The Well-Styled Entryway

Everyone loves to make a good first impression. Since your entryway is your guests’ first impression of your home, you should style it in a warm, inviting way. A good entryway should be arranged to allow for quick dashes out the door as well as restore you after a long day away from home. Even if your entryway is small, you can still use it to make a statement and greet your guests with a glimpse of what’s to come.

First, make sure the lighting is adequate. You don’t want your guests to stumble for their shoes in the dark! Next, hang a mirror on the wall to make the area look larger and to use for touch-ups on your way out the door. Then make sure you have the following functional accessories: a coat rack or coat hooks, a small table by the door and a dish for stashing keys. Last but not least, add decorative touches to the mix: a framed family photo, a stunning vase or other decorative accents depending on the theme of your home decor.

If the area is large enough, add a set of occasional chairs on either side of the table. We’re partial to a reclaimed wood console, as it adds a touch of warmth to any space. While your entryway is simply a place to greet guests and prepare to leave, having a place to sit while you lace up your snow boots, or catch your breath after watering the flowers will be an added bonus to the aesthetic appeal.
