Restoration Hardware has some beautifully inspiring space designs on their website. This spectacular entryway is no exception! Take a look to see how to score this designer look at a fraction of the cost!
Dominating this space is the 88-inch-high Shutter Weathered Oak Three-Bin Entry Locker from Restoration Hardware. With three coat hooks, three shuttered-style bottom drawers and space at the top for additional storage, this piece of furniture is truly spectacular. Priced at $1,595, shipping is an additional $125, bringing the total price to $1,720. But Home Decorators has this Shuttered Locker Storage in weathered oak with the same appeal and same storage space. It is actually a little smaller at 74 inches high, which would realistically fit most spaces better! And because it is currently on sale for just $494 with free shipping, it fits more budgets better, too!
Savings: $1,226, or 71%.
Another key item in this Restoration Hardware space is the two mirrors flanking the storage locker. The Marseilles Leaner Mirrors in Natural are 19.5 inches wide by 86 inches high and come with a staggering cost of $700.00 each (with $125.00 shipping) for a grand total of $1,525 for two mirrors. But if you are willing to go a little smaller without losing this stunning effect, check out what Hayneedle has to offer. Their Byron Wall Mirror will need to be hung instead of leaned against the wall, but at 27.5" wide and 70.75"high, it will look simply elegant. And with a price tag of just $398.00 each, you can get two complementing mirrors for just $796.00 and get free shipping! That's a 48% savings.
Savings: $729.00 or 48%.
When it comes to the entryway, many people skip out on adequate lighting in order to opt for something more elegant. In the Restoration Hardware entryway, the lighting is both functional and elegant when suspended in front of the full length mirrors. The Harmon Pendant Light in dark brass natural finish is 15 inches in diameter and sells for $449. Purchase two to complete the look for a total of $898 plus $50 shipping. Lowe's has free shipping on their knockoff version. The Portfolio 13 inch Oiled Bronze Pendant Light sells for $118 (or two for a total of just $236). Once again, simple elegance and superb lighting, all for 75% savings!
Savings: $712, or 75% on two lights.
Storage is another key to a functional entry, especially when it comes to winter clothing. Restoration Hardware has paired up two different types of storage in this layout. First, the Seagrass Baskets are a good storage option. Available in three different sizes to meet all your needs, these baskets are both elegant and versatile. The small basket sells for $79, the medium one is $149 and the large basket is $199. Purchasing one of each will cost a total of $427 and $40 for shipping. Or you could get the Suzanne Kasler set of three Market Baskets available on Ballard Designs. This full set of three different sized baskets costs just $109 with free shipping. That's an incredible 77% savings!
Savings: $358, or 77% on three baskets.
Another storage solution is wire baskets that provide both circulation and visibility for the items stored inside. The Pool Locker Baskets from Restoration Hardware come in two different sizes, but the large baskets are $59 each. Get three baskets to fit across the top of the shuttered entry locker and pay $177 plus $21 in shipping. Or pick up the Square Wire Baskets from Crate and Barrel. Slightly smaller, they'll fit in the knockoff Shutter Locker easily. And at just $19.95 each, you can get three baskets for a total of $59.85 with $4.95 flat rate shipping, or a 67% savings!
Savings: $133.20, 67% on three baskets.
