If you have the space, built ins are a fantastic way to go.  They often offer tons of storage, a place to sit,  and they look amazing.

If built ins aren’t for your space, you can find other storage and seating options that work well for entryways.

Seating is a must in my entryway.  I am constantly switching out my work shoes for a pair of runners to hit the gym or go for a run.  Having some kind of bench in an entryway is a great place to lace up those Nikes.

Another important item for an entryway is a tabletop or shelf.  It is a great place to set down keys, cell phones, and wallets when you come through the door.

Some entryways are incredibly narrow and won’t house a table.  Skinny shelves are a terrific solution for these small entryways.

It’s also important to have a place for all of your winter items such as scarves and mittens.  Dressers are the perfect place to store these items.

If a dresser isn’t right for your space, baskets or bins are a great place to house these items.

Lastly, don’t forget that umbrella stand!  There are some gorgeous stands available to keep your umbrellas stored neatly.  This one is from Wayfair.
