Home storage buyer’s guide

Good home storage is vital to keep your house or flat organised. Effective storage needs to provide a place for everything you have to store in each room. It will make items easy to find and keep them in good condition, too. The best home storage will ensure that your belongings are accessible as and when needed, and paperwork and documents are kept out of harm’s way. Good home storage also means that when items get strewn around – for example if kids are playing, or you’re working on a project in a home office space – they can all be tidied away again swiftly. Some storage furniture makes space for items behind cupboard doors or in drawers, both of which are suited to things that need to be kept tidy and clean as well as organised. But don’t forget the benefits of open storage that allows collections and one-off items to be part of the decorative scheme of a room because they’re on display. Our home storage range is extensive with handsome furniture designed for shoes, books, DVDs and vinyl, linens and tableware, and coats, shoes, bags and much more.

Choose a hall storage bench A hall storage bench is a must-have element of home storage, and we offer plenty to select from in our furniture collection. If footwear is the problem in your hallway, then opt for a shoe bench that provides a place to tidy both boots and shoes so they don’t clutter the hall floor. If you want a sleek finish, our shoe bench with doors allows you to hide the footwear away. Both the shoe bench and shoe bench with doors can be finished with a seat pad that not only invites members of your household to sit down and take off footwear – or avoids a balancing act when they’re leaving the house – but also provides an opportunity to inject pattern or colour to the hall with your choice of upholstery fabric. Alternatively, go for a hallway storage bench with cushion that combines a place to take a seat with hidden storage inside. 
 Sizing and suitability of a hall storage bench seat Our hall storage bench seats range in width from the more compact 86cm width of our double storage bench and storage bench with open shelves to the 123cm width of our triple storage bench with plenty of other options to suit what you want to tidy away and the proportions of your hall in between. If you’re tidying shoes, you’ll find that our shoe benches are flexible with removable shelves to allow the compartments to fit shoes or wellies. If your hall is particularly narrow, we’d recommend choosing a hall storage bench seat with open shelves so you don’t have to worry about the space required to open the doors. Think, too, about how often you’re going to need to access what’s stored. We have benches that are front opening for easy access, or try a top-opening version if seating’s the priority and you need to access the interior less. Personalise a hallway shoe storage bench Like all the designs from The Dormy House, our hallway shoe storage bench can be given individual style. You can pick from a selection of beautiful paint colours and make your shoe storage bench an eye-catching feature or give it a more understated finish. You can also paint our furniture yourself if you prefer. And, instead of using one colour all over, on our open shoe storage bench you can create on-trend style with a contrasting colour for the back of the shoe compartments. Go for a seat pad and you can pick any of the fabrics from our huge collection to upholster it. Equally, though, if you’ve already fallen for a fabric you can send it to us and we’ll use that instead: we’ll let you know how much you need to supply. If your shoe storage bench has doors, there’s a brilliant choice of handles or knobs so you can create a look that’s contemporary, classic or country to complement your home.
