Hallways are often under-utilized spaces, but they have a lot of potential. One way to put your hallway to work is to use it for storage, whether that means hanging a couple of wall hooks or designing a whole new built-in shelving system...
- Combination storage: Jacob and Laurie's hallway combines open bookshelves with a bench (not shown above) and a cabinet at the end of the hall. A woven floor basket stores their daughter's toys.
- Built-ins: Before B moved into her home, the back room was an open space. With the help of former roommates, Dave and Matt, she built a removable pressure-fitted wall with built-in shelving on each side. On one side, the wall creates a hallway to the back porch. On the other side, it provides storage and privacy for a third bedroom.
- Hooks: Alex's loft makes use of a classic, simple solution: wall hooks. The Eames Hang It All is a colorful, multi-purpose piece.
- Freestanding wardrobe: Christy and John use an antique cabinet to hide their shoes and coats.
- Open cubbies: Ronnie , Viktoria, and their two teenagers each have a separate cubby for their coats, bags, and shoes.
