What Houzz contributors are saying:
Remedy: The answer of course is storage right there at the door. Nobody can can walk past a hook for their bag, some cupboard space for their shoes and a bench for everything else. A carpenter could add something like this, or you could have a go yourself, with some ready-made cabinets and a shelf. A coat of paint and some handles and hooks to complete the job.

Hang your bagI’m always amazed at how many homes don’t have anywhere specific for bags to hang. You’ll never search the house for your handbag or kids’ school bags again when you have some hooks placed in your entrance where they can always live. Failing that, dedicated shelves can do a similar job to bag hooks.See more inspiring entrances from around the country
3. Boot your hallway into shapeGather together all hats, gloves scarves and coats. Discard as much as possible, to take to the charity shop. Keep accessories with matching colour schemes that complement each other, and try to retain jackets that are multi-functional as you’ll wear them more than single-occasion ones.Temporarily sort your items into shoe boxes until you have time to buy suitable storage. At a later date, you can shop for attractive baskets, shelves or hanging pockets.
2. Make good use of your hallwayEntrance hallways attract clutter like a magnet – unless you provide suitable storage. Make the most of a narrow hallway by creating a little alcove with lots of hanging space, shoe storage, a phone charging point and even a bespoke umbrella nook. If you have little ones, make sure some of the hooks are within reach so they can hang up their own things.This hallway has a cosy, lived-in feel, but every item is neatly in its place.
