While it’s the main space that welcomes guests into your home, entryways are often forgotten or neglected. Creating a space that offers functionality and looks welcoming and well maintained is doable. Here are some entryway decor ideas that will make a great first impression.
Lighting plays a significant role in making a great first impression. Your entryway must be well lit, but the lighting needs to fit the space to balance function and elegance.
Your entryway is a great space to showcase some of your favorite people and memories. Frame artwork that has been brought home from school or things that are special to you and your family and display them in your entry.
Bring an element of the outdoors inside the entrance of your home. Add a large vase with dogwood, bamboo, or olive branches on or near your entrance table. Simple decor with the natural rhythmic flow of nature is a great way to ground the space and make a great first impression.
A mirror in your entryway allows you to take one last glance at how you’re about to greet the world when you head out the door. It also makes the entry appear bigger as more light bounces around the space.
A console table will provide a drop zone for keys and mail. It’s also a great piece of furniture to add a subtle pop of color and personal style.
Built-Ins & Storage
Built-in storage in an entryway offers an excellent way to hide clutter with a high-end, customized look. While built-ins can be pricey, a large piece of furniture like a hall tree or an armoire can offer the same effect. Find what works for your space and use items like baskets, decorative hooks, or bins to help maintain order and reduce front door clutter.
A well-designed entryway should balance utility and aesthetics perfectly. A well-organized area with everything in its place and a few charming details will make a delightful first impression and welcome your friends and family home.
