Maximize vertical space
If you have a narrow entryway, chances are, you won't be able to add many pieces of furniture. No need to fret as you can work with your walls! Install wall-mounted shelves as storage and choose a slim bench to welcome guests. To liven up the space, you can add interesting wall art and framed photos.
RL Tip: Consider gallery-type mirrors to visually enhance the space.
Given the limited space, you need to keep it organized and free from clutter. Don't just leave your shoes and slippers all over the place. Make sure you have boxes or a small shelf where you can neatly place your pairs. Do not leave magazines, umbrellas, and other essentials lying around as well.

Opt for slim furniture
Bulky pieces of furniture will look out of place in a narrow area. Consider foot traffic: would you still be able to pass through or move around freely? The best piece to add would be slim bench that won't take up too much space and can accommodate guests. Make sure that your pieces won't block the entry and exit points.
Invest in lighting
If you have a narrow entryway, you can work with cove lighting to give your space depth and to make it more inviting. Choosing the right lighting fixtures is important to keep the room functional and avoid making it seem cramped. Consider placing lamps on tables and installing wall sconces.
