually when you are in a rush! Contain them inside storage boxes and baskets so you can just grab and go before leaving for the day.
No matter how much space you have, you can bring back order to your hallway with some simple storage solutions. Don’t forget to tag @Displaysense in your hallway makeover.
