Your homes entryway is the first area of your home you and guests see. This often means that it becomes a catch-all for various items as well. To help you in keeping this area clean and organized you can enlist in the help of a self storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO to free up some needed entryway storage space. You can also use the tips we have gathered below to keep your entryway clean and organized.


Recognize your Exit and Entry Habits

Depending on what your current routine is it will determine how you should set up your entryway or mudroom. Assess everyone’s needs when they enter and exit your home. Look at the current clutter that is surrounding your entryway. This will tell you what you need in terms of organization. Installing shoe cubbies or hooks for backpacks is always helpful.


Make it Seasonally Appropriate

If you tend to have winter coats taking up the majority of the available space in your entryway it might be time to think seasonally. Storing your winter coats and accessories during the summer in a self storage unit at Elite Storage in Lafayette, CO can free up a lot of the storage space you may need. Make sure you make the necessary preparations before placing your winter clothes in storage.


Go Vertical

Floor space is often very limited when it comes to entryways and mudrooms. You can easily go vertical with your storage by installing shoe cubbies, hooks, shelves, and even cupboards. Take into consideration what your family will need exactly when it comes to their daily routine. If you have little ones at home, consider placing hooks at a lower level for them to store their own coats and backpacks. You can provide even more organized storage options with bins to keep all the small accessories together.


Combat Moisture

Now that you have conquered the clutter on your floor you will want to make sure you can keep it slip-free as well. Having necessary shoe storage as well as a matt in front of your door can help you to keep your floor free of moisture, especially during the spring and winter months.


Having a clutter free entryway will create an open and inviting atmosphere for your family and your guests.
