how to decorate a hallway

These 14 Stylish Hallway Decor Ideas Will Make You Rethink This Forgotten Space

The entry hall isn’t usually the first place people think to decorate. In fact, it’s often a neglected space because it’s a small area that can be challenging to outfit with the right furniture, art, and accents. Well, we’re here to tell you it’s actually one of the easiest spaces for you to pull off a big design moment.

With just a few thoughtful touches, you can turn any foyer or narrow hallway into a functional and fabulous entry that makes an impression. Whether it’s coming up with smart storage solutions, finding the right seating options or pulling together the best art pieces for big blank walls, there are easy ways you can make the most of this small and busy space to suit your style and practical daily needs.

For inspiration and guidance, we’ve rounded up some of our favorite hallway decorating tricks that marry style and function. Read on for our favorite ideas on how to decorate a hallway and get our tips for styling up yours at home!

 how to decorate a hallwayLayered Rugs

File this under simplest and chicest hallway decorating ideas. Laying down rugs in your entry not only adds soft texture from the ground up, but it also protects your floors and makes the hallway appear longer and more spacious.

Pair a runner with an area rug, like this entry, for a varied look, or try matching runners. The best part about layering rugs is that it’s one of few hallway decor ideas that adds color and pattern without requiring you to hang things up. Just be sure to use rug pads to hold them in place.

how to decorate a hallwaySlender Seating & Storage

A narrow hallway can feel like a challenging space to decorate, but don’t let the compact square footage stop you. It’s actually perfect for slender furniture designs, like the streamlined bench and open-base console in this passageway.

With a narrow space, the right size furniture matters so pick pieces that fit neatly along walls. Round them out with a mix of practical and decorative decor, like pillows for the bench along, art and lighting for your console, and some pretty bins and containers to corral clutter—we love baskets for stylish storage solutions!

Shop This Look

Slim Console Shelf

Whether your entry opens into a spacious foyer area or extends into a narrow hallway, a slim console table always makes for a stylish and practical solution. It takes up minimal floor space and leaves tons of walking room all around, which is key in any high-traffic hallway.

Consider a tiered console shelf that provides you with an extra level of storage and display space. A console shelf is also a great solution in dimly lit narrow hallways, since you can use the lower level for storing heavy books and items and top it with a table lamp and mirror to reflect light and open up the space.

Full Gallery Wall

One of our favorite hallway decorating ideas is to build out a floor-to-ceiling gallery wall. It’s a visually bold way to display large collections of art or photos, and it instantly gives a hallway so much personality.

There are many ways to build out a gallery wall, and how you do it is entirely up to you. While you can stick to black-and-white photos or a series of colorful paintings, why not try mixing different kinds of art. Combine photos, drawings, paintings, and even posters to create a more dynamic look. After all, decorating a hallway is about showcasing your personal style. So go big with your art picks!

Shop This Look

Oversized Art

If a full gallery wall in your entry passage feels a tad overwhelming for you, pare it down and focus on one oversize piece of art instead. It gives you the same dramatic effect with a more minimal, clean-lined look.

Try hanging a large-scale painting with pops of color to liven up all the blank wall space around it or go for a graphic look with a big black-and-white framed photograph. Round out the artwork by flanking it with sconces, which will give it a more formal and elevated look. When it comes to hallway decor ideas that are easy to pull off and offer instant visual impact, you can’t beat this.

Shop This Look

Multifunctional Passthrough

Part of the challenge with decorating a hallway is trying to fit in as much function into a small transient space. If you have an open area, like this entry, try working in a balanced mix of storage, seating, and accents that make it a multifunctional space.

Start with a console cabinet and pull in a chic stool or side chair. While there are plenty of entryway design tips, investing in beautiful seating is one of our tried-and-true hallway decorating ideas that never goes out of style—since any chair or stool can be repurposed for other rooms as needed. Then layer in practical decor (rug, lamp, wall hooks) and pretty accents (art, plants, small decorative objects) that will set your space apart from the rest of the home.

Shop This Look

Display Ledges

If you’re looking for simple and easy-to-install entry hallway decorations, opt for hanging ledges or floating shelves. The idea here is to make use of vertical wall space as both storage and display (that’s not a gallery wall!).

