Transform a front hall to meet all of your family's needs.
"Small investments can yield a lot," says Vallée. "This family invested $85 in supplies and 10 hours of work to transform their builder-basic entrance. Now they have a beautiful, neat entryway that meets the needs of a family with young children. Hooks at a kid-friendly height and benches to keep boots and sneakers out of the way make the space livable and practical."
