A landing strip

It is what the American's call an area to put things in as you come in through the door.  Now we do not have a hall, but we have naturally developed our own landing strip.  I think that it is important for the entrance of your home to look welcoming and I was really missing my Christmas Wreath, so I made a spring bunting and felt flower wreath to replace it.

In our home as you come in the front door there is the stairs and an entrance to the sitting room, but no hall area to speak off.

So we try to make the most of a compact area.  I want the boys to make sure that they hang up their coats and put their gloves and hats away, so it was important to have low hooks to make it easy for them and the basket means they can just pop them in.  If their gloves and hats are wet then they leave them on the radiator.

They also come in and put their school shoes in the cabinet. or again if they are wet, they pop them under the radiator.

When MadDad gets home from work he always empties the pockets from his suit, so having a basket makes sense for him.  He uses it for his phone, keys, wallet etc.

It doesn't always look tidy, this is what it looked like last night after getting home from school

    1. Thanks, it is much easier to keep tidy

  2. My goodness, you are organised! Makes absolute sense. I have a very useful porch for welly boots, outside horsey jackets (bit smelly). The most useful thing I have inside the backdoor is a hook thingey for my keys. Has saved lots of mad minutes looking for them before I leave for work! Tee hee hee.

    1. I wish we had a larger area, but with it being small I have to be organised
