What’s An Entry Unit And Why Should You Have One?

  • Blog

An entry unit can be an extremely useful part of your home if used correctly. But what is an entry unit? It’s a more general term for something with a lot of names, like a mudroom, foyer, vestibule, or entryway. All of these things are slightly different but have a similar function. They are an area near the entrance or exit of a building.

What are these areas good for? Well, they are an important aspect of the organization in the house. Being the first stop when you enter your home and the last place before you leave it, this area can be utilized for lots of useful purposes. If you’re interested in learning about why and how you should be using this part of your home, then read on!

First Step To Organization

The entry unit is often the first step to the organization of your home since it is the first area you enter! There are a lot of things that you will be bringing from outside of the home that you don’t want in your more personal living spaces. This often includes articles of clothing like shoes and coats. Depending on the size of the space and storage options available, this can also be a good spot to keep umbrellas, keys, booster seats, sports bats and rackets, and more! Having the entry unit to keep these things in means more space for organization in other areas of the home while also having a convenient location for many of these important items.

Keep Your Home Clean

In addition to being a convenient place to hold all these items, it also prevents you from bringing them further into the home. Just got home from a day in the rain? The entry unit is a great place to keep those muddy and wet things, preventing the floors in the rest of the house from taking on that dirt and water. Localizing this potential mess to the entry unit area makes cleaning up after that mess much easier.
