Four ways you can maximise the space in your hall

Four ways you can maximise the space in your hall

The hallway is often an underappreciated and overlooked part of the home

For many of us, hallways become the forgotten space, a dumping ground for shoes and bags at the end of the day. However, this actually means you're wasting a lot of space, and with it, potential storage solutions, as we explain here...

1 Under the stairs

The space under the stairs is normally a favourite place to throw things and then forget about them. However, it need not be. A built-in cupboard with shelving could be a winning solution, helping you keep your clutter out of sight and organised in a neat and tidy manner.

2 Hooks

If you don't already have a coat hook, chances are you'll use your newel post or something similar to act as a glorified stand. Adding coat hooks to your wall could be a good way around this, clearing your stairs. Another idea could be putting up some shelving in the space above your hooks - it's another unutilised space where you can either add some decorative accessories to provide your hall with personality or store some other essentials you could need.

3 Hall tables

If you don't have much room, you could initially dismiss this idea out of hand. However, a small sideboard or table could be a very good move, particularly if you're forever losing your car keys. As well as being a handy place to leave a few essentials, it will also gives you the chance to inject your hallway with some character - you could display some pot plants or alternatively, why not try making your own trinket bowl (we have just the tutorial here)?

4 Mirror, mirror on the wall

If you're hall sometimes seems more like a cave than an actual part of your home, try adding a mirror. They are a great way of creating the optical illusion that your hall is actually bigger than it is, and will also help to make it a brighter room too – win-win!
