Manage Entryway Clutter

A great way to manage entryway clutter is to look for areas around your front door (or garage door if that’s where you enter the house) where you can “go vertical” and add hooks and shelves to the wall to get personal items up off the floor, creating a zone for each person so they know where their things go. This board and batten entryway from Sada Lewis is a great example of reclaiming lost space, the wall right by their front door, to create a mini mudroom concept. It certainly doesn’t need to be this fancy or involved of a project, but incorporating some basic hooks and simple shelves can achieve the same idea.

Shoes are probably the biggest clutter culprit near an entryway. IKEA makes wonderful slim line shoe storage that goes flush against the wall and holds many pairs of shoes! At an affordable price point, this is a great investment for the whole family.