Lean framed photos and array small decorative objects in unique way on the ledges, or fill them with plants to create a faux vertical garden. The best part is how many ledges you choose to hang is up to you. Try one if you have a small space or go with more if you have the wall space.

Shop This Look

Tall Bookcase

Speaking of making use of vertical space, a tall leaning bookcase makes for another smart storage solution in a narrow hallway. It will help you maximize floor space and give your entry hall more walking room, while also providing ample storage on the walls.

In terms of hallway decorating ideas, a leaning bookcase gives you a lot of flexibility for use. You can use it to store books and display art, or you can also add baskets and other storage bins to start any extra shoes and fashion accessories that you might need on the go. If you’re tight on closet space and have an overspill of clothing, think of this as your wardrobe extension.

Shop This Look

Credenza

Our top pick for hallway decorating ideas that truly leave an impression is to anchor an entry with a statement-makin credenza. Not only does it provide you with tons of storage that’s beautifully hidden and disguised, a large storage credenza will also warm up your space.

Opt for a credenza with a bold facade, like the wood-patterned facade on this piece, or go with a design in a bright color or one that’s made with a unique material like caning. You can style up the surface with complementing decor, but this is one of the best ways to give your entry a show-stopping look.

how to decorate a hallway

If your main concern is how to decorate a hallway for practical daily use, lean a floor-to-ceiling mirror against one wall near your entry. This does several things for your space. The mirror reflects light around your hallway and opens up a small or narrow space to look and feel larger. And it gives you a space to get ready or to check yourself before you dash out the front door. Win win!

Shop This Look

Classic Entry Console

For hallway decorating ideas that are timeless, you can’t beat the polished look of a traditional entry console. Even though it doesn’t offer much storage, it adds major elegance and an elevated vibe.

Anchor your entry with a classic wood console that can be easily paired with other traditional decor elements, such as an ornate mirror and botanical or bird prints. The classic console is great in hallways that don’t need to be multifunctional or super practical, which means it’s perfect in passthrough places that need just a decorative style boost, like this hallway.

how to decorate a hallwayCompact Work Desk

Even in the smallest of homes, you can make the most of your entry hallway while also giving it a unique look. Try decorating a hallway with a narrow desk or slim secretary table to create a clever home office space in your entry hallway.

It’s one many clever ways to create a workspace in your home, but here it does double duty as a check-in spot in the entry. Tuck a stool under the desk for a seat that’s easy to pull in and out, and lay down a runner to balance out the work desk. We especially love this approach for small bungalow homes or city apartments.

Shop This Look

Storage Bench

While some of the above hallway decorating ideas can seem like a lot to pull off, you can also keep it simple with a tried-and-true storage bench. Choose a large one that gives you tons of hidden storage under the flip-up top. You can store seasonal items, like bench towels and scarves and gloves or use it for on-the-go accessories, such as purses, hats, and pet leashes. There’s a reason why this is one decor piece that finds its way into many of our entry designs!

Shop This Look

All Kinds Of Hanging Storage

Last but not least, few hallway decorating ideas are as versatile and applicable to any style or size space as wall hooks and shelving. These small wonders not only maximize storage by using vertical wall space, they also offer you a clean-line and organized look.

Install a floating shelf and wall hooks, then anchor them with a bench underneath to give the feeling of a compact mudroom. Or you can add a shoe rack or small side table if you live in a small apartment space. Either way, think of hanging storage as a small update that gives you a totally organized look.

decorating with old church pews

6 Ways to Decorate with Old Church Pews

Church pews aren’t just for Sundays anymore! Recently, we’ve been inspired by bloggers like Liz Marie Galvan, Fletcher Creek Cottage, and Whitetail Farmhouse who have used old church pews as a furniture piece in their home. Their feeds are what rustic, farmhouse dreams are made of!

Popular in the midwest and southern states of the U.S., decorating with used church pews is a fun way to put an old piece of furniture to use in a new and unexpected way! Some people may have them on-hand—an old family heirloom that’s been collecting dust in your garage or basement. And while they look charming sitting on a front porch, you can actually use them inside of your home as well!

