Is it teething time for your little one?
The hallway can often be a wasted space in the home, used as a through way for those who live there and those who visit. Instead of wasting it though, put it to good use with these five practical ideas:
Book nook
Instead of piling coats and wellies under the stairs why not turn the space into a little book nook. Or go wild and turn the whole hall into a mini library. Alternatively, if it is large enough, put in a seat and use it as your own special relaxing place.
Use it as a 'To do list' reminder
Pop a blackboard on one wall and write your to do list on it. it will be the first thing you see when you walk in the door and the last when you leave. Surely you’ll never forget anything now.
Store your post 
Rather than leaving your post lying all over the kitchen table, put a couple of cubby holes in the hall for each member of the family. This way whatever post comes in the door immediately has somewhere to go.
Show off family pictures
If you are finding your pictures are clogging up space in the living room, turn one wall in the hall into a exhibition of your family. Keep all frames the same to create a dramatic look. It will de-clutter the rest of your home.
If you are running out of space in say your bedroom, utilise the area under the stairs by using it for storage. Shelving or even pull out draws would work well.
