Considering the fact that an entryway offers the first glimpse inside a home, it’s a seriously overlooked and undervalued area. Sure, your entryway might be small, sparse, dark, or narrow, but hey — it’s got major style and storage potential. After all, what do you get when you remove the piles of shoes and coats behind your front door? Glorious, wide open space. Or maybe just space — space perfect for storing and organizing everything you drop off or pick up on your way in and out of your home. Here are 15 amazing multi-purpose entryway storage hacks, solutions, and ideas that will keep your home’s first and last impression on-point.
Ceiling Fixtures - Ceiling lights don’t have to blend in seamlessly the way some lighting does, and if you don’t have the space for a chandelier, this type of fixture is a smart way to add visual interest to your entryway. Choose from traditional, elegant, contemporary or bold styles to fit your home and add a dynamic feel. From flushmount ceiling lights to semi-flushmount and track lighting, ceiling lights offer versatility in addition to casting pleasant ambient lighting. Track lights are a great option for highlighting specific areas or works of art, while all ceiling lights add a lovely glow to the area without limiting overhead space.
High Gloss - Check out this chic, high gloss tile and the stunning, crisp entrance it helps to create! For a no-fuss finish we definitely recommend going with a similar design in a neutral of your choice. Again, you’ll set a solid foundation that can easily blend and change when and if the decor around it does. Small Checkered - Checkered prints are a timeless choice as well. And the smaller you go the more interest and contemporary appeal you’ll be bringing into the space. Check out similar inspiration over at Enig Wonen.
Use a storage bench to hold bags and shoes - If you have room for a bench in your entryway (you know, to sit on while tying your shoes, resting after a long day, or pondering hygge), make it a storage bench. You can stash shoes, baskets full of cozy gloves and hats, blankets, or even your collection of dog toys inside of the storage bench.
