Design Guide: Tips On Styling Your Entryway
Posted on June 03 2021
Let's talk about one of the most important spaces in your home: the entryway. An entryway is the first thing people see when entering your home. It can make a good impression or make them feel unwelcome. With that in mind, it's worth making sure it is pleasing to the eye and well-designed. Follow these design tips to set the right atmosphere that your guests can expect to encounter throughout the rest of your home!
1. Use a Bench
A bench can be the perfect addition to your entryway, especially if you like to sit down to put on and remove your shoes. The space under the bench can also be used as a place to store your shoes, hats, or bags. Styles like the Edmon Accent Bench are ideal for entryways that need an extra place for storage. Add a couple of baskets under the bench for an extra hidden space for shoes or other items that you don’t want your guests to see!
2. Stay Organized
Keep clutter minimal and stay organized with smart storage. Storage pieces like our Baylor Entryway Bench provide you with places to hang your bags, hats, or coats. Enclosed drawers create an additional place to stash other items that pile up at your entryway. Perfect for on-the-go lifestyles!
3. Make Space for a Mirror
Adding a mirror to your entryway is both functional and stylish. A mirror can make a small entryway feel more spacious and it creates more light. Our Bogart Oval Floor Mirror leans against a wall and allows you to check your outfit one last time before you walk out the door for the day.
4. Keep it Simple
Don't feel that you need to overload your entryway space with too many things. You can create a stylish first impression with a simple design, like the Bingham Console Table. Add a potted plant or a couple of family photos to the console table to create a minimalistic and clean look.
