Entryway Storage Ideas

Even though it's a place in the home that desperately needs it, it seems as though most homes rarely have enough entryway storage. Even those that have coat closets can often still use more. So if your foyer is lacking in storage check out these ideas for creating an efficient and organized entryway. 

Closets and Armoires 

If you have a coat closet there are ways to make the most of it.
Install hooks on the inside of the door for hanging bags or scarves.
If it has a shelf fill it with baskets designated for each member of the household (and label them). People can use them for storing gloves, scarves, or whatever else they frequently use.
If you don't have a coat closet and you've got the space, consider purchasing an armoire to hang coats in. It's great to be able to put coats and shoes in them and then close the door and hide them away.

Chest of Drawers 

A chest of drawers is a great piece of furniture to have in a foyer if you've got the room. Again, put baskets or dividers in the drawers for each family member to use. It will keep the drawers from becoming a jumbled mess of bags and accessories. 

Hooks and Coat Racks 

If space permits a coat rack can be a simple solution for placing coats, bags and scarves. If not, try hanging a series of hooks along the wall for hanging coats and bags. Make sure you've got enough to accommodate as many items as you regularly use. There's nothing worse than piling so many coats on top of each other that they keep falling off and onto the floor. 

Storage Bench 

A bench that has storage inside of it is a great piece for a foyer. People can sit on it when putting on their shoes, and lots of items can be stored inside. They're really great for hiding dirty shoes and boots. 


If there's really no space to put any kind of furniture consider installing some shelves on the wall. Again, use baskets to keep everything organized. The great thing about this system is that you can build vertically and use the upper part of the wall as well as the lower.
