Label your coat rack - A classic wall-mounted coat rack in an entryway is always a good idea. It’s easy to install, saves floor space, and adds a welcome dose of personality to an otherwise bland part of the home. This particular coat rack, however, kicks functionality up a notch. How? With chalkboard labels. You can label your hooks by type of outerwear (like in the photo above) or by person if you have a big household. It’s a simple detail that’ll make your stuff even more organized (and — let’s be honest — a little cuter, too).
Entries are usually the smallest room in the house, so carefully select pieces that balance both form and function. A mirror reflects the light and provides a spot for one last glance at hair and makeup, while a bench provides a perch for pulling on boots. Take the time to find pieces that have an interesting shape or patina to create visual interest.
