The entrance to your house is a hardworking space! It has to be ready to accommodate the comings & goings of all of the members of the family plus the stuff they are taking in & out.
So it makes sense to spend a little time at the change of each season to evaluate what needs to stay & what needs to go. And then to make the necessary tweaks or changes that will allow you to enter & exit with more ease.
Here are some solutions that could get your entry, mudroom, or the transition space in the garage ready for all that life throws at it!
Add boundaries for the items that need to live in this space. Here the mail & the shoes are contained with a tray, baskets, and the rug.
Send the junk mail & extra papers to recycling & then use a tray, a small basket, or a clipboard to collect the mail & papers that need extra attention.
A bowl or hook can create a designated spot for keys- no more hunting!!!
The items that are used daily can be collected with a basket or a space on a shelf.
Hooks on the wall or in the transition space in the garage will keep things from piling up on the floor.
Boot trays & rugs are a great reminder of where footwear should live & help to keep any dirt or mess confined to one space.
These are just some of the ways that creating an entry space with intention can make daily life feel easier.
I’d love to hear the ideas that are working for YOU!
Be in touch if your entry is causing headaches and you aren’t sure out how to make it better.
