Display plants on DIY floating shelves - We’re all for practicality, but why not add some happiness-inducing greenery to spruce up your entryway? We even put together this list of the best houseplants and planters to make doing so as easy as possible. You can also install a couple floating shelves (here are 15 breathtaking shelves you don’t have to DIY) above your console table or coat rack to display potted plants or vases of flowers.
Make smart use of a nearby closet - If you’re lucky enough to have an entryway closet in your, ahem, entryway, take advantage of it. Even the world’s smallest, most poorly designed entryway closet has room for growth — and plenty of coats. With a smart layout (and some major decluttering), you can easily maximize the space in your entryway closet to fit everything you need. Install spice racks to hold notebooks and mail. Use wall hooks to store bags, purses, and umbrellas. Store shoes in plastic drawers. And use baskets to store accessories like hats, gloves and scarves.
