Every season requires distinctly different needs from your entryway. Since this is usually the first room that guests also see, it's important to keep the space not only organized, but attractive as well. Check out these tips for transitioning this room from Summer to Autumn.
- Stow away any Summer sandals, beach towels, or outdoor supplies that may be lingering in your entry using sturdy storage containers. Stash the containers in your garage, attic, or closet.
- Add a boot tray to your entry. This way, you'll be prepared for muddy Fall weather before it strikes.
- Take heavier jackets out of storage. Either hang in an entry closet or install additional closet hooks to accommodate them.
- Consider adding storage baskets for hats, scarves, and gloves.
- An umbrella stand is a logical choice for rainier climates and will help to prevent wetness on floors.
- Invest in a pretty indoor-outdoor rug. They're relatively inexpensive and can be easily cleaned.
- A warm paint color will renew your entryway and also lend coziness to your home. Try a rich yellow or mellow orange.
- Prepare for cooler temperatures by DIYing a draft blocker for your entryway's windows and door.
- Add a bouquet of Autumn blooms to an entry table.
