Entryways are often small and one of the main problems in this space is organization and storage. One of the most functional and practical ideas are storage benches for entryways – what can be easier to keep the space organized? All you need is to choose a proper bench that fits your space style, and there are lots of models with storage organized in various ways, let’s have a look at them.
Benches With Open Storage
If you don’t want a bulky piece, choose a bench with a shelf or several shelves – you may use every shelf and top for storing umbrellas, hats, shoes and other stuff. There are creative benches with wire storage compartments, built-in benches with open shoe compartments and creative color blocked benches with each shelf of its own color. Actually, even if there’s no shelf, put your shoes under the bench or attach one yourself, that’s it!

Benches With Hidden Storage
To make your space look neat and stylish, opt for a bench with hidden storage. The most popular piece is a rectangular bench with storage space inside that can be reached taking the seat up. Such a piece may be upholstered or not and such an idea is a 100% win, it’s comfy, cute and functional. Another way to go is rocking drawers, which is also very popular. There are lots of benches with drawers – baskets, wire baskets and just regular ones, and if you can’t find a proper piece, DIY it. One more idea is just placing some baskets or drawers under your usual bench, and voila, you have a ready storage bench at hand!
