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 three convenient bins to store your blankets, scarves & mittens. If you have children, assign each of them their own bin.

2. Hang a Mirror

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

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.
