In cold weather, the number of coats, hats, scarves, and gloves increases to an alarming degree, severely cluttering up the entryway. Most people start peeling off those outer layers the minute they come into your home. Having plenty of hanging space with an assortment of hooks will eliminate dropping jackets to the floor and piling soggy hats and gloves on the nearest surface. High and low hooks will make it easy for the tall and the small to hang up their things. In wet weather especially, you need enough hooks so that coats don’t get layered on top of each other. They will not dry properly, creating a whole other problem.
In a class by itself for messing up the house is muddy footwear. In winter, shoes and boots are perpetually wet and muddy, and treads packed with mud can deposit that dirt all over the house. Entryway design should include storage specifically to control winter’s footwear, with integrated benches, shelves, and cubbies so shoes and boots can leave the mess at the door.
Entryways also tend to collect random things, some things that should be elsewhere in the house. Shopping bags, sports equipment, books, purses, laptops, umbrellas, sunglasses, coffee mugs, toys, and phones can all add to the clutter. Design options let you choose what works best for you. It can include baskets, bins, drawers, shelves, or a bench in your entryway to prove organized storage to keep track of everyone’s everything!
