What sort of welcome do you want to give your friends and family? A warm and welcoming one is our guess, and of all of the rooms in your home, the hall plays a special role in creating that first and lasting impression, so it is important to get it right.
No-one really wants to be greeted by a mess of shoes, umbrellas, coats and other outdoor items cluttering up and obsuring the hallway. Instead, treat yourself and your guests to a tidy, ordered and calm welcome by adding some hallway units storage to make your hallway much more than just a connecting space between the outside world and your living room. There's plenty of inspiration for you to transform your entrance hall into a desirable and welcoming space in its own right.
Set the tone with beautiful hall furniture
What are the essential elements of a tidy and organised hallway? Well, there are three key areas to consider:
Probably the most important but least appreciated things you can do to bring an almost instant sense of order and calm to your hall is to add some shoe storage. Getting those smelly trainers, old wellies and any number of work and casual shoes out of sight and into an oak shoe cabinet can be one of the best things you can do. From disorganised pigsty to beautiful oasis of calm in no time at all!
Often when you come back home your first thought is to get all of those annoying items (car or house keys, wallets, handbags and phones) dumped as quickly as possible so you can relocate yourself in the living room in front of the TV, safe in the knowledge that you'll be able to relocate those important items quickly and easily the next time you are rushing out again. That's where good hallway console table comes into its own, and we've a great selection to choose from.
One of the oldest tricks in the books when it comes to giving the impression of space is to add a mirror - it instantly brings a feeling of light and space to virtually any hall or entrance. Add to that a well placed wooden coat rack and you've got that neat hall that you and your guests deserve!
