Hi everyone!
We have an overload of kids paraphernalia in our hall way and I think one of those hall storage things with baskets would suit us best. it's getting depressing cos we have hats and gloves and waterproof all sorts everywhere (two toddlers).

I've seen this one http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/0175980/Trail/searchtext%3EHALL.htm but wondered if anyone knew of any cheaper than this please?
This set up would be ideal as there's 4 of us and 4 baskets, although more baskets for more cr ap would be great, as we do have lots of cr ap which we might need one day so daren't throw away.

Tia, it would be a real weight off my shoulders if I could get it sorted. My feng shui is very withered, lol!

Cheers
Lucy

look here? the unit you were looking at in argos originally-did you look at the size of it? it wouldnt hold my kids clutter! have a look at the ikea ideas-its really good-maybe you can get some tips?

the two drawer unit of the same drawers is only £3.49

two of these would be far cheaper and more flexible should you want to move them etc.

If it was me, I would buy the stack n nest boxes and save myself £80, in argos they come in pink/purple, black and red/blue, now I know these arent everyones choice of colours, but you can also buy clear ones from like likes of woolies that also have lids, great for kids stuff.

Might not look as pretty as the wicker one, but will fit a whole lot more stuff in them.

At the mo it's white and plaster :oops: Needs painting! Has done for weeks. You can imagine how depressing ti is, we've had it replastered and it's in a right mess with stuff everywhere.

The floor tiles are large black and white ones, probably going to keep it neutral as we want to move soon. We don't have much wall space but there's space for something like this or something bench stylie, so we can keep stuff all together.

Thanks for the post Louloo, that one would be ideal if we didn't have 2 really boisterous girls creating chaos, I can see that they'd probably knock that one over or pull it onto themselves once we'd crammed it full of their scarves and stuff. Who says girls are dainty, lol! :roll:

Cheers again for all your help

Well with 3 kids(4, 2 and 6 months) my hall is a lovely ripped wall paper and some drawings and some names on the wall.

Just like our loo! Lol! Started with a small corner of wallpaper slightly bent and ended up with quite a few huge rips in it. Little bug gers.

I do like the idea of having the ones with the baskets..I know that if there's anything with a flat surface stuff will get dumped on it then people will put stuff next to it instead of inside it because they can't be bothered to lift the lid up. :roll: I think if they had a drawer each it would probably be easier too, it'll be for gloves and hats and stuff so hopefully it'll mean we can get out of the house a bit quicker if their stuff's more oragnised. In theory.

I'm wondering if it's worth investing in one of the Homebase ones, but MDF is so cheap, I think £89/99 seems dear. I could ask dh to make one but he'll probably keel over. He's already got a list of stuff to do as long as my arm, lol! :whistling:

ps I've spread some rep around to show my appreciation of your help in this dilemma!

Personally would go for the Argos or hombase ones. Expensive but if the quality is good enough, once the kids are a lot older it will come in very useful in other rooms in the house in years to come eg home office, garage, bathrooms

The cheaper Argos ones look nice but IMO would be pulled over on a regular basis with toddlers. Also the frame looks like flimsy.

The homebase one looks far more adaptable and looks like shoes would be able to go in there for a long time.......when their feet get a lot bigger, then you have a lot more shoes / trainers / heels etc. The large Argos one looks as though it might only hold a only a couple couple of pairs.

Friend's Dad did make me some furniture once which of course I still have . Might be worth considering then getting baskets to fit. Might be more expensive if you hire a carpenter though

What about this bench at Tesco Direct for £80, temp out of stock but probably a short wait and with all the voucher deals and free delivery workround you could get it cheaper.

That looks really nice, I could fancy one of them for my hallway.

can you not just get a strong chest of drawers?

we have this bought of ebay(we didnt put the top bit on) sold by dbnurserygoods approx £30 bnew(we got one upstairs and one down)and its strong-we get shoes in the bottom and the deep drawer holds scarfs and hats etc...ok its got a top but you can also add more storage on the top?


must admit i like the tesco one... ;)

Tesco one looks really nice, less obtrusive. and dark wood which is unusual. I could be tempted...but I don't need it.

Wish I had had one when mine were toddlers, sniff. 2nd one gone to Uni and missing him like mad. am in tears now, but I am smiling...remember him as a toddler too. How does the time go so quick?
