Storage Solutions for your Entrance

Storage Solutions for your Entrance. Evelyn Eshun creates a custom solution for a client’s small, narrow front entry.


PROBLEM: My client lives in a typical Toronto home which has a narrow entry. With the usual challenge of where to put mitts, mail, and knick knacks, I came up with a creative storage solution for a tight space.

SOLUTION: The solution was to build on the radiator narrow 6” shelves which can house leather or wicker boxes for storing and a bench which opens with a seat cushion and a mirror for checking oneself before leaving the house. I selected a deep gray colour to create drama and of course hide any nicks and dents. A deep colour can be a wonderful thing to put in high-traffic and high-use areas.

We utilized every inch of the space, which now provides much needed storage in an attractive package.
