My small apartment has an especially tiny entryway. Entering my apartment, you’re met with a heap of sneakers, some reusable shopping bags, and a few homeless items strewn about. Well, that was before this mini makeover! Now, I have an organization system fit for a small space.
It took me a few months to decide what I was going to do with the small space. I’d decided to leave the space free of furniture so that it wouldn’t feel cluttered. I realized, though, that the space needs some structure, storage, and organization to keep it from feeling junky and overwhelming when you enter.
Since I’m home, I decided it was the perfect time to create that structure. Using a cabinet that I’d previously been using in another space and a very on-brand storage crate, I quickly upgraded my space.

Tips for small space entryway decor
Measure your space! Sometimes I’ll be in the car and not get specifics with measurements, but for the space I made sure to measure the entryway and take out those measurements into consideration when shopping.
Items that do double duty
My cabinet plays A few roles in the entryway. It’s both the cabinet for household items and also acts as my entryway catch-all for things like keys and my wallet. I also have a mirror in my entryway that has a shelf, which holds sunglasses for easy access on my way out.
Tie your entryway into your home
Entryways can sometimes look like an afterthought. Incorporate your design into your entryway for a cohesive look that will make you happier as you walk in at the end of the day.
Utilize various levels
Make use of wall space to hang items to get them off the floor. Small spaces can really look cluttered when things pile up on the floor.
