A reader shares clever stor­age so­lu­tions.

How good does the en­trance to Steph’s home look? Colour and tex­ture, teamed with prac­ti­cal stor­age so­lu­tions, cre­ate a wel­com­ing space that works for the whole fam­ily.

1 A line of coat hooks pro­vides a read­ily ac­ces­si­ble spot to hang school­bags, hand­bags, jack­ets, caps, scarves, ties and other grab-andgo fam­ily es­sen­tials.

2 Un­ex­pected pieces keep things or­gan­ised in this stylish space. A small cup­board houses wifi, phone and in­ter­net equip­ment all in one place – and out of sight.

3 A bench works as seat­ing and stor­age. Here, it’s used as a perch for ty­ing shoelaces and, says Steph, for keep­ing “things I have to re­mem­ber to take some­where.”

4 Chic bas­kets turn un­der­bench space into use­ful stor­age. These bas­kets hold news­pa­pers (for the fam­ily’s pizza oven) and re-us­able shop­ping bags.

5 An ad­join­ing study was knocked through to make this room larger. Tiled floors, pan­elled walls and rus­tic fur­ni­ture keep the space invit­ing, in­for­mal and fam­ily friendly.

“The hooks are for the myr­iad things that might oth­er­wise end up on the floor,” says Steph.
