Entryway Design Ideas That Can Create an Excellent First Impression

Ask anyone and they will share your sentiment: stepping into your house should make one feel simply ‘wow’. If you only want one reason to invest in decorating the entryway, so let it be this: everyone needs a pleasant spot in the entrance! Well, an entryway is not just a place to put your shoes, hang your coat and place your house keys. Rather it should create an experience; a stylish and well-organized entryway surely imparts a stunning impression of your house. So, get ready to welcome your guests in élan! Whether your entry is a modified mudroom or a formal foyer, it is all about arranging décor, furniture, lights and rugs that are enough to mesmerize your guests the moment they walk into the front door. Decorate your entryway & win your guests’ hearts! Scroll on for a few decorative ideas that are apt for pretty & functional entryway:

Go gaga with neutral color scheme

Too many dark or deep colors in the entryway will make your space seem too cluttered and may even send guests into a claustrophobic frenzy. So,  open up this space with plenty of neutral shades and also as much natural light as possible. If windows are not there, supplement them with glowing sconces and recessed lighting. Need a spot to stash your stuff? Swap in a storage bench.

Develop your gallery wall

Some may see a blank corridor but you may view a gallery just waiting to unveil! Hanging artwork or family portrait is a simple solution to add a personal touch to your pathway. Choosing coordinating frames just in a single color is sure to create a cohesive look.

Stylize your soaring ceiling and entrance

The double-height entryway is splendidly austere, with pendant lights, an antiqued silver, and brass railing and gray onyx flooring providing the major drama. A photograph may rest on a bench covered in leather below a soft shimmer along the wall.

Amp up your long corridor

Add flair to your long & narrow corridor by laying down an area rug, or, more appropriately, a runner. Give this space a spill of earthy paint and then layer in artworks.  Take your entryway decor to the next level by placing plant pots.

Glam up your decent size foyer
Say “bonjour” to Parisian-inspired entryway. White walls, light wood floors are a clean slate. Add French charm with a bloom-filled vase, checkered runner or a framed art.

Size Matters!

Oversize art surely sets a stylish tone. It is all about creating an elevated entryway with striking vignettes while playing with the scale! Investing in a stunning statement piece effectively pulls together a vivid entryway thereby leaving behind a lasting impression. A chic, bold chandelier or a pendant light also can be truly transformative without any risk of clutter.

Pep up the entrance  with stairs few meters away

Infuse some warmth just by placing an oversized rug on the landing. Along with rustic laurel and a chair, you will love the shelf exposing miniature succulents. Hung oil paintings all around—including above and beneath the staircase.  Else, place a piano or a light fixture at the bottom of the stairwell.

Draw Eyes on Tiny Things!

If the ‘less-is-more’ trend is also your style, then use minor details that can shine brightly. In the all-white entryway, a minimalistic approach to design allows the tile detail to speak out for itself! This high contrast result is stylish and also downright stunning. Reflect light and make it look stunning with a bright mirror. You may also do your last moment lipstick check in the mirror!
