Maximizing Hallway Storage – Functional Furniture

The hallways in your home don’t have to be a barren space, no matter if they are large or small. Embrace this space and make the most of it! Simple tricks can give you a lot of extra storage in an otherwise half-used space. There are several different pieces of furniture that are perfect for maximizing storage in a small space! 

Your entry hallway is the first space seen when someone enters your home.If you don’t have a large entry space or foyer, adding a slim console table can add storage to the space, while keeping your odds and ends out of sight. Choosing a console table with shelves or drawers allows you to showcase some of your favourite decorative items, while giving you a spot to store keys, sunglasses, gloves, dog leashes, and more!

If your space allows for it, place a chic coat rack in an unused corner to hold your most-used coats and your guests’ coats. Choosing one with a lot of pegs and storage at the base keeps things neat-and-tidy and easy to maintain.
