When people decide to update their home, they don’t usually focus on the entryway…but they should. The entryway most likely sets the tone for the rest of the house and if it’s cluttered, it probably not a far stretch for your guests to think that the rest of your home is unorganized as well. Make a good first impression and gain some much-needed entryway storage with these 4 easy-to-add entryway updates.
- Create a Smooth Entrance. Your front door should swing open to greet you, not get caught up on carpet pile. We’ve got a host of different indoor/outdoor rugs that make a bright, cheery, no-catch entry. You can even buy two of the same style and place one outside the door and the other one inside, creating a nearly unbroken entry. These indoor/outdoor rugs have a smooth, low-pile texture and resist mold and mildew. To clean them, just take them outside and rinse with a hose. We’ve got indoor/outdoor rugs in every color you can think of, with whimsical dragonfly prints, chevron stripes, borders, stripes, and solid colors.
- Have a Seat. Come on in, take a load off, and slip off your shoes. Our handsome shoe storage bench lets you do all of those things, with its comfy cushion and organized shoe cubbies. Our entryway storage bench has quality furniture detailing, an antiqued metal drawer pull and holds up to 9 pairs of shoes in its cubbies. The shoe storage bench is available in 3 colors – black, rubbed walnut, and white to match your home decor.
- Look Sharp! An entryway mirror does so much for the space¬…it offers one final look as you leave the house and it reflects the room to make your space look larger. The Joplin Leaning Floor Mirror has a contemporary black frame with rubbed edges that reveal a well-loved look below. It’s a generously sized, contemporary touch to a mudroom or entryway.
- Hang It Up. Keep track of keys, hats, and other lightweight items by hanging them up as soon as you enter. With Decorative Wall Hooks, you can designate a hook for each family member while creating an interesting, artistic wall collage. The vintage-style, distressed wood finish and weathered iron finish on these numbered hooks (no longer carry) in the image below make them look like you might have found them in a quaint antique store.
