Overhead lighting

When you walk into your entryway, you should be greeted with light. A hanging chandelier or lighting sconces will be elegant and brightening features to add to your home. Scented candles are also a chic source of light. Not to mention, your home will be smelling delectable right off the bat.

Add a rug

A patterned, area rug will add interest, color, and comfort to the entryway of your home. Since an entrance is a high-traffic area, choose a rug that is both durable and soft. When you kick your shoes off the best feeling is a soft rug under your toes!

Foreshadow your home’s style

Since you see this space every day, make sure your entryway reflects the style of the rest of your home. Bring in a paint color that will complement the palette of the rest of your home and incorporate textures and patterns that are recurring throughout your space.

Hang a mirror

Mirrors reflect both natural and artificial light to make a room look brighter during the day and night. They bounce light into the room, making it appear spacious. Placing a mirror near a window to reflect the outdoors is a beautiful way to invite light and greenery into your entryway. You can also use mirrored cabinet doors to make spaces feel bigger.

Install a mudroom

It’s not a good look to have shoes and coats sprawled on the floor. When you install a mudroom, your items will be neatly placed away behind a stylish cabinet. Our mudrooms come in a multitude of styles and colors that will match the character of your home seamlessly. A helpful tip is to place throw pillows on your mudroom to make it feel like a piece of furniture rather than storage.

Above all…show your personality

An entryway is a perfect opportunity to place art, flowers, and other knick-knacks that provide a charming and unique theme. Though these pieces won’t take up much space, they’ll provide individuality and make your entryway feel truly personal.
