Deco in & out. Caroline Mesnil attacks the storage in the entrance.

Deco in & out. How to optimize the entrance of his house? A real headache that attacks the journalist Caroline Mesnil this week. Cupboard under the stairs, hooks and small baskets are the order of the day to make the entrance a room with maximized storage and no longer a large open storage.
The entrance is often a happy mess - shoes piled up, bags accumulated and keys loosely abandoned - and find a solution adequate storage, a real headache. Caroline Mesnil, Decorative columnist and editor-in-chief of Côté Ouest, explains how she managed to organize her entry. Closet under the stairs, coat hooks and tote baskets are at the rendezvous.
The explanation in video ...
With a full time job out of the house and kids, how do you say ... my entry is rather a storeroom. Once the door is over, everyone gets rid of the overweight of the day: schoolboy's blouses, school bags and sports bags for the little ones; tote bags, lesson bags and sports bags for adults; not to mention yellow coins, keys, business cards, laptops ... that quickly turn the scene into a giant pocket void. Everyone puts a little of what makes his daily but what reunites everyone and clutter the most it is ... the shoes! I do not know how it is at home but at home difficult not to stumble on a pair of sneakers! When they wear shoes again but when they do 45! So regularly it's the bottom of the fight. Before I got upset, I was screaming that it was exhausting to always repeat the same thing, then I tried the humor of the type "Are you breeding Nike now the darlings?" but nothing worked.
All our articles on the layout and decoration of the entrance.
So I decided to organize my entry. It's still the room that reflects the house, the one we see first when we pass your door. To make a good impression. The underside of the stairs has been equipped with a shoe closet, happiness! With a door of course. Which means that even if it's a little mess inside, at least we can not see anything! Against a wall, I put two sets of hooks, one at less than one meter from the ground for the little arms, the other at the top for the big ones and still above a series of pretty baskets, one each, no jealousy, where to off-load scarves, gloves, hats ... So it's a wall of coats. From now on, on the large coat rack, we only hang bags canvas, first it's more decorative, then we always know where to find when we need it. A key-board, of the type found in the hotels, also took place near the door. And my console is now ... viiiiide! Embellished with a scented candle, sometimes with flowers. Only sprain in this almost perfect order, the pile of mail. Because before each paper file in the secretary of the show ... but there is another story of storage!
