Organization Tips for Small Entryways

Posted by: Storganization Staff Tags: Entryway, Home Organization, Mudroom, Organize by Room

Our entryways are our visitors’ first impression of our home. But what if your entryway is just a small hallway or opens directly into a room like the kitchen or living room? We’ve put together some of our favorite solutions for organizing smaller spaces that are functional without sacrificing style.  

Rethink your entryway closet.

If you have a closet by the front door, make this space work harder by staggering hooks at varying heights to hold jackets and bags or adding cubbies for everyone’s shoes.

Or, if your closet is large enough, consider installing a new closet organizer with different hanging heights, drawers and shoe-shelf options like a ClosetMaid ShelfTrack system.

Take advantage of all the space in a small entryway closet by installing double hang rods and shelving.

Go vertical!

Another way to store all your fall apparel throughout the season is to add open shelving and hanging space. Our Premium and Ventilated wood shelving options can turn a small nook or unused wall into a storage center for outerwear and miscellaneous items like gloves, hats, scarves and more.

It’s easy to add attractive hanging space and shelving to your smaller entryway.

A hanging cube organizer is a great storage extension for less-spacious entryways. Use it as a drop-zone to catch your keys and mail or incorporate your style by displaying decorations!

Make an open floor plan work for you.

If your front door opens into another room in the house, establish an entryway space by adding a small bench along the closest wall to the door to create a sitting area.

Choose seating that doubles as storage, like our Premium 3-Cube Bench, for an easy entryway solution.

Or, if your kitchen or living room is the main entrance point of the house, a desk or table can double as extra storage for the entire room.


Console Table

A console table can create an instant drop zone by the front door.

Even if space is an issue for your entryway, there are lots of ways to show off your home’s personality right at the front door. Don’t be afraid to get creative with your organization!
