When it comes to shopping for entry storage ideas, here are a few things to remember. Your entrance will be the first impression that your guests see when entering your home. So adding a great piece of furniture can add functionality and you can still have a great design to hide some of the clutter.
You will want to hide backpacks, shoes, coats, etc. especially once the kids come home. A bench with storage will aid in helping to conceal these items. When it’s wet outside a storage bench can give you somewhere to sit and take off your shoes and makes for a great place to rest.
When you are short on room in your entrance, a great wall hook is the way to go. Hang your coats, purse, umbrella there when your in a hurry. Wall hooks come in a variety of designs that makes it fun to find one to match your decor and are sturdy enough to hold heavier items.
A hall tree is my personal favorite. Since it is vertical the space goes upward and takes up less floor space. With a flip top on the bench, it’s easy to conceal lots of clutter, plus the added coat hooks can come in real handy. You can grab everything you need before heading out.
If you are looking for a place just to place your keys or purse, choose a table or half table in your entrance. If you don’t have room for a storage bench, a table is a great place to drop your belongings when you come home. Adding a key organizer above the table can give you added storage and bring the eye up to give you more of a design effect.
If you simply do not have room for any of the above items, simple add a coat rack. This will make it easy for anyone to hang up their belongings instead of using the closet. They can handle many coats and accessories and are ready to grab when leaving the house. In the summer, simply store it in the garage or a corner of your basement.
There truly are endless possibilities to customizing your entrance to fit your needs. No matter your life style there are many ways to and plenty of entry storage ideas.
