10 Different Ways to Organize an Entryway

The entryway is one of a home's most important spots. It's the first thing people see when they walk in, it's the place where clutter can most easily collect if not controlled, and it's a place where you can make a big impact on the health of your home. Entryways are usually composed of just a few things: a spot for coats and shoes, a mail sorting station, a trash can and maybe some extra storage if you have room, and a doormat.
