Organizer for hall for ironing board, shopping cart, etc

Posted by NYChelen (My Page) on

My manhattan apartment has a 12 feet hall from end of kitchen to back exit where we now have to store ironing board, shopping cart, step stool, etc. I'm looking for a very modern perhaps stainless steel organizing system where I can hang these things. Found EZ Wall Organizer but the design is not modern.

Thanks for any help.

Have you checked Ikea? Their Grundtal series has a wall bar, with various shelves and hooks that attach to it, plus wall shelves that mount directly to the wall. You can customize it to store what you want.

If you need ideas on how to configure the system, go to the Apartment Therapy site and search on Grundtal. You'll get a ton of ideas.

Better look for "Hallway" at IKEA.

RE: Oops... forgot to mention this

I suppose the ironing board and shopping cart fold?
I'd just mount sturdy hooks on the wall and hang them up.

What about stainless-steel pegboard?

or powdercoated metal pegboard in a bright color?

With these guys, there are slats, that are sort of cool looking. http://www.wallcontrol.com/Catalog/Panels/Panels1.htm

And tons and tons of hooks (even one in the top row, #10-UH-003, that would be great (in pairs) to hold an ironing board w /T-shaped legs, or the handle of your shopping cart)

This stainless-steel pegboard has square pegs; sort of chic looking

another product to suggest

Those guys w/ the slat-shaped holes even have a laundry kit--

the small version is $35; the large version is $80
Here's the large version. You could buy an extra set of those U-shaped hooks to put on the right-hand panel to set the shopping card handle in.

I really like the pegboard idea because it lets you adapt so easily as you work with it. Want to hang up keys? a dog leash? a basket to put lunch bags in? a holder for take-out menus, or for junk mail that you want to toss?
