Entrances are often small and one of the main problems in this area is organization and storage. One of the most functional and practical ideas is entryway filing – what can be easier to keep the space organized? All you need is to choose a suitable bench that suits your room style. There are many models with storage space organized in different ways. Let’s look at them.
Open memory banks
If you don’t want a bulky piece, choose a bench with a shelf or multiple shelves. You can use any shelf and top to store umbrellas, hats, shoes, and other stuff. There are creative benches with wire shelves, built-in benches with open shoe compartments, and creative color-blocked benches with each shelf in its own color. Even if there isn’t a shelf, put your shoes under the bench or clip one yourself, that’s it!
Benches with hidden storage space
Opt for a bench with hidden storage space to make your space look neat and stylish. The most popular piece is a rectangular bench with storage space inside that can be accessed through the seat. Such a piece may or may not be padded, and such an idea is a 100% win, it is comfortable, cute and functional. Another way is by rocking drawers, which is also very popular. There are many benches with drawers – baskets, wire baskets, and just regular ones, and if you can’t find the right piece, make it yourself. Another idea is to just put a couple of baskets or drawers under your usual bench and voila, you have a ready-made storage bench on hand!
Benches with open and hidden storage space
Combine both open shelves and drawers in your bank to maximize storage space and see how many things can fit inside! And again: if there isn’t a real piece that you like, just do it yourself, do it smart! This is a great idea when you don’t have other furniture in the entryway and still need plenty of storage space.
