Drop Zones: The Key to an Organized Home

Mudroom/Entryway Organizer

Do you find yourself constantly tripping over shoes, bags, and coats as soon as you walk in the door? Do you struggle to find your keys or wallet when you’re rushing out the door in the morning? If so, you’re not alone. Many homeowners (and renters!) struggle with keeping their entryways tidy and organized, which can lead to daily snags and outright frustration.

That’s where drop zones come in. To put it briefly, a drop zone is a designated area near the entrance of your home where you can drop off your belongings as soon as you come in the door. It’s a convenient and organized space built out of your entryway or your mudroom. They help you keep track of your everyday items so you can find them quickly and easily when you need them.

Here are just a few reasons why you might want a drop zone in your home:

  1. Streamline Your Morning Routine: If you’re always running late in the morning, a drop zone can help you get out the door faster. You can keep your keys on a hook or in a bowl, wallet in a secure lockbox, and other essentials like hats and jackets on hooks, so you’re not wasting time searching for them. Since everything is extremely close together, you are never going to struggle to find your morning essentials again! Game changer.
  2. Reduce Clutter: A drop zone can help keep your entryway tidy and clutter-free. You can keep shoes, bags, and coats in one designated area, so they’re not scattered all over the house. Depending on your space constraints you can also get away with extra storage drawers, cubes, sliding rails for hangers, or even a tall shoe rack! All of these optionals go a long way to reducing physical and brain clutter.
  3. Create a Welcoming Space: A well-designed drop zone can make your entryway more welcoming and inviting. Personal touches can take this area to the next level: a mirror, some artwork, or possibly some plants can make it a stylish area to get ready and come home to.
