Greet guests in style this season by preparing your entryway. Learn how with these coat storage solutions!
Take care of coats with this simple suggestion: hooks. You can opt for a row of neatly arranged hooks or install them at various heights. For an eclectic look, try mixing and matching different hooks in different patinas and sizes. Knobs originally intended for drawers can also work well. Plus, they can be very affordable!
If you’re lucky enough to have a coat closet, make sure you have enough room to put your guests’ outerwear. If all you need is a simple spruce up, try upgrading old hangers. If you’re running out of room to store everything you need to keep, a custom solution could be the way to go. This could help you utilize space that is not being taken advantage of. Using custom shelving can create a place for sporting equipment and other items.
Please, Take a Seat
In addition to coat storage, also consider including a place to put on and take off shoes. A bench could be a simple addition. Tuck shoes underneath or consider a built-in storage bench. A storage bench can be perfect for tucking in shoes or cold weather accessories like scarves and hats. A row of hooks or pegs can go above your bench for easy access to coats.
Standing Room Only
If you have a really small entryway, a slender standing coat rack could be all you need (or have room for). You can also consider a rack that is mounted to the wall so that it stays out of the way. Consider different heights if you have little ones coming to stay!
Keep the storage hidden by utilizing doors. This can give your entry or mudroom a clean look, and it can give you the chance to keep any possible clutter out of sight. Use small hooks on the inside of the doors to keep keys or the dog leash and maximize storage.
