First impressions matter. Which is why paying particular attention to your entryway is important: The rest of your home may be worthy of a magazine spread, but if guests have to climb over clutter and elbow past rogue umbrellas to see it, that’s a problem. One catch-all furniture piece is all you need to tidy up even the narrowest of halls, and Target has the perfect one.

The Windham 2-Door Accent Cabinet comes with a ringing endorsement from almost 2,000 customers. Available in five colors and weighing in at just under $130, it’s a versatile and affordable piece that’ll stand the test of time.

Go for the classic white “Shell” hue for a timeless option. And if the other colors aren’t to your liking, don’t worry; it’s super easy to paint over in the color of your choice for something that’ll feel like custom furniture at a fraction of the price. Swap out the cabinet pulls to further personalize the piece.

With an adjustable shelf perfectly suited to whatever entryway needs you have, the uses for this cabinet are endless.

Low on closet space? Keep your most-used shoes neatly stored for easy access when you need to run out to pick up your laundry.

Overflowing bookshelf? Use one of the shelves to house the spillover.

Or maybe you just need something to take care of all the little tchotchkes that clutter your entryway once and for all. In this case, pick up a few storage bins—try a few small woven baskets for a bit of texture—to keep everything tidy and concealed.

With an average 4.5-star rating, the cabinet has received glowing praise from customers using it for a variety of needs. “Well-made, solid wood, idiot-proof assembly instructions—what’s not to like?” writes one reviewer.

Another points to the durability of the piece, saying that it survived a hurricane—which means it is definitely prepared for whatever wear and tear await it in your entryway. “I was shocked and impressed that it didn’t get ruined after my ceiling came down on it,” writes Jmad1975. “It survived with only a couple scratches on the top of it.”

A few reviews warn of a faint chemical smell that comes with the new piece, but according to user LoveTarget, this can easily be bypassed by wiping it down with a mixture that’s two parts vinegar to one part water, waiting till it’s dry, and then putting a box of baking soda inside for a couple days until the odor is gone.

Easy to assemble, durable, and stylish, we can see why this cabinet has garnered so much love on the Target website. Though, if it’s not for you, here are a few other entryway storage vessels that are Domino-approved.

For a slightly more contemporary cabinet, we love this industrial-inspired piece.

With intricate, hand-carved detailing on the front cabinet drawers, this Anthro buffet looks like an antique—perfect for anyone with an affinity for old-school charm.

If you’re willing to splurge, opt for this reclaimed wooden cabinet. With two shelves as well as a drawer, every odd and end you have laying around will find a new home.
