Types Of Entryway Shelves
The entryway of your home is the first impression visitors get of the interior. Entryway shelves can make a drab entryway more attractive as well as more functional. Many designs exist, and they will range in size, materials, features, and cost. Many varieties of entryway shelves will also feature hooks for hanging coats, while others may be more of a cubby style in which hats and gloves can be stowed. Other shelves may be very simple designs that are little more than wooden boards affixed to a wall to act as storage for any number of items. A homeowner considering installing shelves in an entryway will first need to take careful measurements of the space to determine how large of a shelf will be possible.
Some entryway shelves come as a kit that includes other pieces of entryway furniture such as an independent bench that can be placed on the floor beneath the shelf. These kits may include other pieces as well, such as coat hooks or hangers, wicker baskets that fit perfectly into cubbies in the bench or on the shelf, and other useful items. The quality of these kits will depend on the materials used for constructing them; wood is the most common choice of material, though metal is also an option.
