Ideas for organizing my front entrance

I need some thoughts on how to organize my entranceway.  


As you can see it is very long and narrow.  There is a door to the right (you can see the knob) and a door right behind me.  The doors at the top of the stairs lead to a closet but it's really not useful as that is where our water heater and softener are.  

I am just tired of shoes, boots, jackets, mitts and hats scattered everywhere all of the time (this picture was taken long before we had kids, that is why it is clean and neat).  I have an over the door shoe holder on the inside of that closet for mitts, etc but I am the only one who ever puts things away...

Baskets on the shelf for hats and gloves. Maybe add a second shelf if you need more hooks/space. A boot tray under the coats.

I like the baskets idea .  Also you could put them on a shelf or a small table :)

Yeah, this.  We have a cubby bench under our coat hooks in the entrance for shoes and baskets for gloves/hats/scarves in the winter.

Quoting Caitlin411:

I would do a bench with some time of storage space underneath so you can fit baskets to contain some of it. 

It's a really cute area!
