A Smarter EntrywayBy
With summer activities in full swing, it's time for many of us to rethink the mudroom. The entryway should act as a sort of filter for the rest of the home, catching shoes, clutter and even debris before they enter the main living areas of the home. This will save you valuable time when cleaning and when getting ready to head out the door in the morning. Here are some great entryway organizers to get you on your way to a more peaceful entry to your home:
The Naples Hall Tree is great for a large, unused wall. It has a bench for sitting on while getting ready and a lift top that allows for extra hidden storage - great for shoes, beach bags, towels and sporting equipment.
A more compact choice yet still providing the storage benefits of a full size entryway organizer, the Alaterre Collection Cherry Bench with Baskets is a great idea. It comes in several basket colors to suit your family's needs.
Too often the entryway becomes the dumping ground for mail. Keep messes to a minimum with a wall mounted mail sorter, like this Door Entry Mail Organizer.
Speaking of walls, the Sonoma Black Cubbie Shelf For Entryway mounts right to one, making good use of wasted space for extra mudroom organizing power.
And for the contemporary home, the Urban Seating Storage Bench has a streamlined, modern look with hidden storage under the seat. Shoes can be lined up underneath the bench for storage.
Make the most use of your mudroom for a stress-free rest-of-the-house.
