Make the Holidays Easier with an Organized Entryway

The holiday season is a busy time. Between running out for gifts and supplies and welcoming guests for holiday parties, the entryway of your home will get a lot of traffic. A few simple additions will keep this area neat, organized and looking great through the New Year.

At a minimum, the simple addition of a coat rack – either a free-standing version or wall-mounted hooks – can make a huge difference in creating some order to your entry.

Wet exterior pathways and falling leaves can make a mess of your shoes this time of year. Adding a bench near the entry and a place to store shoes can keep the outdoor muck from being tracked all over the rest of the house.

A bowl or basket to contain your keys, phone, homework, or other items you need to quickly grab on your way out the door (and not spend 15 minutes searching for!) is a great addition even when space is tight.

Whether your entry is large or small, incorporating a few features to help keep it organized will go a long way towards making the busyness of the holidays easier to manage.