If you love the idea of using a church pew in your home but don’t have one, they’re easier to find than you may think. Just keep an eye out at antique stores, estate sales, or even thrift stores. Then, you can either refinish or paint them for a perfectly rustic look!

Incorporating used church pews into your home is easier than you might think. We’ve rounded up a few ideas of how to do it. So, get inspired by these six church pew decor ideas!

decorating with old church pewsFarmhouse Fab

We love this “shabby chic” approach to an antique church pew, used as seating at a round dining table. Juxtaposed with spindle-back chairs, the mix of a pew and chairs break up the monotony and gives this farmhouse style breakfast nook a unique look!

The whitewashed wood church pew compliments the natural wood furniture and flooring, the shiplap walls, and the overall neutral rustic color scheme. To add a splash of color and texture, layer on some accent pillows, which can also double as back cushions to increase comfort. You could also add a bench cushion for more comfortable, softer seating!

This is a great option if you have small children. The pew acts as bench seating, but since it’s slightly closed in on the back and sides, it will help keep them contained while sitting and eating! And it’s also super easy to wipe down!

Looking for some church pew entryway ideas? We love the idea of using wooden pews as alternatives to a chair or console in your home’s entryway. It not only offers a seat for taking off shoes and a surface to set your bag, but you can also add storage baskets underneath for shoes, pet supplies, and kids items. Tucking the baskets underneath will allow items to be close-at-hand while keeping them out of the walkway!

Church pews with a natural wood finish can feel updated and more modern with boho touches, like fringed pillows and coastal decor. But the pew itself adds a homey touch to the space.

decorating with old church pewsA Touch Of Glam

You may not think “glam” when you think of an old church pew, but hear us out. When combined with a bold, jewel-toned wall color, brass accents, and a fluffy sheepskin rug, the dramatic shape of this church pew actually does start feeling kind of glam, don’t you think?

Church pews are narrow like benches, so they’re great for a hallway or walkway where a bench would typically go. With that in mind, this would be a great added seating area for a hallway or open space in your home. It gives you a reading nook or an extra place to sit and chat with guests. The side table adds some practicality, so you can keep a drink and snacks nearby, and the fluffy rug and eclectic pillows bring comfort to this seating area.

decorating with old church pewsFarmhouse Chic

If you have a big farmhouse table, we love the idea of using a whitewashed church pew as bench seating on one of the long sides of the table. You can offset it with slipcovered captain’s chairs at the ends of the table and traditional chairs opposite the pew. The softness of the upholstered chairs also visually balance out the hardwood bench.

In this set-up, we kept the church pew bare and simple—with just a throw for a pop of texture and pattern. Like we mentioned earlier in this post, this is a great table seating option for homes with kids, as church pews are easy to wipe down and the arms and high back help keep your kids contained while they eat!

And, while bench seating can help you squeeze in a couple extra people around the table, make sure the arms and sides of the pew fit under the table so that it can easily be slid in and out if someone needs to get up and to make things more comfortable for eating.

decorating with old church pewsStairway Charm

If you’re wondering what to do with the empty space under or adjacent to your stairway, consider an old church pew! This makes use of the wall space under your steps—and if your stairway happens to be by your home’s main entrance, it also offers a practical place to sit for taking off your shoes and unloading when you walk into the door!

Once it’s in place, you can style the area around it. Consider hanging some art, a clock, and even a mail holder for a practical touch! And speaking of practical—consider adding a basket or two underneath or to the side for books, shoes, and other everyday items. Then, finish off the set-up with some stylish throw pillows to add some comfort but also some pops of color and texture against the smooth wood pew!

decorating with old church pewsRustic Reading Pew

Need some additional seating in your living room? Consider adding an antique church pew! Hanging a gallery wall over the church pew anchors it as part of the room, and a floor lamp offers great reading light. Layering on pillows and a throw helps make this a more comfortable seating option, plus it adds a pop of color to the space! And having a pouf as a footrest will help you really kick back and relax. When you’re not using the pouf as a footrest, just push it under the pew to save on floor space!

Not only does this give you extra seating day-to-day, but a pew can be great for additional seating in your living room when entertaining as well! Just make sure you add in a side table nearby for drinks!

