How to Organize Your Entryway

Unorganizedentryway-MovingForwardIncWhether you have a large mudroom or a small foyer, you can easily and inexpensively organize the space to be usable and organized.

Before you start to organize your entryway, first think about your space and what you do when you walk into your home.

  • Do you toss your shoes in the corner?
  • Do you throw your keys and your mail on a desk?
  • How much room do you have in your entry way?
  • How many people live in your home?
  • Do you have pets?
  • Kids?
  • Sports equipment to store?

Organizing…There’s a lot to think about!

We all need a place to put our keys, so we can find them when we need them, but we also need to store shoes, coats, hats and mail. All these things need a good home.

Here are some ideas for organizing your entryway that are easy to do and inexpensive too!

If you don’t have room in your front hall or entry way then a threshold shelf with baskets for mail and keys and hooks for coats and hats may make a good alternative to using a desk or bench. This is a very welcoming way to greet your guests with a place to put their shoes, coats, keys, etc. In the storage bench you can keep leashes, bags and towels to wipe your pets dirty feet when they come in from a walk or play.

If you have even more room in your entry way, or you have a mudroom, consider 2 to 4 wooden or metal tower lockers. They are great for storing and keeping all the shoes, hats, coats, etc and you can close the doors and keep everything contained in a beautiful cabinet.

If you have even more room in your entry way, or you have a mudroom, consider 2 to 4 wooden or metal tower lockers. They are great for storing and keeping all the shoes, hats, coats, etc and you can close the doors and keep everything contained in a beautiful cabinet. You can even keep your brooms, mops and other cleaning supplies in a tower locker.

An organized entry can include messages…

If you want a message center in your entry way or mudroom, you can put up shelves, bulletin boards or chalk boards next to the tower locker.

If there is an outlet nearby, consider including a small entry way table or shelf to house your power cords so that you can charge your cell phones when you enter your home. If you have room, you can also charge a scooter here, too!

And lastly, protect your floors with a runner rug or welcome mat.
