Umbrella holders by your front door may seem like an old-fashioned notion, but they can help save your floor and area rugs from damaging puddles on a rainy day. An attractive entryway umbrella stand in your foyer will provide a charming first impression while protecting your floor.
Umbrella Stand Materials
Choose a material for your indoor umbrella stand that matches your entryway décor while protecting your home from water.
● A wooden umbrella stand
adds a warm, traditional accent to your front door. Finished walnut or Roman brown holders go well with rustic or classic decor. They have an antique umbrella stand look that matches well with classic looks. Wooden stands are lined with plastic to ensure rain drops won’t damage the wood.
● Metal umbrella holders
range from sleek and modern to vintage farmhouse looks. Choose a clean, silver cylinder for a minimal and contemporary decor style. Or look for unique designs like cut-out shapes or copper and iron twists. They resemble baskets or cages for a more ornate touch. Or choose one with delicate details, like sprawling leaves.
For an ultra-simple solution in a tight area, go for a slim metal stand with slots for up to four umbrellas. It’s a great, economical choice for apartments with minimal entryway space or for a large home with multiple entryways. It’s also narrow enough to tuck away in a coat closet once the umbrellas have dried.
Style Your Entryway
Coordinate your umbrella stand holder, coat racks, entryway table and benches for a unified look. Some coat racks come with umbrella storage built in. No matter which pieces you choose, entryway furniture will help you keep outdoor gear stashed away in style but within easy reach. You’ll hide clutter and create an inviting space to come home to.
