You don’t need a lot of space in your front entryway to create a beautiful statement that makes the rest of your home shine, Incorporate some light and a few natural elements to turn your entryway into a grand entrance for your family and friends!
Seating for the Win
Having a place to sit down and slip off your shoes is a terrific boost to any entryway, and this charming shaker style parson’s bench is a great piece. Small cushions make the utilitarian bench comfy and add warmth. Simple wire storage bins look wonderful beside the wire coat rack, and the framing depth of the horse print and the mirror match beautifully, despite being different shapes. Natural fiber rugs make the whole space cozy and bright.
Your Walkway can Still Serve as Entryway
If your front door allows little wall clearance for a seating space, be sure and put up hooks for hanging jackets and purses. The deep cobalt wainscot is taller than usual and topped by the wooden hook bar. Bright white trim looks terrific against all of hte colors that sparkle in this space. Above the hooks, striking orange and black prints highlighted with black frames stand out against grey wallpaper. If you’ve got little ones, consider using chalkboard paint for the wainscoting for a family message board!
The Nonexistent Entryway
With a nonexistent entryway, you can still have a place where you can quickly drop or just keep your keys, so you don’t have to keep remembering where they are. You can have a strategically positioned bench that creates a tidy drop zone. A rough piece of wood will add more aesthetic appeal.
Feature a Console
One of the nicest things to have just inside the door is a console table. Covered storage is a great spot for mail to be sorted, seasonal storage and sanitizer products to protect family and friends. This entryway design also includes a flower arrangement in a white vase and a plant in a black pot. Of course, a simple round mirror bounces light across the room, and candles are an elegant touch.
