Of course, a lot of the shoe rack ideas that we showed you so far focus on one type of design: the shoe cart. This could very well be one of the first things anyone thinks of when building the entryway shelves and it could be a great way to simplify your home and to make the most of that space that it has.

Of course, sometimes it’s best to just go along with the current trends and stick with something popular even if colours are your best friend.

So if you think painting your front door is not exactly for you, maybe you’ll want to try something similar.
Living in a small place with limited space can be a real struggle especially when the answer is opposite; instead of building an all-in-one entryway perhaps something better and more practical could do the trick. In any case, small or hidden spaces can be beautiful if you know how to take advantage of them. We suggest using simple shelves and organizers to take advantage of this space feature.
Paint the front door a bold and vibrant color and then hang some hanging plants on either side. If you don’t plan on filling the garage wall with pots or planters, you can repurpose a pallet or simply buy a ready-made shelf and install it vertically. Actually, you can hang some lovely pots from it just by taking the bottom of it and placing a few screws.
When you don’t have a separate room for the front door, you can still turn the door into a great storage piece. For example, you could fill it with potted plants. The idea comes from lovegrowswild. The supplies needed include some heavy-duty craft wood, ceramic tile, paint, a bunch of hooks and a toothpicks.
