Small Entryway Organization

Even the smallest of entryways can be organized. Here's how to pack in storage for your on-the-go and out-the-door needs.

[MUSIC] combat the clutter in your entryway, no matter how small it is, with a few simple tricks. First, decide what you really need to have in your entry. And then relocate everything else to another place in your home. Next, find a place for your entryway essentials. Start with a console table with plenty of storage options. Such as open shelves and drawers. Add bins for easy and stylish storage. Label your bins to clearly indicate what goes where. Prevent shoe pile-ups by using the lower shelf as out of the way footwear storage. Use unconventional solutions for table top storage. A vintage pot as a charging perch. A lunch box as a caddy for a digital camera and its accessories. And a dessert dish for dropping jewelry. Eliminate the key hunt every morning. Hang keys on a jewelry tree, so they're always in the same place. Install wall cubbies as a home for small objects, like makeup and pens. Hang a few hooks alongside the cubbies for coats and bags. Add a small bench as a perch for putting on shoes. Place a lidded basket for scarves and hats beneath the bench. No matter how small your entry way, it's easy to squeeze in storage. Just streamline what you're storing there and add these simple solutions. [MUSIC]
