Your doorway is the first place you enter and exit your home so maximize its space. And minimize clutter.
The first obvious is the door mat. Duh. Don’t want muddy paws, both yours and your pet’s, ruining your nice entryway.
Second is coat and key rack. Whatever, it’s the spot where you can immediately grab your coat going out or hang it coming in. Grab your keys going out or hang them coming in. That’s where you also hang your hat, umbrella, dog leash and whatever daily items you use.
Next is have a small trash or recycling container right there at the entryway. Make sure it’s small and nice looking so you don’t have a big ugly blue recycling container. You grab your mail and all of those ads that you immediately see and don’t want, you just toss them in the container and it’s already out of your way.
Another mail organizing tip for the front way is to create two spots for the other mail. Use a shelf or a small/thin accent table or drawer cabinet next to your door.
One spot or stack is for the very important such as bills. That’s if you’re still paying bills through the mail. The other spot or stack is for ‘you’re going to read’ just right now. Like the furniture catalogs or magazines you subscribe. Again, that’s if you still do those in paper form.
Have a mirror right there. Oh, the vanity but you need to make sure you’re presentable on your way out and in.
A lanch pad creates a set mechanism for a clutter free home mindset and design to immediately place things in order and out of the way as soon as you leave and return to your home.
Just another Shop RTO home lifestyle tip.
