Making An Entrance: Design Tips for Your Entryway

Wooden entry lockers

Seating

Seating near your door offers a place for guests to sit to remove their shoes, while also showing off your unique style. Accessorize a bench, a stool, or a chair with throw pillows or plants that showcase your personal style and give a preview of the rest of your home.

Storage–Coats, Bags, and Shoes

There’s nothing worse than walking into a home and having no place to set your things. Don’t leave your guests guessing, but it doesn’t have to be complicated either. Open hooks work well for coats and bags, and a simple basket, rug, or shelf offers a landing spot for shoes.

A Console Table–functional storage for the little things

A console table is a classic choice for adorning an entryway and providing surface area for a catch-all spot for keys and papers. Choose a piece with practical storage like drawers or shelves, and curate a small vignette to add visual interest with personal items or a table lamp.

Tell a Story

Entryways are one of those special places in a home where guests pause and look around, making them the perfect place to incorporate unique items that tell your story.  A gallery wall can include family photos as well as special souvenirs from your travels. Brighten a neutral space with a colorful rug, or choose art that speaks to your eclectic taste. Be brave and have a little fun!

Lighting

Whether your entry is a traditional foyer, a modern mudroom, or a quick transition into an open floor plan, lighting is essential in setting the ambiance. A modern chandelier, a cozy lamp, or a pair of mirrors can lighten the space and elevate the eyes.

By bringing together your own personality with these key foundational elements, your entry can have that wow factor as soon as you or your guests walk in! All of the photos you see in this post are items that can be purchased here at Dwell.
