Nice key cabinets for your entrance hall

Everything in its place is a rather tired expression, but it’s still a good one. With specific places for things like keys it becomes much easier to keep track of them all rather than lose them in a box or on a shelf somewhere.

With a key cabinet in the hall, you can keep track of the whole family's keys, and also store those other keys that aren’t used so often. With some models you also get a noticeboard.

3 tips for buying key cabinets

  1. Choose the right number of hooks. One key per hook is a good rule of thumb and it also means you spend less time searching for the right key.

  2. Think bigger. Do you need a bulletin board or a mirror as well? Then a combination model is perfect for saving wall space.

  3. Review your security. Maybe you need a key cabinet with a code, at least for those keys whose locks protect your most valuable things.
