Ideas for Contemporary Hallway Furniture

It may surprise some people to learn that the hallway is one of the most important spaces in your home. Not only is it the first thing people see when they enter your house. It’s also the last space you pass through every time you leave it. First impressions can be lasting ones, so it’s important that your hallway says the right things about you.

Here at Edmunds & Clarke we’ve been providing beautiful furniture for our customers’ homes since 1977. We specialise in enhancing household spaces, and we’re proud of what we do. So here are some great ideas for contemporary hallway furniture.

A place to reflect

There are certain items that are essential for any modern hallway, and decorative mirrors are high on that list. Before leaving the house, a glance in the mirror let’s you know that you’re ready to face the world. Arriving guests, too, will appreciate the chance to quickly check their appearance.

Light and space:

If your hallway is quite narrow, a mirror (or mirrors) will help to create the illusion of more space. Mirrors also reflect light, which can help to make a hallway seem less gloomy.

Modern design:

For a contemporary look, something with a light wood or painted frame may be the right choice. Our circular grid mirror can even give the impression of an extra window, offering both style and utility.

Final checks:

For some people a vanity mirror isn’t quite enough, and our oak wall mirrors could be the answer. Before you leave the house, it’s a great way to check that you haven’t put anything on inside out.

Console tables

When we walk into the house, we often drop house keys, car keys, gloves etc on the nearest available surface. That’s fine – until it’s time to leave again and you can’t remember where you put them.

Console tables take up very little space but provide a suitable surface and useful storage. Fitted with drawers, these are functional items, but can also add a dash of panache to your hallway.

Hallway storage

Dressing for winter weather makes sense, but boots, wellingtons and coats can make your hallway seem cluttered. A hallway cupboard is the ideal storage solution, and a great way to keep your hallway tidy.

Our Scandic shoe cabinet offers a practical solution for winter footwear, with a splash of contemporary style. Alternatively, a bespoke hallway storage unit would mean an end to picking your way through wellies, shoes and coats.
