Hallways are seemingly one of the most important rooms in the home, first impressions count here yet they often get used as a dumping ground that’s unorganised, and uninviting.
I get it. I have a dark narrow hallway – one of the biggest homeowners gripes, and adding any type of storage solution is often not possible without altering the traffic flow in the space.
I’ve been sourcing storage solutions to try and find the best hallway bench with storage that will conceal those shoes, and miscellaneous rubbish, keeping it out of sight, out of mind for a cool, calm and collected hallway space.
It’s 9 hallway bench with storage solutions you wish you’d always had!
9 Hallway Bench With Storage Solutions
1.Belti Storage Bench
For modern, transitional interiors – this La Redoute wicker style bench is a perfect addition to a hallway space.
With an oval shape it brings an overall softness, with the black legs giving definition to the area. It has a depth of 38cm so is suitable for some smaller hallways too.
It has a large compartment in the middle with 1 compartment in each corner so there’s ample storage options for small accessories such as scarves, keys and dog leads.
I’d be tempted to get a cushion made up for the top to add some warmth and colour to the unit.
2. Hallway Modular Bench Unit
If space allows it, this modular bench unit from Shelved is a real beauty. It’s actually a bespoke storage unit designed using Shelved’s 3D product configurator so you can create the perfect composition to suit your space.
The darker wood grain gives mid century modern vibes, but it would suit a transitional space too. Ample opportunities for shoe storage here, and a place to display some decorative items too.
3. Lucy Cane Cream Storage Bench
If you like something a little more rustic and French inspired, this cane hallway bench with storage is a great choice. It has three spacious drawers adorned with charming cut-out handles and a tasteful cane wedding design.
The bench has the added bonus of a plush padded seat cushion top, offering both comfort and style. The cream colour way, adorned with an aged painted finish, lends a touch of sophistication to any setting.
It’s one of the most sizeable hallway bench with storage ideas, so it’s well suited to larger spaces where it won’t affect traffic flow through the hallway.
4. Rustic Narrow Bench With Shoe Storage
For a modern rustic interior lover, this hallway bench with storage is one of my favourite picks. Handcrafted from extra rustic reclaimed wood which is bursting with rustic character from its historic industrial past!
This makes the perfect showpiece for a hallway with a handy shelf which is perfect for shoes and storage.It has a depth of 28cm so it’s perfect for narrower hallways.
I would finish with a throw, or top with a padded cushion in a ticker stripe for added comfort and warmth.
5. Garden Trading Clockhouse Hallway Storage Bench
If you want something a little less rustic, this hallway bench with storage features a well defined, grey frame which makes it suitable for more traditionally styled spaces.
It features a rack for shoe storage and an oak top for a rustic edge.
6. Bromley Grey Storage Bench With Cushion
This Bromley grey storage bench brings a touch of country classic to your hallway.
It comes supplied with smooth sliding drawers for ample storage opportunities. It does come with a padded cushion for the top, but add a couple of your own cushions for added depth and pattern in the space.
This is a classic piece of storage that could actually be used in most rooms of the homes.
7. Entryway Coat Rack Bench
If you have a narrow hallway the best way to gain storage is to build upwards.
Elevated storage doesn’t eat into floor space where it’s a premium, and it gives much more opportunities for storage of coats, bags, hats and dog leads.
This modern, industrial style unit is one of the most affordable. Although, it still takes up a fair bit of space and is not something that would be suitable for a very narrow hallway space.
8. Lazar Entry Bench
I love the versatility of this unit. It gives Japandi, Scandinavian and mid century modern vibes.
This clever unit features integrated elevated hooks for coats, hats and bags to be hung, with a deep storage bench for hiding and storing anything else that you always need before leaving the house.
9. Luxury Metal Shoe Rack Bench
Perhaps you’re looking for a more luxe look in your hallway? This brass finished shoe rack is topped with a luxurious green velvet padded cushion, with ample storage for shoes.
This style of hallway bench with storage would suit art deco style, maximalist and eclectic interior spaces.
