organize this: the entryway!
The entry is a space that should make you smile when you enter the home. It is the first impression, a place where everything lands and a multi-functional area that hugs you when you walk through the door.
Since the entry is where coats are hung, boots are dried, books and backpacks are stored… it is important to consider dual purposed storage that is also space effective. It also helps to cure entry clutter since they are typically smaller spaces and a few things can quickly create an overwhelming sense of chaos.
If the main purpose of the entry is to hold a few coats for guests and a dog leash for Spot, a few simple hooks do the trick!
However, if you need to boast a little extra storage, lets dream about individual locker cubbies… so beautiful!
The reason the individual hooks/lockers work so well, is because they allow you to designate a spot for each family member, and store every little item that comes through the door.
The only problem with creating a large wall of built in lockers, is that your home needs the space to accommodate them. Short on space? Update an existing closet into built in awesomeness!
Did you know that bakeware makes great shoe trays and boot storage?
If you don’t have a natural entry in your home, they can be simple to create with the addition of a nice console table for dropping keys and mail along with a few hooks or a coat tree for bags and outerwear.
Or mix and match modular stacking closet storage pieces to create an entry that boasts endless storage options!
Benches are always a great addition to an entry since they provide a place to sit while putting on shoes, but they can also double as storage for hats, mittens and footwear!
When you walk through the door with mail and schoolwork, a designated basket or bin is a great way to ensure it quickly finds a home and doesn’t later become a monstrous paper pile.
So there you have it! A few simple items can turn any empty space inside the door, into a fabulous and organized entryway!
