No matter if you have a non-existent entryway or a spacious foyer, this is one of those spots where clutter seems to pile up without anyone even noticing. Lucky for us, we can always count on IKEA as an endless source of inspiration for team clutter control. Add one of these hacks or upgrades to your entryway and you'll gain some extra storage space that also makes a great first impression.

Hang handled baskets in the entryway to store sports gear or umbrellas where you can easily grab them as you head out the door. The seagrass FLADIS basket would work well here, and the stylists at Livet Hemma labeled the ones above with painted cardboard tags.

What do you get when you combine some AKURUM cabinets, APPLAD doors, and a big strip of wood? A 14-foot-long floating credenza—and an impressive amount of storage space. Read how the one above was constructed on The Brick House.

An inexpensive stained wood top and pretty brass drawer pulls make this long set of BESTA cabinets look incredibly classy. This one from Made by Girl stretches 12 feet long, but if you have a small space, you can get the same look using fewer cabinets.
