If you don’t have enough space for a console table, you can put up your favorite photos, or even works of art, on the walls for an instant gallery of your own. Again, different kinds of frames can spice up your collection, or you can opt for uniform ones to achieve a minimalist aesthetic.

Wooden hooks


Entryways shouldn’t just be pretty—they should also be functional. If you don’t have any space for bigger and bulkier storage options, hooks are a great alternative to keep your bags and umbrellas in place.

Dress up a drab corridor or entryway with an eye-catching wallpaper. The great thing about this is that there are plenty of wallpapers available that not only come in interesting prints. But if you want a more permanent fix, you can also choose to go for a cool and unexpected wall finish.
