3 Go-To Entryway Looks

It is no surprise that people have taken advantage of the time spent at home to complete house projects. I personally updated our sunroom, and have family and friends who knocked out major remodels. Although it seems like most people are prioritizing the rooms that they use most frequently, it is also a great chance to refresh areas that your guests will use. After all, we will reach a day when hosting is a normal occurrence (I cannot wait)! One area to consider is your entryway.

Entryway Wow

Unless you have a front porch, your entryway is the first opportunity to show off your style to anyone who visits. It sets the stage for the rest of your home, but can also be a great functional space, too. For example, a bench can be a nice option for older or younger guests to sit while putting their shoes on. A cabinet can be a great hiding spot for umbrellas, winter accessories, or dog walk gear. When dreaming up options for this area, don't forget to nail the "wow factor" while also making the space work for you.

My Go-To Looks

Since the stakes may seem high, being the first impression for a home, many people feel stuck when choosing a design for their entryway. If you feel this way, too, have no fear! I've compiled some of my foolproof options:

  • Walls

    • Large format art print: make a bold statement with a single piece

    • Gallery wall: show off a range of art or photography, plus keeps it playful

    • Mirror: keeps the space feeling open, plus allows you and guests to fix themselves upon entry or departure

  • Furniture

    • Console table: great for smaller spaces, while still allowing for accents/storage

    • Bench: let's people have a seat while coming and going, plus some pieces have storage

    • Shelving unit or cabinet: ideal for showing off your style while stashing odds and ends

  • Rugs

    • Modern: clean lines keep the room feeling perfectly "now"

    • Moroccan: boho touch, but be careful of pile so it isn't a nightmare to clean

    • Traditional: making a huge comeback and ultra-practical since the patterns hide wear and tear well

Mix and Match

Although that may seem like a lot of decisions to make, you truly can't go wrong! Each option can easily be combined with another to create your dream entryway. If you don't believe me, then see here for yourself.
