Entryways create the first impression when it comes to your home’s décor. They are spaces which should look inviting and beautiful while still giving you a place to keep all your necessary things like keys, umbrella, hanging some coats, placing boots and also some décor pieces.
Do you long for that beautifully styled yet functional entryway that always looks organized? Read on to find out which accessories you should pick to create a tasteful and useful entryway.
Style And Organize Your Entryway
A mirror in your entryway adds beauty, as an accessory, to your space and is useful to check your appearance before you step out. You can choose from different styles of mirror frames from contemporary, minimalist designs to ornate, vintage designs. You can place one large mirror or a set of multiple smaller mirrors.
An entryway organizer will help you in keeping hats, gloves, scarves, shoes, etc. Either install an organizer with drawers or one with open shelves and keep baskets to store your stuff
Wall hung storage
Wall-hung storage is ideal for an entryway low on space. Whenever you free up the floor under a piece of furniture, it helps in making your space look bigger.
A floating shelf imparts a minimalistic clean look to your entryway. It can be used to keep your belongings as well as to accessorize.
Place a wrought iron bench, wooden bench, wing chair or a tufted bench to give your entryway a little bit of seating upon arrival. You can also get a tufted bench with storage inside.
A sleek table in the entryway gives a clean, minimalistic look. Style the surface by keeping décor items, hang art/mirrors on the wall and keep a couple of baskets underneath for storage.
Accessories – art, photos, sculpture, vase, lamp, fresh flowers
Accessorizing your entryway is absolutely crucial in order for your space to look stylish and inviting. Accessorize with flowers, books, sculptures, framed photographs, art work or mirrors. Put together a combination that works for your décor and don’t overdo the space.
Use trays to keep things organized. You can either use a tray to organize your accessories to clear up the rest of the surface or you can use the tray to keep keys and other belongings. Find trays in attractive finishes such as copper, gold, etc or materials like wood, glass, ceramic.
Baskets are an easy way to add storage to your entryway. Keep wicker baskets to store shoes, scarves, hats, etc. Stay away from baskets made from plastic; they don’t look as appealing.
Adding hooks to your entryway wall will help you give a place to hang your coats and hats.
All furniture and accessories, that you choose to decorate your entryway with, should be selected keeping in mind the overall design theme of your house.
