Since you have to use it every day, and more frequently than nearly any other part of your house, it can be easy for clutter to build up in your entryway. From stacks of junk mail, to dirty shoes and coats, keeping your entryway clear can be a mammoth task. Luckily, Closet and Storage Concepts of Massachusetts is here to help! We value a well-organized home enough to make it our business, so here are our tips for keeping your entryway clutter free and spotless.
Having a table next to your front door is fairly common practice. It’s a great catch-all spot for things like keys, wallets, and mail. But if you’re not diligent, it can quickly get clogged with clutter. One great way to both prioritize and organize is to have separate mail baskets on your entryway table. If you have one basket designated for urgent mail such as bills, and a separate basket for less urgent mail such as cards, you’ll always be on top of things. Don’t forget to keep a recycling basket close at hand as well, so that you can get rid of junk mail before it has a chance to accumulate.
Shoe Racks and Baskets
Having a shoe rack right next to your front door is a great way to prevent dirt and mud from being tracked into the house. There are plenty of stylish looking racks or cabinets that will go with nearly any interior, and will serve as a reminder that shoes should be taken off as soon as the house is entered. Another great idea is to have a dirty shoe basket next to you regular shoe rack. This will be great for times when the kids come home with dirty or wet shoes that need to be separated from your clean shoe rack. You can immediately put the dirty shoes in the dirty shoe basket and deal with them later at your leisure, with no muck tracked throughout the rest of your house and no collateral damage!
Wall hooks are one of the easiest ways to upgrade your entryway. If you’re lucky enough to have a closet next to your front door that’s excellent, but even then hooks can still come in handy. They’re great for quickly hanging up coats and jackets that are used frequently enough that it would make little sense to hang them on a hanger after each use. You can also have a designated hook for your keys or your purse, so you’ll always know where to find them!
