An Organized Entryway

One of the reasons a post like this is so important is that too many people spend precious time searching for things like their keys and other items they need when leaving the house for a busy day. Creating entryway organization will solve this problem!

What you need for entryway organization

Organizing your entry hall is simple! You’ll need a place for:

  • Keys – use a hook system or a bowl if you have a table or shelf
  • Shoes – use hanging shoe storage for a tight space or shoe rack for the floor to create organization vs. just tossing the shoes on the floor
  • Jackets – hang jackets on hangers or create a hook system if your entryway is more like a hallway or mudroom
  • Bags – create a hook system for bags, but don’t overload this space with “storage.” This area should be for items that come/go on a daily basis. 

If you have a hall closet, use it. Hang jackets, use the top shelf for a couple of baskets to hold gloves/mittens/scarves or goggles, bathing suits, and sunscreen for warm-weather months (rotate these items, depending upon the season). If you have a larger closet, put shoes on the floor, side-by-side in an organized fashion, not just tossed in.

No hall closet, no problem

If you’re without a hall closet, consider a coat rack and concealed shoe storage (a piece of furniture or something that hangs on the wall) that looks like a piece of furniture OR a bench and shelf up above where you can hang jackets and put other items.

Place a key rack on the wall near the front door. I would suggest not hanging this directly next to the door and keep it up at your eye level so little ones can’t get hold of keys. You’ll also want a place to put your bag (whether handbag, work bag, etc.), which could go in the closet on a hook.

Hooks are lifesavers

Add hooks to the inside of the closet door at kid level so you can have a bag for your little one(s). Once kids reach two- to three-years-old, you can teach them to hold their own bag and where to put it when you arrive home.

Avoid placing items in the entry hall that are not used on a daily basis. Utilize this space for coats/jackets, shoes, backpacks, stroller, etc. In other words, not for permanently stored items such as photos, electronics boxes that you need to hold on to for the warranty period, etc.

Tweetable Think of the home entryway as a container for your personal belongings you take with you each day. @staceycrew #homeorganization

Keep in mind too, that if you use another door most often to enter/exit the home, set up your “entryway” there. You want to put things where you use them, so organize these belongings next to the door you use most frequently.

    Did you create this website yourself or did
    you hire someone to do it for you? Plz respond as I’m looking to create my own blog and would like to know where u got this from.
    thank you

  35. Write more, thats all I have to say. Literally,
    it seems as though you relied on the video to
    make your point. You obviously know what youre talking about, why throw
    away your intelligence on just posting videos to your site when you could be giving us something informative to read?

  40. Today, I went to the beachfront with my children. I found
    a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and
    said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She placed the
    shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear.
    She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is completely off topic but I
    had to tell someone!

  49. I was curious if you ever considered changing the page layout of your
    blog? Its very well written; I love what youve got to
    say. But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with
    it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
