Let's face it: our apartment's entrance hall (in the building's common space) isn't going to be packed with storage like the built-in bench above. We can't have furniture in our apartment's common spaces because it hinders hallway cleaning for the maintenance man. So, we're thinking, what if we installed a wall-mounted bench in the hall right outside our door? With some hooks and a shelf above, the arrangement would give our small apartment an "entry" without getting in the way of a mop or vacuum.

This industrial-grade wall-mount bench by Borroughs Shelving has a look we like. We wonder about replicating it in wood...

Do you keep anything outside of your apartment's door, in the common space of the building? It's always a point of contention in our building, but we're thinking this just might be a way around it.
