With a Console. If there was one piece of furniture that is destined for the foyer it’s the console table. Defined by its long and narrow shape, a console table squeezes into narrower spaces and is perfect for an entry because of its design. Pair it with a statement mirror or work of art, then add a bouquet of seasonal blooms to make your foyer welcoming.
Clever Closet Take advantage of every bit of basement space by assigning a metal storage unit to house accessories. Restore order by stacking seldom-used items, such as glassware and extra china, into zippered bins on shelves and clearly labeling them with decorative tags. Two trays placed beneath the unit provide the perfect spot for a row of work boots and shoes
Keep Within Reach - Position a bench with an upholstered cushion one step from the shower to provide a convenient place to dry off. Look for (or build) a bench with a low drawer (or lift top is space is limited) for easy access to extra towels, shampoo, and shower gel so that these items can be easily reached, even from the shower stall.

Entry with recessed niche that offers a place to kick off shoes or drop off a bag. A coat closet on each side ensures clutter stays hidden from sight, maintaining the clean look of the entry. Dark slate tile provides a nice contrast to the white woodwork, boasts ample traction, and conceals any dirt left behind from shoes.
