Entryway Accessories

There are countless times that you look forward to coming home. Imagine the feeling when you come home after a long day at work or from an extended vacation and are happy to see the comforts of your familiar space again. You probably also are ecstatic to arrive home after a long grocery shopping trip or a day out with the kids. Nearly every time you come home, you’re most likely carrying something. In the winter, you have your coats, jackets and snow boots, while in the summer you may be carrying your beach towels and totes. No matter the time of year, you always need a place to stow your shoes. Entryway organizational accessories are a great way to organize and streamline that important space in your home when you just walk in. Whether you have a foyer or just a small landing, we can help you organize this space so that the journey into your home is always an enjoyable and seamless one.


As you’re shopping entryway organizers with Pottery Barn, think about what your needs are when you walk in. If you’re normally carrying groceries or a few pieces of baggage, such as a lunch tote from work, you may want to consider an organizer that has a tabletop, so you have a spot to easily put things down when you walk in the door. If you typically wear a lot of accessories, such as hats, scarves and sunglasses, you may want to think of a piece that has a fair amount of hooks and other hardware, so you can both store and display some of your favorite accessories.


There are a lot of available units that can help streamline your space. If you have a few requirements for your entryway organizer, perhaps choose one that has hooks, a place to store items on top and shoe storage so that all of your basic needs are met. An organizer with both hooks and a mirror is a great idea, especially if you want to check your look one last time before you walk out the door. If you only have a few needs, perhaps choose singular hooks to hang jackets and coats. Another option is to build your own entryway organizer by adding pieces from the collection. This way, you can mix and match what your needs are, easily complementing your existing entryway decor. Some of the singular items you can peruse from a collection to make your own organized space include a shoe rack, coat tree and hooks. A shoe rack is a terrific idea, allowing you precise places to stow your shoes. Different styles also give you tabletop space to place items as you walk in the door. A coat tree is an alternative to having hooks in the wall for jackets or coats. You can also certainly add scarves, handbags and other accessories to its branches.


A clothes rack or small wardrobe also works well if you have a lot of coats and jackets to hang in the winter. Versatile and easy to move, place this piece in your bedroom or other room in the home during other months of the year. Other options include furniture with cubbyholes as well as shelving. A cubby organizer is a great way to store many different types of items, from shoes to sports equipment, and it’s also a great spot to store outdoor accessories. Shelving can easily be an entire, standing unit, or shelves mounted to the wall. Free-standing shelving offers you a place for storage within the shelves, and depending on their placement, you have plenty of space on top of the shelf to store decorative items or accessories you need as you come and go.