The Best Home Storage Solutions for Any Room in Your House

Storage. It’s something we all need—and something most of us never seem to have enough of. In fact, home storage solutions are actually one of our most-requested features from Modsy customers! For those who have plenty of closets or a basement or garage where you can store stuff this isn’t much of a problem—but for those of us who don’t have those features in our home, we have to get creative!

However, there are many ways to use design to your advantage and use it to help increase your storage space and make the most of the space you do have. And we’re not just talking about buying furniture that gives you extra storage. Because furniture storage options like a credenza, while beautiful and practical, are bulky and take up valuable square footage that many small spaces can’t afford. And most often it’s small spaces that need the most creative storage solutions. No, we’re talking about both hidden storage ideas and practical organizational solutions that will make your life easier, help you stay organized, and make your home more beautiful.

If you’re wondering how to create more storage space in your home, we’re here to help. We’ve rounded up our best clever storage ideas for every room in your house!

home storage solutions1. Get Organized With Large Baskets

One of our favorite home storage solutions is utilizing baskets. Large baskets are easy organization tools, as they can be moved around to where you need them most and you can easily stash things in them to keep your home looking sleek. Plus, woven baskets look great anywhere in your home!

Some favorite basket storage ideas for homes with kids? Assign a basket to each kid, and they’ll always know where to put their stuff during clean-up! Baskets can also help make use of the “dead space” underneath raised furniture, like a bench, platform bed, or sofa, adding extra storage while minimizing clutter. And you can also utilize the wall space above the furniture for added organization or decor. Hang a floating shelf, and perhaps a mirror to help reflect light and open up your space.

Bonus organization tip: If you’re using the bench in your entryway but don’t have a front closet or space for a coat rack, consider hanging a single hook near your front door. This gives you the perfect flexible organization option for coats, a dog leash, or even a purse.

home storage solutions2. Wall-Mount a Storage Shelf

We love the idea of using floating wall shelves with cubbies for additional storage. Using this style, like the one pictured above, means you not only have the top shelf space for storage and display, but you can also use the inside cubby for storage! (Whereas, with a traditional floating shelf, you mainly just have space for decoration.)

Wall-mounted storage shelves are a great storage solution for small bedrooms that don’t have a ton of space, giving you extra surface space for books, cosmetics, personal objects, or even baskets for stowing socks or accessories! And, since they’re floating shelves rather than a standing bookshelf, you don’t have to worry about them taking up any precious floor space.

home storage solutions3. Do Double-Duty with a Storage Bench

Storage benches are perfect home storage solutions for any space in your home. They’re great in entryways, as pictured above, for stowing outdoor gear, bags, extra shoes while also giving you a place to sit as you put on and take off your shoes. And, in an entryway, it’s particularly nice to pair them with a coat rack and mirror. But they’re also great in living rooms, hallways, and bedrooms.

Wherever you place a storage bench, it gives you an easy, out-of-sight place to put clutter—which is great for busy households with kids. Instead of stressing about things looking cluttered, you can just throw things in the storage bench and have it out of sight and out of mind! And we love the practicality of a storage bench with drawers versus a lid that lifts up, so that you can have a nice arrangement of pillows or a blanket on top that doesn’t get disturbed every time you want to put something away.

home storage solutions4. Divide your Room With Shelves

For those in studio apartments, where storage tends to be minimal and you don’t have the benefit of as much wall space, we love the idea of using a room divider with built-in shelves. Not only does this help add more distinct zones to your space, but by opting for one with built-in shelves, you’re adding surface space for books, decor, baskets, and more. We love pieces that offer double-duty practicality.

This is also a great option for homes with open living and dining rooms, or as a way to section off a play area or office within a living room. For everyone who’s working at home right now and doesn’t have a separate office, this is a perfect way to create that separation of work and living space. If a room divider isn’t quite your style, a great alternative would be open-back bookcases floating in the middle of the room, which can still help create some distinct zones within a space.

Shop This Look

home storage solutions5. Keep a Low-Profile with Wall-Mounted Bookshelves

When square footage is at a premium, we’re big believers in utilizing the height of your room and making the most of vertical space. That’s where wall-mounted shelves come in. They have a slimmer, lower profile than traditional bookcases or credenzas—so, overall take up less space—but still offer a ton of shelf space for storage.

