Store shoes, bags, and accessories in baskets on a console. - For style and function, store everything from purses and gloves to stacks of mail and shoes in matching baskets. Easy, obvious, and yet totally impactful. Build a DIY wooden boot rack - If you want to keep your winter boots (or summer sneakers, for that matter) organized and easy to grab when you’re rushing out the door for an impromptu snowball fight, this DIY wooden boot rack is exactly what you need. Stephanie Lynn features her boot rack outside, but you can easily display it below your coat rack or next to a storage bench. If you decide to keep the boot rack inside, remember to place a tray beneath the rack to collect melted snow, dirt, and dust so your entryway floor stays clean.
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.
