Organize Your Entryways Anderson SC

Most of us don't have that luxury of space, and our homes are not designed with large, separate entry areas in front and back. The result is that often, our hallways are extensions of main living areas, or, if separate, are within view of living rooms and kitchens. Thus the need for the all-purpose hallway: a practical space for donning or removing outerwear, dumping keys, mail, and shopping bags or other packages, and dispensing with umbrellas and rain gear.

Organize Your Entryways

Your hallway may be all purpose, but organization is still possible.

We've all seen movies or read books about great mansions with enormous front hallways reaching up two or three stories, filled with paintings, and leading – across a great, empty expanse – to curving staircases. And for back hallways, the term " mud room " was coined for pre-entry rooms dedicated to stripping off gardening or riding gear before entering the house proper.

Most of us don't have that luxury of space, and our homes are not designed with large, separate entry areas in front and back. The result is that often, our hallways are extensions of main living areas, or, if separate, are within view of living rooms and kitchens. Thus the need for the all-purpose hallway: a practical space for donning or removing outerwear, dumping keys, mail, and shopping bags or other packages, and dispensing with umbrellas and rain gear. All this, and managing to look attractive and welcoming, too – that's the tall order most hallways are expected to fill.
