This is one of our favorite tables for foyers featuring neutral decor. The mix of lamp, greenery, and shapely items along with the variety of sizes creates a cool, dynamic look. The style uses lots of ceramic and natural materials and the floor mirror adds a functional aspect that’s unique because it’s not placed over the console like in most entryway table designs. This refined rustic look is perfect for those who want a ‘classic’ entryway with a bit of unique twist.

7 Pretty & Practical Entryway Ideas

entryway ideasMore than any other room in the home, your entryway should be a space that’s both stylish and functional. It’s the first room you and others will see, so it should make a lasting impression.

At the same time, it’s also a busy space that gets a lot of everyday use. As such, it needs to be practical and functional, designed with pieces that work with your lifestyle. Additionally, if you live in a small space and have a tiny entryway, it’s all the more important to make sure it’s styled and furnished just right.

All to say, the entryway is one space in the home that deserves lots of smart design attention. Read on for some of our favorite entryway ideas and tips for creating a perfect welcome spot in your own home.

modern entryway ideas1. Make a Stylish First Impression

Because it’s the first space guests will see, put your style on full display in your entry. This way you’ll set the tone and overall vibe for the rest of the home.

We love this minimal-Deco space with a rounded mirror and console. The accent chairs provide a pop of natural texture and a place to sit. The curved shapes on repeat give this entryway a curated and streamlined look that’s sure to captivate.

No closet space? No problem! Bring in a large storage console or sideboard to add major function to your entryway. Choosing a captivating storage piece will help to define your space by setting it off from the rest of your home.

Consider starting with a large enclosed piece that has elaborate carved detailing on the facade. This will add tons of visual texture, a must for any space. You can even opt for one in a lighter wood tone, as in this sideboard, will make for an especially show-stopping focal point in the entryway.

If you don’t have the square footage for a full-on entryway, you can create a makeshift one in a corner.

To start, you can’t go wrong with this tried-and-true entryway furniture formula. A console paired with an art piece or a mirror, a stool and a tall plant. Then if you have the room, take a cue from this corner entryway and layer in a basket for some extra easy storage that’s perfect for shoes and kids items.

4. Define the Space With a Rug

Just like a statement cabinet, another way to set off your entryway is to add bold style from the ground up with a rug. This is a great way to visually define your space and is one of our favorite entryway ideas.

For a durable rug option in the entry, lay down a natural-fiber rug, which can stand up to lots of foot traffic. Flatweave rugs are also good choices as they often come in a range of neutral and vibrant colors that can enliven your space. You can also use your rug as the jumping-off point for the rest of your entryway, as in this space, where the colors and patterns of the rug tie in with the warm wood of the credenza and the green walls.

Needless to say, your entryway furniture isn’t just limited to consoles and credenzas. An elegant bench or settee is another way you can put the space to work while giving it a high-style look.

Pull in a chic settee, as in this classic one, to create a place for putting on and taking off shoes on the way in and out of your home. This is a great idea if your entry is part of a long hallways or pass-through space. Then round out your seating with equally pretty accents such as matching side tables, lamps, and a pillow or two. A captivating art piece will also help bring focus to the spot.

There’s no better place than the entryway for impactful wallpaper. It’s an out-of-the-box option that’s guaranteed to leave a fun first impression for guests and also add a bit of whimsy and personality to your home.

You’ll also be less likely to get tired of a bold wallpaper in the entry since it’s mostly a pass-through space. Opt for a wallpaper pattern that’s a little unexpected, like this striated geometric motif, and try a color you normally wouldn’t go for in your living spaces. This is one of our favorite entryway ideas because it lets you experiment with new designs and expand and your decor boundaries. Don’t be afraid to go very bold. Offset your wallpaper with streamlined pieces to strike good visual balance.

7. Tuck in Extra Seating

Finally, open consoles look great in the entryway but they lack the extra storage you’d get from a credenza. Nonetheless, you can put that open space to work by stowing stools and storage ottomans in there.

This is a great way to add extra seating to your entryway without taking up more floor space. Opt for a matching pair of ottomans and stools to create a cohesive overall look. If you’re not sure ottomans will fit underneath your slender open-base console, try pulling in a few baskets for easy storage instead. It will provide you the same compact and collected look.
