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.
The entryway to your home gives guests their first impression of your interior space.
