Entryway Storage Ideas - For most homeowners, clutter is one of the biggest issues in the entryway. From shoes to purses and bags, each one of these items needs a designated space in the foyer. Fortunately, there are many tricks you can use to tidy up. An entryway storage shelf with hooks is the perfect way to keep coats and purses off the ground and where you need them. You’ll want to make the most of your entryway furniture. Look for an entryway bench with shoe storage, especially if you have a small entryway. Some entryway tables can have small baskets or bins on top for keys and other important items you need on a daily basis.
Store shoes in a vintage mail organizer - Disclaimer: Finding a gorgeous and intact antique mail organizer isn’t exactly easy. But we can still draw inspiration from the idea. If you can’t score your very own vintage mail sorter like Sincerely, Sara D, build one by following these instructions from Remodelaholic. Another option is to find another equally functional cubby shelf system (or wall hutch like the one that Abbi from Broad City uses in her bedroom) to store shoes and baskets of accessories.
Chandeliers - Chandeliers add a bold, glamorous look to your entryway, and they come in a variety of styles including elegant crystal chandeliers, colonial candle styles or sleek drums and cage chandeliers. Choose a fixture that’s proportional to the space of the entryway. For example, if your entryway has 75 square feet of space or more, look for a chandelier with a diameter of at least 12" to 18". Smaller entryways look better with smaller chandeliers unless you want the fixture to serve as a focal point.
Slate Herringbone - This slate herringbone design from Studio Mcgee is a more traditional choice when it comes to foyers. But, it’s not so traditional that it becomes bland and boring. Instead, it adds a sexy sleekness to your entryway that will definitely be adorned and enjoyed. White Hexagon - White hexagon tiles could be a fun route to take. Neutral and versatile, the beauty here is in the unique shaping and personalizing of the foyer’s design. Use it as a way to finish off the entrance to your modern home or add something a bit chicer to your trendy, rustic space.
