Finding the perfect entryway storage bench can be challenging but this list of 16 amazing DIY projects has tons of inspiration! Whether you want a plain wooden storage bench or something with lots of design detail, there is something perfect for every style and space.
We are knee deep in plans for our kitchen and the actual kitchen entryway (it's the door we enter and exit 95% of the time) has become a bit of a sticking point for me. I love everything about the rest of the kitchen, but I just cannot decide how I want our drop zone to function and look. We have this little space in the plans that would be perfect for an entryway storage bench, but I had also envisioned us having a built-in locker and bench situation for shoes, coats, book bags etc. As a family of four, we have a lot of stuff that goes in and out of our door, and I want it very organized. But I also love a pretty spot that is also functional. Decisions, decisions. Also, I totally realize this is a first world problem.
In my quest to narrow down our plan I came across a ton of AMAZING DIY entryway storage benches. I am giving you my favorites–everything from a simple wooden storage bench to a seriously amazing trunk with geometric inlay. And then, of course, my search lead me to options I could buy, because even I cannot DIY everything (don't tell Joe that please).
