Designing a Welcoming Entryway

An entryway of a home is one of the most important spaces to have proper design and furniture. Every guest who comes to visit will make their first impression of your home from the second they walk into the door. You should make sure that you have all the right pieces of furniture and décor to compliment your space and also show off your style and taste! There are quite a few different ways to create the perfect entryway to ensure a beautiful opening space in your home.

Statement wall

One of the easiest ways to create a unique entrance into your home is by creating a statement wall! Some of the ways in which you can do this are through bold paint colors, patterned wallpapers, or painted wood paneling. Rather than having the same walls as the rest of your home, the entryway can appear more appealing and inviting by switching up the materials you use on the walls.


The best accessory to have in an entryway is a mirror because it allows the space to open up and seem more inviting. A circular mirror on the wall across from or next to the door is a simpler way of changing up the space but not in too bold of a way. If you want to make even more of a statement, a beautiful floor mirror can be added to the space to show off the remainder of the entryway and add in more light. Mirrors are especially great in the entryway because they can bring in more natural light from the surrounding windows and the main door, which also enhances the coziness of the home!

Simplistic and functional Table

A crucial piece of furniture to place in an entryway, if the space allows, is a side table. Not only is it a functional piece because it can be used for storage or for items that guests may temporarily bring into the house, but it is also a place to add more accessories. This is the perfect space for you to add personal touches like picture frames and coffee table books! Small side tables are great because they can be customized to match the rest of the vibe of the house - black metal tables are great for a more modern and farmhouse look, while a glass table may work better in a classy and traditional home.


Adding in simple touches around the space will also make the entryway cozy and welcoming. Storage baskets filled with blankets, pillows, and other interchangeable pieces of décor can be placed under the side table or in a corner of the entryway. Also, using plants and flowers brings in some life and can add a lot of color, especially if the majority of the house has a neutral color palette. A statement lighting fixture or a lamp allows for more character and light flow into the space and can bring out more personal touches.

While designing your entryway, it is important to try to implement as many personal touches as you can to fit your design style. You want to make your home as cozy and inviting as possible to make it a memorable space for all of your guests!
