Your entryway sees you off in the morning and greets you when you get home. Make the most of your entryway space or mudroom by combining style and function for a practical spot to start and end your day. Read on to learn about our favorite entryway furniture essentials to keep every day running smoothly.
Console tables provide the perfect spot to drop off and pick up your day-to-day items. Select an option that's not going to take up too much space while still providing you plenty of storage. Consider a table with drawers to stash away small items or additional shelving to display your favorite décor. Deck out your console table with lighting, plants, and small storage bins, bowls, and boxes for keys, mail, and other necessities.
A little extra seating can go a long way in your entryway. From basic styles with simple shelving to storage benches with open cubbies or flip-top compartments, an entryway bench provides another option for keeping your space clutter-free.
Storage space for coats and sweaters is critical to keeping your entryway looking tidy and welcoming. Freestanding coat racks provide plenty of hooks for hanging while many wall-mounted styles also offer storage space for small items plus room for photos and other accents.
For entryways with limited space, consider a hall tree that combines a variety of storage needs into one piece of furniture. The most versatile designs have hooks and storage options for footwear, umbrellas, hats, and bags, plus a little space to show off treasured items or store small items. Many hall trees feature mirrors along with a small seating area to put on shoes before heading out the door.
Put the finishing touches on your entryway with a rug to help anchor the space and keep your floors clean. Add a mirror to double check your appearance on the way out the door. If you have extra wall space, hang some shelving or wall art to show off your personality. Stylish storage boxes and baskets help keep items easily accessible without being out in the open.
With everything having its place right as you walk in the door, your home will feel even more in harmony, and you can truly relax after a long day.
