Make an Entrance – Entryway Ideas

Check out these five welcoming entryway ideas!

1) Bold Statement- Consider painting a bold color if your entry is closed in or just add dramatic artwork and large-scaled accessories to create that bold statement

2) Personal Touch – By using my client’s photos from Texas A&M where she and her husband both went to college I was able to give the entry a personal touch.  This is also a type of entry space I get often where the stairs are curved and don’t give the space a complete wall to work with. Think out of the box… I found a furniture piece that fits the staircase section that isn’t curved, then filled in with photos on the wall behind it. I added a lamp on the other side for height to balance it.

3) Family Friendly  – I really like the new collection from Studio McGee at Target. Baskets on the bottom of a console great for kids and parent’s shoes.

4) Multipurpose –With this small spaced home I worked on designing an Entry that could serve as the mudroom too. Since they walk through the front door. A personal touch was added with family photos. The storage was kept to the side and bench added under the photo wall to give it a decorative statement.

5)  Opt for seating instead of a console, it creates a very welcoming look.

I hope these got you started thinking of ways to make an entrance in your own home.
