We’ve all heard of the saying “First impressions last.” This statement rings true even when it comes to decorating the home. Your entryway should not come last, because it’s important to give your guests an unforgettable welcome whenever they visit your space.

However, not all of us actually have a foyer to deck out. But don’t worry—there are things you can do to create a faux one. Here are some of those easy hacks.

Use a skinny console

One classic way to define an entryway is by furnishing it with a console. But even if you don’t have a very big space for a foyer, you can still get a console—just make sure it’s a smaller kind that won’t eat up too much space.

Add pretty décor

No console is complete without even a little bit of fun décor. Whether you’re a minimalist who thinks a simple vase and some frames will do, or a maximalist who believes more is more, your fake entryway will surely benefit from a few accessories.

Create a gallery wall

If you want to infuse some more personality into your entryway, one simple thing you can do is hang up some of your favorite snapshots. You can also go for works of art or even other pieces like typography or posters.

Incorporate some storage

Take advantage of your bare spaces by putting some cute storage units there, like baskets and racks that can hold a variety of items, from magazines to random small baubles.

Invest in multifunctional furniture

One clever way to add storage into your entryway is by way of multifunctional furniture, like a bench with space underneath for some baskets. You can use that space to store shoes or spare rugs.

Install hooks

If you don’t have baskets or multifunctional furniture, you can mount some hooks on your wall instead to hang up your umbrellas or bags. Working with hooks is a great, space-saving storage hack.

Give some seating space

Do you ever have those times when you need to put on or take off your shoes when you step into your home, but your back ends up hurting from bending downwards because you don’t have a chair to sit on? Solve that dilemma by furnishing your fake entryway with a simple seating unit. It doesn’t even have to be a huge, fancy piece!
