The hallway is often the most under utilized space in the home when it comes to storage. Of course, it’s not the most convenient place to store a lot of stuff but for boots, shoes and bags the hallway is ideal.
This may seem like an obvious statement but where are you storing your shoes now? If not in the hallway they’re probably taking up space that can be better used for some other purpose.
A storage bench, if you have the room, will suit a variety of uses and just as a place to park your bum! A simple shelf will serve as a shoe rack or you could add a couple of baskets and store all manner of stuff that you don’t need ready access to.
