Nice article. Your hallway/entrance speaks volumes of course... about you, your family, how you run your life & echoes your taste (from its furnishings, ornaments and wall colour). It also spells 'welcome'... or not!

We had draws fitted into the side of our stairs last year, keeping a tall boy at the end for coats / steam mop and the vacuum.
Some of the draws have shoe racks fitted and I can honestly say, they are probably the best thing we've had done to the house. I was a bit dubious at first that they would be gimmicky, but so much more useful space vs trying to haul stuff out of the back of the cupboard.

We went for these shoe boxes with low hooks for the children’s coats. We have two boxes each so all shoes are off the floor and each child is responsible for their own boxes. They have worked a treat and even store the scarves, hats and gloves so there is definitely less clutter. You can’t see from this picture but we have more hanging space on the opposite wall for longer coats.
