The entryway to a home is an often forgotten area when it comes to furnishing and decorating. Although typically a smaller transitional area, the foyer offers a great opportunity to craft a space that makes a welcoming first impression on all who enter.
Of course, to create an entry that is both beautiful and functional, most people will need plenty of storage. Entryways commonly become host to a litany of shoes, outerwear, umbrellas, bags and whatever else needs to be stowed upon arrival. The solution for this clutter is – more storage spaces!
For example, a coat rack offers the ideal space to hang coats and bags, keeping them tidy and out of the way. Depending on whether you opt for a wall-mounted coat rack or a larger freestanding piece, they may also include shelves or cubbies that make extra room for organization. If you have a bit more space in your foyer, an entryway bench can add additional storage and a place to sit while you kick off or lace up your footwear.
A shoe rack can hold quite a few pairs of shoes in a low-profile design if you’re looking for a subtler furniture option. Shoe racks also come in a wide range of styles to blend in or stand out as desired.
Finally, if you’re looking for something with more general storage, an entryway table is always a great choice. These are available in dimensions that can fit foyers of any size and offer a variety of storage options. Many include both shelves and drawers in addition to tabletop space that can be arranged with baskets, trays and other decorative storage.
