Unless you’re the stay-at-home type, you likely use your entryway every day. And yet, most of us don’t spend more than a few minutes in our coat room or entry hallway. After all, you really only need to stay there for as long as it takes to take off your coat and shoes or put them back on again.
Alas, you’re bound to accumulate quite a wardrobe of outdoor clothing, including pairs of shoes for every season, coats for every temperature, gym clothes, winter wear, etc. But an entryway can only take so much stuff, and most aren’t big at all. At some point, you’ll need to spend more than a few minutes to figure out how best to store things.
So how do you go about this? The key to efficient entryway storage is to be creative and take small steps. There are quite a few entryway ideas for smartly storing your shoes, coats, and entryway key holders in such a way that they are easy to get to and don’t take up much room. As a rule of thumb, the more multi-functional storage solutions you have the better. While you’re improving your entryway, consider upgrading your flooring as well.
