Whether we like it or not, the first thing guests see when they walk into our home is our entryway. This, alone, is enough reason to keep it organized—however, cleaning the foyer can be a tough challenge as it is a potential pile-up spot for clutter from people going in and out of the house. To help you out, we've listed down a few helpful tips that can help you bring order to your landing strip. Check them out below: 

1. Add a welcome mat.

Aside from giving guests and family members a warm greeting, a welcome mat is crucial for wiping dirty shoes or catching water from coats on rainy days. Pick something in a dark color to help in concealing dirt and stains. 

2. Put out a few catchalls.

A tray or a bowl to dump your keys, coins and other pocket knickknacks is essential in every foyer to keep clutter from taking over your console table. Lay out a giant tray to share or several coasters for each member of the household.

3. Hang a few hooks.

No matter how beautiful your foyer decor is, it can be instantly ruined by clothes laying over the chairs or on the floors. Having a ready set of hooks on the wall motivates co-dwellers and guests to drape their outerwear on them, instead of setting them down wherever they like. 

4. Get built-in cubbyholes.

If you have enough space for it, getting individual cubbies built for each person you live with can make a huge difference in minimizing clutter. For those who don’t want to shell out for construction, separate baskets or bins where people can keep their stuff works, too.   

5. Add a statement mirror.

Mirrors may not be an organizing tool, but it has the power to pull your entryway décor together—it reflects light that helps make the space look bigger and it exudes easy elegance like no other. It’s great for last-minute touch-ups before heading out the door, too!
