Organize Your Entryway

At Sturbridge Yankee Workshop we want to help you and your home get organized and keep it that way. Depending on the season and the weather where you live, we know your needs change throughout the year. Bringing things in from the outside when it's cold and back out again when it gets warmer tends to leave a bit of a mess behind. Often after the holidays we are apt to feel that our homes need more organization, but perhaps you are lacking the storage space. Whatever the reason, we have all been there. With the help of Sturbridge Yankee Workshop entryway organizing solutions, simplifying your life has never been easier.

Take a Seat

If you have the space, make it easier for yourself and visiting guests to take a seat while removing shoes or boots in the entryway. Benches can work for any size entryway as they are available in a variety of sizes to suit the shape of most rooms. Benches that double as storage make your job easier as you are gaining two storage and organization solutions for the price of one.

Upholstered benches offer a more elegant feel while solid wood options stick to their country roots. You can always switch out the bench pad, too, to reflect the season or your changing style.

No matter the style you choose, your guests will appreciate the chance to sit for a bit while coming in from the elements, and you will appreciate the ease with which your entryway can be organized.

The First Impression

Get those coats off the bench and up onto a strong and sturdy coat rack. Create a focal point for instant impact with strong colors in your wall art or in a rug. Patterned rugs with durable qualities are easy to clean and add hints of color and vibrancy to your floors. Entryways often make the first impression, so make guests and visitors feel welcome and excited to see the rest of your house, with an impressively stylish (and organized!) entryway.

Group It and Gather It

Rather than having just one spot for all things (gloves, shoes, umbrellas, etc.) to be dropped upon entry to your home, use small containers with different purposes.

For example, you can put loose change in a small bowl while setting your phone, keys and wallet in a tray. Stamps and miscellaneous materials can be placed in a little box, tucked away from view until needed. Display each container together so that they look purposefully tidy and organized when you view them.

Lift It Up

Is your entryway or mudroom floor a bit crowded? Look to your walls for usable space! Hang wall sconces for extra light, shelves for spare storage and mirrors with organizational properties to replace a traditional table. Wall lamps are a wonderful option for entryways as floor space is often limited, and you may not be able to fit a table for table lamp display. Wire baskets mounted to the wall are also great storage options that don't take up too much space.
