Have you ever hesitated on the threshold of entering a home? Perhaps the entryway was narrow or dimly lit. Or, maybe you had to step over several pairs of boots before maneuvering around what appeared to be a coat rack and a number of other items taking up a lot of space.

When visiting other’s homes, many of us are tuned in to that first impression at the entrance.

In the day-to-day busyness of life, it can be difficult to keep things neat and manage the family’s belongings in an entryway or mudroom. One may not even notice that the space is really dark due to a lack of windows or outdated lighting. The area may become “invisible” to the homeowner because they likely “breeze through” and don’t spend much time in the space.

Although brightening and enlarging a space seem to be significant design issues, they may be solved with a little creativity in this instance. Built-in storage units – the perfect hideaway for shoes, hats, umbrellas, dog leashes, paw towels and more – may be customized to the most modest of areas. Storage drawers and shelves do not require major renovation and may be installed quickly by our Hired Hands team. Brighten the space by swapping out or adding additional light fixtures. Or, increase natural lighting by incorporating an extra window or two if your layout allows. You could also consider adding sidelights to your door or even skylights (we can help). Other improvements to consider? A fresh coat of paint on the walls and trim.

Creating that bright, neat and sophisticated entryway or mudroom is just a phone call away!
