A freestanding wooden bench offers a surprisingly ample amount of storage space for a tidy, if compact, entry. A series of storage baskets tuck snugly underneath to corral clutter, while a small table provides space for a lamp and drop area for keys. The plump row of pillows on the bench makes this area a cozy place to get ready for outdoor weather.
Love the branch hooks and the colour.
Simple drop zone.
Converting a closet into a mini drop zone.
Create a drop zone in your entry way using your stairway.
Keeping Your House Picked Up: MOVE It! Work fast to get the job done. Set the timer 15 minutes and tell the family "we are going to have a "FAMILY 15 minute house PICKUP BOOGIE" Blast the music, show them how to move fast, make it fun. We have picked up an entire house in less then 15 minutes by doing this.
For a limited room, creating a "drop zone" for shoes, bags, keys, coats, phones, etc.
Be a Good Sport Teeming with sports gear, this mudroom's goal is to simplify life for an active family. A bench under the window gives youngsters a place to plant themselves while suiting up for activities. In addition to the open lockers, wicker baskets hold equipment and can be tucked into locker niches.
Storage built into wall in mud room; some kind of "drop zone"
Great for entry way with stairs. The little nook for sitting around the corner is fantastic, and the lockers with drawers provide a drop zone for backpacks, coats, and gloves.
An Organized Family Mount mail boxes, file holders, or matching baskets to a wall near the back door. Assign each family member a container and fill with essential items. Train kids to drop mail and important papers in the appropriate containers. Leave useful items for children -- such as lunch money, signed documents, or umbrellas -- and encourage them to check their container before leaving for the day.
Hooks at the right height for each family member. Have one for the dogs too. It can house their collars, leads etc. Good if you have not got the space.
