7 Stunning Ways to Style your Entryway

You only get one chance to make a first impression and your entryway is the first impression of your home. Have a small space to work with? Here are 7 fun, great-looking and very affordable ideas to style your entryway.

1. Incorporate Seating

Adding a bench to your entryway is a great option for extra seating and storage space. A bench gives you and your family a place to take off your shoes as well as a place to store your blankets, scarves & mittens.

2. Hang a Mirror

A mirror opens up space and reflects light. It’s perfect for taking a final peek at yourself before heading out the door!

3. Pick a Statement Piece

Wow your guests during that first impression with a show-stopping statement piece like an accent cabinet or server. Not only will these pieces immediately catch your guests’ eyes, but they also serve the function of additional storage space. Need a place to keep your keys? Place a bowl on the top of the server or cabinet.

4. Pendant Lighting

A hanging pendant adds height to your room, making it feel bigger while also adding a pop of style. Pendant lights are great for small rooms because they don’t take up a lot of space and the soft light helps to create a welcoming atmosphere for your guests!

5. Add Hooks or a Wall Shelf

Wall hooks are an easy storage idea to keep coats and bags organized.

Wall hooks are super convenient for hanging your everyday items by your front door so you can grab them quickly on the go. Another option is to add a wall shelf. This is a great option because it provides storage space and hooks for coats.

6. Bring in a Shoe Mat

A shoe mat helps to designate a spot for where your guests should put their shoes. No one wants to walk into a cluttered entryway or trip over a pair of heels!

7. Choose the Perfect Runner

Area rugs and runners can soften any entryway

Add character to your entryway with a stylish runner. Area rugs and runners help define your space, as well as soften it up. Be sure to pick a rug that can handle some wear and tear since your entryway is a high traffic area.

I consider myself the luckiest spokespuppet ever because I get to talk about the thing I love the most everyday – furniture! Tufted headboards, rustic finishes, the difference between a sofa and a couch (yes, there is a difference)… I could go on and on. Oh, I just love furniture and I’m SO excited that I have this blog to share my passion with you! It may take me a little longer to create posts – have you ever tried typing with clay hands – but I look forward to talking furniture with you!
