Since the entryway is the first thing that guests notice in the house, it is seriously undervalued. Entryway, when thought cleverly can not only make your home appear prettier, but also add significant storage. Sure, you might have an unattractive entryway that is narrow, dark, or even small but with the right tips, you can make that area work!

Here are the 10 genius entryway storage ideas that will create a style statement in your home.

1. Get Rustic Baskets

Make that small entryway work with the help of a rustic basket. The rustic wired baskets fit into any tight corner easily, without making the area appear cramped. Moreover, the wired baskets make it easier to find what you need.

2. Rethink a Closet

If you are one of those lucky ones to have space in the entryway then a built-in closet is a great way to add storage. Just imagine, all your go-to essentials are stored in a space-saving cabinet in the entryway! Additionally, you can add wallpaper to conceal the closet.

3. Think Double Duty

If you have enough space in the entryway, create a storage cum sitting spot. In the above picture, the table turns into a spot to display art, whereas the stools add a sitting option. The hooks provide a spot to hang umbrellas, bags, and more.

4. Seating-cum-Storage

When space comes at a premium, think multipurpose! Opt for ottomans that double up as storage units.

5. Vintage Chic

In case you have one of those old dresser units lying idle in the storeroom, it is time you put it to work. Give it a fresh coat of paint and turn it into a vintage entryway storage unit! If you don’t have one, keep an eye on the local thrift store, we are sure you will find something to work with!

6. Cute Cubbies

If you have a small entryway that needs some quick storage solution, then cubbies are for you! Opt for freestanding cubbies that won’t take your valuable floor space, yet add storage to the entryway.

7. Save on Floor Space

In case you are looking to add some light storage in the entryway, then this hack is for you. Paste stick-on hooks near the entryway to hang keys, coats, umbrellas, and more. You can also opt for floating shelves to add some extra storage.

8. On the Bench

An inherited, or a flea-market bought bench can add storage in the entryway. All you need is a fresh coat of paint to make the piece work!

Happy decorating, folks!
