Narrow Storage Furniture for Tight Spaces + Giveaway

Round up of narrow furniture storage pieces for hallways and small spaces.


I am super excited about today’s post because I have teamed up this week with three of my blogland friends and Kirkland’s for the “Resolution:Organize” event, going on right now at Kirkland’s.  Megan from Honey We’re Home, Kate from Centsational Girl and Kim from Sand and Sisal, have all shared fantastic organizing ideas and products from Kirkland’s this week.  You can check out their posts/projects by clicking their links above.

**At the end of this post, I’m giving away a $100.00 Kirkland’s gift card to help one lucky winner to help with getting organized** 

I was really excited to do this post today because I have two narrow hallways and several tight spaces in my home that really waste a lot of space.  I’m sure you guys have those little spots in your home that you wish you could find really narrow pieces to not only decorate but that create additional storage. If you live in a condo or an apartment, this is probably a big issue for you.

This space from my living room to our hallway has driven me crazy all these years because I haven’t been able to find a narrow enough piece of furniture that could add storage and look pretty, at the same time.  The width of my hallway is exactly 45″, which makes it really challenging (sorry for the bad pic, took this at night):

Narrow storage furniture that works perfect for hallways and tight spaces.


Kirkland’s is really smart and has come out with a lot of really nice narrow storage furniture pieces that are anywhere from 11″- 16″ in depth to help with these narrow space issues.  These pieces are ideal for narrow hallways and tight spaces like my trouble spot.  I was so excited to finally find a solution by incorporating this pretty black distressed chest that is only 12″ in depth from Kirkland’s that I just love and is perfect:


Narrow furniture pieces with storage.  Perfect for hallways and small spaces.


This chest is a perfect catch-all for my family as we come in and leave our home and I have set it up where everyone has their own little top drawer (there are 3 of us).  The bottom three shelves are for storing extra scarves and another drawer is for flashlights and household extras:

This chest not only looks so pretty and filled the blank wall space but it gave us tons of extra storage that we needed right at our back door (back door is immediately to the left).  For as narrow as the chest is, it’s also really sturdy and well made. We still have 33″ of walking space around the piece, which is still plenty of room (I think 30″ is probably the minimum).

So, I couldn’t resist and since this piece is so out in the open and everyone will be using it, I painted the inside of the drawers with my favorite magenta/hot pink paint (Glamorous from Velvet Finishes) for just a really fun pop of color:


Paint inside of drawers hot pink for a fun pop of color


Paint inside of drawers for a fun pop of color.


For my own drawer, I wanted a place to quickly drop my jewelry, sunglasses and little stuff as I come in the back door.  If I can keep clutter stored and all that little stuff at the door, it doesn’t clutter up throughout the house.

I used a Kirkland’s small jewelry tray to hold my jewelry and little stuff:


Paint the inside of drawers with a fun pop of color.


That little jewelry tray is not longer online but I know that there are still at a lot of these pieces still available in stores (they come in small and large sizes) and fit in drawers perfectly.  You can look through Kirkland’s other jewelry trays here if you’re interested.

To show you more options, I pulled together a great collection of some of my favorite Kirkland’s narrow furniture options that each have a lot of storage but are narrow in depth and run 11″-16″:


Narrow storage furniture that can fit in hallways and small areas.  Narrow in depth.  Kirkland's
1) Mirrored 3-Drawer Chest- $399.00 (15.25″ in depth)
2) Ward Mirrored Console Table- $59.99 (on sale today)(11.75″ in depth)
3) Blue Distressed 6-Drawer Chest- $269.00 (12″ in depth)***This is the piece I used but I choose the black one
4) Distressed Cherry Mirrored Cabinet– $299.00 (14.57″ in depth) Great for a bar cabinet!
5) Turquoise Hexagon Chest– $239.99 (on sale today) (14″ in depth) This comes in 3 colors
6) Champagne Mirrored Console Table- $249.99 (13.8″ in depth) Great for a narrow entry way

I also wanted to mention the pretty Kirkland’s accessories that I used on the top of my chest including this perfect sized monogram burlap vanity tray that we’re using for keys, phones and all that little stuff (not available online but my small store had almost every letter) :

and I used a hurricane metal candle holder that came in a set of 3 and I spray painted it white:

  60. Jennifer says:

    LOVE how you customized that piece with the pop of hot pink inside the drawers. I get nervous about painting a large piece of furniture, especially one that gets a prominent spot in the house, but painting the insides… ANYONE can do that. Even if it’s not perfect, it’ll only be seen my us, and will still brighten our mood every time we open a drawer. SO am going to try that.

  61. Laura says:

    I’d buy the golden deer head plaque for my nursery!

  62. mila powers says:

  98. Kellee Robinson says:

    I’m new to Kirkland’s but I love the mirrored chest. I have a black cabinet in my dining room that is screaming for PINK drawers…..or am I just hearing my own inner voice because PINK is my fav color? Either way, paint department here I come.
