Make a closet with stacking drawer(s) or pole for hanging. Could use above fridge, add shoe organizer (cut to fit the door and stapled to the door so it doesn't move) for shoes, &/or additional storage like hair dryer, umbrella, etc.
Smart idea for winter accessories in the coat closet! Shoe hanger on back of closet door. For hats and gloves. I've got one in the bathroom with washcloths and empty pockets for guest to put their bathroom stuff in when they visit.
