Your home's entry is the first site visitors see when they step inside your house and the sight that welcomes you home every day. Isn’t that reason enough to make your entryway as inviting as you can?
If you're lost for where to start, here are some of our favourite entryway hacks you can adopt at your home. Whether it's a grand house or a tiny nook, by the end of this blog post you will be itching to re-decorate.. and after your done redecorating, you are going to love coming home more than ever before.
Take a Seat
If you’re lucky enough to have the area for an occasional chair to use when taking off your shoes then add one to your entrance. Jazz it up with a cushion and/or throw to make it just that little bit more inviting.
Go for a one-seater occasional chair or a long bench seat that can act as an area to put your grab-and-go items as well (handbags, gym gear, car keys)
Console it up
Have wall space? Place a console along your entry wall to establish an attractive focal point for those entering the home. You can centre it with the front door or have it on the adjacent wall. Place a few of your favourite things on top to give a taste of what is to come.
And if your house lacks storage, choose a console with drawers. They will act as great storage space to help declutter other areas of the house.
Maximise the grand entrance with some light. Add a floor lamp next to your seating or on top your console. Lighting helps to create a calm mood.
A Touch of Greenery Will Never Go Astray
Bring life to your space with some greenery. If you have a window with natural light than the real deal is always best. But if your entryway does not have natural light, go with an artificial plant, it will look just as good.
For Those With No Space At All But A Wall
Make it a feature wall with a big piece of art, wall hooks or even a photo gallery of all your favourite photos.
Once you have redecorated your space we would LOVE to see what you’ve done. Send us a photo via email (firstname.lastname@example.org)
