5 Tips to style and organize your entryway
Have you ever wanted to tidy-up and reorganize your entryway? The entrance of your home really sets the tone for the entire space from the moment you first walk in the door. Our entryway, is currently a work in progress. We have tackled organizing the space, which I find is a really good place to start. We are still on the hunt for a fabulous piece of art to make it feel complete.
Today, I am going to share with you some ideas about how you can make your entryway feel absolutely organized and perfect as you walk in the door. This is a space that I worked for a client, a few years back when we were designing her living space.
Here are 5 simple steps to make your entryway more appealing as you walk in the door, so you can take a deep breath relax and enjoy your home more!
Remove all clutter and superfluous objects
I recommend that you start by removing unwanted objects and organizing clutter. Voila! You are already on your way to making your space functional and unique!
Follow these simple steps to get Organized
Follow these simple steps to add function to your entryway.
1.Organize shoes with a storage cabinet, baskets or shoe rack.
2.Create wall storage with coat racks or hook to organize, hats, scarves, backpacks and bags.
3.Decorate walls by adding a mirror or floating shelves. It make the entryway feel larger and more inviting.
4. Address the floors, by adding carpet runner or doormat to keep floors clean plus add texture or color. We cozied up the wood floor with a long denim rug runner- like this one.
5. Accessorize with trays, bowls, and baskets.
Bonus points, if you add a vase with fresh flowers. At the moment, personally like to use a woven storage bowl for keys. We added in a long basket below the bench too.
I loved the challenge of organizing her entrance because it led me to design a range of walnut coat racks and floating mirrors. The walnut coat rack was designed around our need for a wooden piece that felt organic, modern and had a variety of tonal qualities. In this way, the coat rack pulled the other wood pieces, the bench and the shoe storage together for us.
