Your home’s entryway is the first thing people see when they visit. Though the rest of the house is important, the entryway makes the first impression and sets the tone for the rest of your home. Does your entryway lack that something special? Here are a few ways to liven your space:
Choose appropriate furniture.
Thinking functionally, what kind of furniture do you need in your entryway? Do you and the family come in another door? Perhaps that other entry (like the garage or side door) can be where shoes, jackets, and purses live. In that case, the entryway for visitors may need more simple pieces, like a small console table or sofa table. Don’t forget about your guests, though! Make a space for them to store their shoes and jackets when they visit.
Spice up the space.
There are so many ways to decorate! Here are a few:
1. Consider an accent wall. This could be a small piece on a wall, like a mirror. It could also be one small section of wallpaper or one wall with an accent paint color.
2. Find the perfect light fixture(s). This could be a statement piece, or something more complementary.
3. Shop around for other pieces to decorate. Look at lamps, small sculptures, baskets, etc. The options and possibilities are endless!
Build the entryway you need.
Remember, your entryway is for you and your family first and foremost, so build it with your needs in mind to make the space as functional as possible. The sky’s the limit! First, determine your must-haves: cubbies for the kids, hooks for bags and jackets, shelving for shoes, a chalkboard for messages, a charging station, etc. From there, find the right professionals who can help you put together a plan.
