5. Turn your entrance hall into organisation central
If your hallway is roomy enough, use it to house useful extra storage furniture. As everyone usually sheds personal possessions – school bags, work bags, coats, keys and shoes – the minute they walk through the door, having extra storage capacity will help you stay on top of the clutter.
Think about installing a large basket for discarded shoes, a sideboard with deep shelves for school bags and briefcases, a hallway table with baskets and bowels for keys and travel cards, or a bookcase for magazines, letters and other bits and pieces. A handy coat stand is another practical idea if space allows, and rotating winter and summer coats will help you keep the area relatively streamlined.
