For the hallway a shoe cupboard or storage bench may be all you need but what about all that other stuff that tends to amasss in this area? For instance, the hallway may not be the first place you’d think to store kid’s toys but it can save a lot of fuss. There are, no doubt, other items you can think of that you need close to hand as you go in and out of the house. And a traditional cupboard might just be the best solution for you?
However, there are very few cupboards specifically designed for use a in a hallway. The choices below are somewhat limited. You can improvise with any small cupboard though; a small sideboard or console table will also do the job just as well.
