Too often, we overlook the importance of designing our entryway, forgetting about how powerful an impact those first few moments can have on setting the tone for our home. Having a beautiful and inviting entrance is possible with some creativity and thoughtful design. If you're looking to give your small entryway some love, this guide has all sorts of ideas to inspire your project! Read on to find out more.
Entryway design tip #1: Hang a Mirror
Hanging a mirror in your entryway is a great way to create the illusion of more space. It will also help to reflect light, making your space appear brighter and more welcoming. Additionally, decorative mirrors can add an aesthetic edge. You can go for classic oval shapes or gilded frames-- whatever statement style speaks to you!

Entryway design tip #2: Organise your space
Making the most of your entryway requires some organisational thought. Take some time to organise your entryway so that it is both functional and stylish. Consider hanging hooks on the wall for coats and bags, or you might opt for a rack for hats and scarves. To bring some style into the space, you can also get creative by placing wicker baskets to store additional items like umbrellas and gloves. With proper organisation of your entryway, it's easy to create an inviting and stunning space that also serves its purpose shrewdly.
Entryway design tip #3: Add a bench or console table
A bench or console table adds warmth to an entryway while keeping everything organised and in its place - creating a calm and welcoming atmosphere right at your door. Not only does it provide you with a convenient spot for storing footwear and bags, but it also acts as an inviting area for guests to put their belongings during a visit.
Entryway design tip #4: Install new lighting
Updating the lighting in your entryway is another easy way to give it a fresh look. You could install new sconces, add a pendant light, or even just change out the light bulbs to add more warmth. This will make your entryway more inviting and welcoming.

Entryway design tip #5: Create an inviting entrance with wallpaper
Wallpaper is an often overlooked but amazingly efficient way to create a warm and inviting entryway. Not only does it add style and texture to an often empty, dull space, but it can also serve as an accent wall that sets the tone for your entire home’s design.
