How Hidden Doors Can Transform a Hall Closet or Under-the-Stairs Closet

Unlike other spaces in your home that are frequently seen and utilized, the closets in your home are probably an afterthought. Who cares what your closet looks like as long as it keeps your extra linens and holiday decorations tucked neatly out of sight? The truth is that closets have the potential to not only make your home more functional but also enhance the overall style of your living spaces. Check out these simple ways to transform the closets in your hallway and under the stairs for extra style and comfort with Murphy Door.

Get Organized

One of the most important functions of a closet is its ability to store your belongings in a way that makes them easily accessible. This is especially true for shared closets, including the ones in your hall and under the stairs. What's the best way to elevate the functionality of your closets? Organize them, of course! Here are some practical tips to help you do just that:

  • Start by emptying the closet out completely, giving yourself a blank slate to work with.
  • Go through each item piece by piece, only holding onto the things your family needs, uses, or loves.
  • Use boxes, bins, and baskets to hold similar items.
  • Label everything to make locating and putting things away a breeze.
  • Leave room to add items in the future without overcrowding the space.

Maximize Space With a Mirror Door

Believe it or not, the outside of your closet matters as much as what's behind it. After all, you're probably not gazing at the inside of your closet unless you're looking for something specific. With this in mind, consider how the exterior of your closet can make its surrounding space more attractive and inviting. One way to achieve this is by replacing your ordinary closet door with a Mirror Door from Murphy Door. Adding a mirror to your hallway is an effortless way to make the space feel brighter and more spacious. It's especially useful if your hall is narrow or dark.

Add Extra Storage

What good is a hall closet if it doesn't provide much-needed additional storage for your family? Even if your under-the-stairs or hall closet is well-organized and spacious, every closet could use more storage space. The back of your closet door is an excellent option to maximize your storage space. Adding hooks to the back of the door can provide a convenient spot for coats and hats. Likewise, over-the-door shoe racks can hold shoes. They can also hold hand towels and cleaning products. 

A hidden door, such as Murphy Door's Dresser Door, can also enhance the storage capabilities of your hall closet by adding 20 cubic feet of storage to the doorway! Each door offers four convenient drawers, two adjustable shelves, and one fixed shelf. You'll have plenty of room to store and display your family's most frequently used belongings. 

Enhance Your Hallway's Style

Hallways and the area under your stairs are often forgotten areas that are lacking when it comes to home decor. Taking the time to properly decorate these spaces is a simple way to make your home feel more welcoming and put together. Murphy Door's customizable Flush Mount Bookcase Door is a wonderful option to instantly make your hallway more attractive and functional. Best of all, no one will suspect that a closet lies behind your handsome built-in bookshelf.
