Small Hallway Ideas: Tips To Maximise Your Space

It’s time to clear the clutter, invest in some small hallway storage solutions and increase the sense of space with these simple tricks, tips and hacks.

The hallway is often one of the most neglected areas in your home. It becomes a dumping ground for coats, shoes, post, keys and all other general items. But, as it’s the first room you, and your guests, see upon entering the house, it’s an area worth investing some time and thought, no matter how little space you’ve got to work with. Follow our top tips below, and we promise your hallway will become an entrance to behold.

TIP #1: MIRRORS

Mirrors can work wonders in a small space if placed in the correct spot – they can create light, space and character. They also reflect both natural and artifical light to amplify a sense of space and are great for topping up your lippy on your way out.

Storage baskets and boxes are a great way to add some style and order to your space. Tuck them underneath your console table for added storage for your scarves, gloves, umbrella and other accessories. They’re also great for hiding wires behind.
