Got a small space in your entry, landing, or foyer that just needs a little love and extra styling? How about incorporating a new hallway bench to add some interest and storage space? Whether you go for one with a padded seat (so you're comfy when changing shoes at the front door), or you just need something with a slim profile that won't interfere with accessibility, an additional seat will take things up a notch.

In fact, this handy accent can enhance the style of your entire home. Go for one that features reclaimed wood if you like the rustic look. Or try an entryway bench with glam metal legs and tufted upholstery if modern luxury is more your preference. We've collected a wide selection to help you pick the perfect one.

1. CB2 Tiro Rattan Storage Bench, $1,199

You won't need a shoe rack or storage cubbies if you have this bench from CB2. It's proof that hallway furniture doesn't have to be boring. If you splurge on this piece, you'll be getting storage (that's cleverly hidden under a removable cushion) in addition to automatic style. The pretty rattan base alone is wow-worthy.

2. Pier 1 Monet Mango Wood Storage Bench, $469.95

Looking for something a little more rustic? Add an entryway storage bench like this one from Pier 1 to your abode. The combination of a checked seat cushion and solid wood create a cozy farmhouse vibe with nifty cubbies for books and knickknacks.

Can you picture yourself chilling on this tufted bench from Article? We like the midcentury modern lines, but you'll love the two drawers for extra blankets or board games.

5. CB2 Catch-All Large Storage Bench, $649

This Scandi-style hallway bench from CB2 almost looks built-in, which we love. But don't let the sleek shape fool you; there's ample space inside to hide all sorts of things. And with the right styling, the top cushion can look super plush.

Need one stop where you can put on or take off your shoes? This hallway bench from IKEA is it. The Hemnes comes with two roomy shelves and a minimalist seat where you can slide on your loafers and flats.

7. Handy Living Millie Armed Bench, $159.99

The great thing about this bench is that it can go anywhere from a dining area to a bedroom. But we especially love it for a hallway. The hints of midcentury modern make it timeless, and the back support is great, too. Pop backpacks on top and a basket underneath for ultimate functionality.
