How to Create a Stylish and Organized Entryway

Beth Rice 24/08/2017

Your beach bag was all you needed for months. Now, with back-to-school events and the holidays approaching, it’s time to properly equip your entryway for the fall and winter. We can help you prepare for extracurricular activities, changes in the weather, and holiday events with Amish-made furniture that will keep your entryway or mudroom stylish, organized, and working for you.

With the foyer being the introduction to your home, you want this space to achieve three things:

  • Show off your personal style.
  • Keep items organized.
  • Provide a comfortable place to sit if the space allows.

Start with a Storage Bench

Foyer benches are usually built to be multitaskers. Look for one that showcases your style while offering a comfy place to sit and plenty of storage space that will help keep your entryway tidy.

The Amish Westfield Mission Storage Bench has a place to sit and change your shoes. Tuck them away in the spacious compartment under the bench.

Comfy and inviting, the French country style Amish Lattice Weave Storage Bench comes with baskets beneath the seat to stow your purse. The drawers that line the top are perfect for wallets, keys, and the dog’s leash.

Perfect for an active family, the transitional style Amish Baltimore Entryway Bench with Storage offers a place to sit, hooks, baskets, a mirror, and cubbies for maximum organization.

Be Sure to Have Hooks

If you don’t have room for a bench seat, consider adding a hall tree or coat rack. With hooks that will help keep bags and outerwear off the floor, sofa, or kitchen table, they are great for storage and organization.

The Amish Mission Hall Tree has a revolving top that makes it easy to grab bags and jackets when on the go.

Get the storage space you need in a small mudroom or foyer with the Amish Hardwood Hall Tower. Use the hooks found inside and outside of the tower for anything you need to hang. Store wallets, keys, and jewelry in the three drawers near the base.

Stay organized and on schedule with the mission style Amish Morgan Clock Cabinet. This timekeeper features hidden storage behind the clock movement and drawers at the base.

Consider a Hall Table/Chair Combo

If there aren’t school-aged children in the picture or you don’t need extra storage, a hall table and chair might be more your speed. Add a lamp, mirror, or artwork to enhance the space. Reflect the current season with fresh flowers or holiday themed décor.

Pair the Queen Anne Hall Table by Keystone with the Amish Lancaster Queen Anne Dining Chair for a fine formal foyer.
