Here at, we pride ourselves on providing handcrafted real wood furniture that will not only brighten up your home, but also help you solve various decorating dilemmas. One common problem many people encounter is that of a small entrance hallway. Clutter quickly piles up in such a confined space – from discarded shoes to unopened mail, car keys, coats, hats, umbrellas, takeaway leaflets and various other items that just end up getting in the way.

So, how do you keep a small hallway clear, while simultaneously boosting the storage potential of such an enclosed space? Well, quite easily, as it turns out. Simply try one or two of our highly effective small hallway storage ideas below, and your disorganised entranceway will soon be a thing of the past.

Small hallway furniture ideas

1. Maximise your space with a sophisticated storage unit

Storage units are undeniably one of the best ways to maximise space in any room, and they will make a great addition to your hallway. Our Tetbury white storage unit comes with nine rattan drawers, perfect for storing those everyday essentials you always need to grab on your way out the door.

Alternatively, you could opt instead for a small hallway bench with storage. Our Tetbury benches come in a variety of different colours and include a comfortable cushion top and rattan storage baskets. Not only are they good for storing your hats and gloves neatly out of sight, but you can also sit on them to put your shoes on. Matching hanging shelves are available for added wall space.

2. Opt for a chic hallway coat rack combo

Winter coats can be thick and bulky and take up a lot of room in a cupboard or drawers. Keeping them on a hallway coat rack unit ensures they are within easy reach, but don’t take up too much room. Our Tetbury coat racks are an ideal option for entranceways, as they also come with natural wicker storage baskets.

These charmingly rustic baskets provide extra room for storing must-haves such as winter gloves, slippers, keys and so much more. And to maximise your storage space even further, you could pair your coat rack with a matching storage bench to style up your small space while minimising clutter.

3. Console tables: a hallway must-have

To add a simple touch of elegance to your small hallway, why not make a modern hallway console table your focal point? Small but stylish, these tables can store all of your smaller essentials safely. They can also be exquisitely decorated to suit your tastes, with decorative plant pots, family photos, ornaments, or just a pretty table runner and a dish of fragrant potpourri.

Our Florence range offers a number of sophisticated console tables in various colours, styles and sizes. Alternatively, our French-inspired Juliette white console table is particularly classy, with its antique-effect handles and hand-carved detailing.

4. A small hall bookcase for avid readers

If you’re a book lover then you’re probably always looking for some extra storage space for your beloved paperbacks. If you’re short on space elsewhere in your home, why not show them off to great effect in your hallway?

Our Victorian-inspired Florence bookcases come in four different hues, to blend seamlessly with any decor, and are small and practical enough to fit into a narrow hallway. They also come with adjustable shelving to make displaying your prized volumes even easier.

5. Sideboards that save on space

Small and gracious, these sideboards come in different forms (corner or standard, with cupboards or basket drawers) as well as a variety of colours, so you can choose the one that suits your taste and decor best.

We hope these small hallway furniture ideas will help to solve your storage issues and that they’ve proven a lack of space doesn’t have to be a set-back. In fact, a tiny hallway can be both perfectly practical and stylish to boot.
