When you walk into your front door is there a space to drop off your purse, keys, coats and shoes? If you’re feeling that your entryway is too small to make functional, these spaces will be sure to inspire you to update your entryway this weekend!

shelf-shoes-after-683x1024If you want to keep your shoes off the ground, Fresh Crush has a modern solution! This copper shoe rack is a great option to keep your small entryway organized as well as not too crowded! By also hanging a floating shelf and a key rack, you are able to store all your items in one space without taking up too much space.


cathy and tony-3Do you live in a cold climate that has you putting on and taking off your jacket when you come home? A line of hooks are a necessity! Apartment Therapy features this cozy house that utilizes a small space in a very smart and practical way. Also, did you know that hanging a mirror in a small space makes it feel bigger? Give it a try.


df5b9cec735996fbc0533ead02b60bf7Create a rustic entryway by using old crates, reclaimed wood boards and hooks! A Beautiful Mess transformed her entryway by stacking a few crates and hanging a few photos to add a personal touch to it. This space can easily be changed with the seasons, so when the rain boots and scarfs go away, flip flops and sun hats can take their place.


jordan-ferney-apartment-san-francisco-small-apartment-tips-hallwayDo you have a little one in your home? Teach them the importance of keeping their space clean by hanging hooks at their height. This will teach them to be responsible for their own items as well as being able to reach their things when they’re ready to leave the house.


bob120231-004An alternative to hooks are knobs! They do the exact same thing and add a bit of a modern and sleek look to your wall. Another great feature to this entryway by Det Dia, is the small hanging cubbies. Out of sight, out of mind is a great way to go when you’re trying to keep a low profile entryway.


MichaelDiamondBrooklynTownhouse20Do you have a cumbersome wall heater in the way? A great way to work around this issue is to hang a floating shelf! Desire To Inspire did not allow their heater win and is still able to store tons of easy access items in their entryway with the addition of this shelf.


488fb681babf4cbc89fd64d2c1c4d5cc This entryway incorporates everything we’ve touched on into one space! Hooks, baskets, floating shelf, and stacked crates. By keeping everything tucked against the wall, this organized space can be executed in almost any narrow area.

There are so many ways to design your entryway to make the most out of your small space. We hope that these gorgeous spaces have inspired you to re-think your space and get to re-arranging this weekend!

DSC_0849Another great option for inner cabinet door storage is by rolling out some cork board and adding a few lightweight hooks. Here you can hang measuring cups/spoons, your favorite recipes and even pictures. This allows for easy access to items that you hate digging around for.


baking-sheet-organizationWho else has all their baking sheets piled on top of each other on a bottom cupboard. I know I certainly do! Two Twenty One uses an office paper sorter that allows for plenty of storage for tons of baking sheets!

We hope that these storage saving solutions will inspire you to clean and organize your kitchen this week! It’s always more enjoyable to cook in a sleek, organized space!




Installing a Tree Wall Decal using Center Hinge Method

  • January 19, 2015

Some of the most popular items that leave our shop are our line of Tree Decals. Perfect for nurseries, living rooms, or bedrooms they add a unique touch to any room’s decor and instantly catch the eye of all who enters.

Our latest video demonstration describes the steps for installing a multiple piece tree decal, or any multiple piece decal for that matter using our center hinge method again.

Although not hard to do, multiple piece decals and trees can require more time to get all of the pieces installed. Because all of the leaves are placed by hand, it allows for your design to be entirely unique to your creativity. So grab a friend for help and have fun with your new project!

Take a look!
