The first thing we did was move the bicycle from the entryway into the basement. I don't think we're technically allowed to do this, but there are other bicycles downstairs. We also brought down our sled and a large humidifer. Basically everything else we own is in the apartment.
The entryway is currently a staging ground for moving stuff either into the car or into my office. At some point we're going to have to decide on the following:
- Two benches or one bench plus baskets and stools?
- More wall hooks. Should we go with more of the same (Ikea Leksvik) or something exciting?
- A high traffic runner
- A new area rug
- The wall behind the couch doesn't look right to me
- Maybe another shelf on the divider wall for our wireless speaker
I've spent too many hours on Apartment Therapy. Now I've learned that we need a more efficient landing strip. We're constantly forgetting hats and extra towels for daycare because they're never corralled together. We also don't have a place for mail, so the little table ends up overflowing with paper.
How have you handled entry spaces? Is there a system that works for you?
