We all have that one bowl in our corridor, where we dump our keys when coming through the front door. This can be a messy site and a bit of an inconvenience in the mornings when searching through a pile of keys. If you want to cut out this mess and inconvenience, we suggest that you create a wall storage compartment, which is both stylish and useful. A wall storage compartment is perfect for storing your keys, glasses or stationary.
