8 Ways to Brighten Up an Empty Entryway
Leave a lasting impression on your guests
It’s easier to think about decorating areas like living rooms, bedrooms, and even bathrooms, but what about the spaces that connect these areas together? Since guests see the entryway first, it's important to make an impact—whether with dazzling accessories or captivating vignettes. Create a space that's not only pretty to look at, but also echoes your personality and taste with these ideas:
One great way to add a touch of personality and warmth to any space is by displaying framed photos of your loved ones. Using a console table, you can put up only a few, or go the maximalist route and display as many as you want. Keep it interesting by using frames in different shapes and kinds, or maybe even some small trinkets and accessories.
If you don’t have enough space for a console table, you can put up your favorite photos, or even works of art, on the walls for an instant gallery of your own. Again, different kinds of frames can spice up your collection, or you can opt for uniform ones to achieve a minimalist aesthetic.
Console tables in your empty foyer or entryway can also be used not just for additional storage but also to display creative vignettes showcasing your collection of decorative items. Whatever your interests may be, you can use a vignette to give guests a sense of your personality.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again—touches of greenery can instantly add life to any space. From small potted plants (maybe even a mini indoor garden) to bigger ones, let plants breathe excitement into your bland, boring hallway or entryway.
Adding mirrors to any space does not only make it seem larger and more open, but also help maximize the room’s lighting and add to its appeal.
If you have a long and narrow corridor that you don’t know how to decorate, a rug may be your best choice. It also adds warmth to your space. If you're feeling adventurous, go for a rug in a fun, exciting color or pattern.
Entryways shouldn’t just be pretty—they should also be functional. If you don’t have any space for bigger and bulkier storage options, hooks are a great alternative to keep your bags and umbrellas in place.
Dress up a drab corridor or entryway with an eye-catching wallpaper. The great thing about this is that there are plenty of wallpapers available that not only come in interesting prints. But if you want a more permanent fix, you can also choose to go for a cool and unexpected wall finish.
