In our last home, we used a simple floating shelf to hold some decor items and our keys and built rustic storage bins
to hold hats, gloves, etc. Everything else was tucked inside our small entry closet, keeping the space clean and usable.
Use vertical space to organize smaller oft-used items such as keys and gloves or add extra cubbies and storage above your heads. A bench or chair adds seating for putting on shoes, and you can tuck a bin or two underneath to keep them out of the way. And if you have a console table in the entry, you can nest the bench and the bins underneath that. If you have a closet, use it to its fullest potential. And don't forget to use the back of the door!
