We began with this as our family entrance hallway. As you can see, backpacks, purses, coats, shoes, etc found their way here.
Before you begin, decide how much space you have and what issues you would like for your Home Organization Center to solve. You can see the Six Steps I used to determine what would be needed for a command center to work for my family here.
I decided to use this long hallway and split in into two distinct areas.
