    all wonderful ideas.. it is amazing what a few trick can do.. I might add a former neighbor used your hall idea in a small kitchen. She RECESSED her cabinets in between the studs.. rather than lose that space and mount on drywall..it does take a bit more planning but worth it.. My fav is the coat area.. and the mirror by the window,, so much more effective with the larger mirror..
