The entry area in any home is often the space that sets the tone. An entry area can be traditional, bold, and intriguing, or lean towards a more minimal and calming aesthetic. Whatever your space says about who you are or the vibe you are trying to create in your home, every entry area needs functionality.
After a long day at work or a weekend away on break, the entry area is usually where we dump our coats, shoes, and everything else in our pockets. If you live in New York City, then you know that these “foyers” are tiny and narrow hallways that desperately need storage that is not bulky. At Lucky Pearl Interiors, we often renovate small apartments, and we love the pieces below for their functionality, style, and, most importantly, their affordable price point.
Tidy Up – All Shoes:
The number one issue that we often encounter is an entryway overflowing with loose shoes, boots, and slippers. We love the solutions below because they are not deep and therefore allow the entry area to have a clear walking path. The best part is that they offer tons of storage for shoes.
Drop It – Catch Alls:
The shoe storage options above have some surfaces where you can place a tray or two to store mail, keys, and loose change. We have included below a few functional options for these bits. For those storage units that lack this feature, we have listed in the next section options that are lovely.
Hang It – Hooks:
If you live in the North East, then you know that for six months out of the year, every entryway turns into the place where multiple outwear options reside. There are jackets, coats, parkas, hats, scarves and that is just in the fall. It gets even more intense during the winter months. The hooks below offer great functionality at a great price.
At LPI, we love to highlight the entry area, and if we can, we include furnishings like those below to bring in warmth, interest, and individuality to the room.
Share your entry area with us; we would love to see how you decorate your space.
Until next time!
