The entryway of our house acts as the first impression for anyone who visits and it is also the first stop for any family member who may live there, which usually means you need storage or a place where you can store your shoes. However, once you get the storage aspect worked out, it then becomes important to figure out how to make your entryway look good as it will set the tone for the rest of your house.
It can be tempting to shy away from adding in your favorite style or adding a bold color palette to a small area like an entryway because you don’t want to overwhelm a smaller space or be too adventurous. However, by adding in bold designs and bright colors your entryway of the home you’ll make the entire space feel a bit bigger and you can show off the personality of your home as people enter through the front door.

Next, to the design, one of the most important things your entryway needs is a storage component that allows you to store the items you need as you run out the door in the morning or give you a place to put everything as you arrive home after a long day. No matter how you choose to add in storage, make sure it suits the entire family and allows each member to have a spot to place their items.
Lastly, you want to make the entryway into your house a functional yet comforting area that helps you welcome guests and family into the home in a very inviting way. To achieve this, add seating if space allows for it as this will give your visitors or yourself somewhere to put shoes on before heading out for the day. Also, try to include items such as a table lamp to offer soft light or a diffuser to add another layer of comfort into the entryway.
