How This TikToker Created Storage in Her Less-than-11-Square-Foot Entryway
Your entryway can make or break your mood at the end of a long day. Ideally, the space is beautiful and useful, a peaceful way to welcome yourself home. But what do you do when your entry is the size of a postage stamp and there’s nowhere to hang your coat, let alone drop your shoes?
At first glance, the entry hallway of London-based TikToker Maddie Borge looks like it couldn’t be used for more than just passing through. The 1-square-meter, or roughly 11-square-foot space, is actually even tighter than it appears because of the clearance needed to open the door.

While Borge felt lucky to find an apartment in the competitive London rental market, she knew she needed to research small-space living to make the most of her home. She spent hours reading about Japanese organization systems and fell in love with their innovative solutions for small spaces. Borge applied what she learned to her entryway in this TikTok, part of her popular small living series, and found these three space-saving solutions.
With three simple purchases and no DIY-ing required, Borge transformed a space that seemed unusable into a fully functional entry — not just for her partner and herself, but also for guests. And for less than $100, you can recreate the look, too.
Borge and her partner are moving into a new space, so follow @macerlyofficial for plenty of new organizing wins like this one.