With open shelving like this, you can still have hidden storage by placing baskets or organizational boxes on some of the shelves. This is a great option for an office or for living room storage ideas. In fact, the desk and shelf combo, pictured above, is perfect for if you don’t have space for a separate office but still need a space for working from home.

Shop This Look

home storage solutions6. Sneak in Storage with a Coffee Table

If you have a small living room that doesn’t have space for additional storage, then you definitely need to consider a storage coffee table. This piece of furniture gives you a place to stash extra blankets, remotes, magazines—whatever you want close at hand but out of sight! And it’s also perfect for cleaning up clutter in a pinch when someone stops by unannounced!

We love the option featured in the design above because it doesn’t look like a storage piece but is seriously so practical for a small living room. Plus, the lid pops off, so you can put a bowl or tray on top of the coffee table and easily remove the lid without upsetting all of the decor. But, if you don’t like a drum table style, you could also go with a storage coffee table that has drawers, a pop-up top, or even just a traditional coffee table with two tiers so you can use the bottom shelf for storage. All in all, it’s one of our favorite storage ideas for small spaces.

Shop This Look

home storage solutions7. Corral Clutter With a Credenza

For those who do have a little space to spare, you can’t go wrong with a console table or credenza. These low-maintenance furniture pieces offer tons of storage—but, if you get one with doors and drawers, you can simply hide away what’s stored inside! So, you don’t have to worry about maintaining it and keeping it looking good like you would for an open or glass-front shelving unit. No one knows how much clutter is hidden behind those gorgeous carved doors! Plus, the top is a perfect place for decor, a lamp, and perhaps a bowl or tray for keys or knick-knacks. This is a perfect way to utilize a random nook in your home for storage.

Shop This Look

home storage solutions8. Utilize a Pass-Through Space

Do you have a wide hallway, a larger entryway area, or even a pass-through or alcove space that you aren’t sure what to do with? Make the most of this “dead space” by lining the wall with useful pieces. This is a great place for a console with drawers, giving you both hidden storage and surface space for decor and organization. And we love the style above that has a lower shelf—perfect for shoe storage!

If you have a longer space, you could also add a bench, and hang some wall hooks for additional storage. And, while not a storage solution, adding a runner will help give this set-up a more intentional look instead of it being a hodge-podge of furniture and objects! By putting wall space to work, you can make the most of a space that would otherwise go unused.

The symmetrical design offers a more formal, balanced vibe and the woven textures contrast beautifully with the sage green wall. It creates a soothing welcome home greeting in any home.

For a front door entryway design that makes a splash, try defining your entryway with an accent wall. The bold mural really sets this space apart from the rest of the house without clashing with other design styles. Hanging striking artwork on the wall makes an even bolder statement—this one keeps the art and mural in the same color palette to keep the look cohesive.

So, make sure your entry is prepped for your on-the-go summer lifestyle by keeping it organized and functional. We’re offering up 5 easy entryway storage ideas that will turn it into the perfect hub and a practical yet stylish checkpoint for summer.

Ready to get your entryway into summer-shape? Read on for 5 of our best entryway storage ideas!

entryway storage ideas1. Add Breezy Catchalls

If you’re looking for easy, good-looking storage that doesn’t crowd up your entry, woven baskets are a great way to go. They’re an easy addition that’s guaranteed to add both function and a summery vibe to your entry.

They’re great for holding everything from your daily yoga mat to umbrellas and beach towels, or they make perfect hampers for dirty shoes and sandals that you don’t want to drag into the house.

Stylist Tip: Squeeze a few baskets into tight corners, line them up side by side, or even stack several small lidded ones on top of each other.

entryway storage ideas2. Hang It All Up

Work in some wall hooks and hanging shelves with coat racks in your entry to give yourself easy access to all your summer totes, beach towels, bike bags, backpacks, and light jackets. This not only helps you save on floor space but it also provides a place for all your summer essentials.

Stylist Tip: Make the most of your entryway by thinking vertically. Line up a row of hooks along one wall then add shelves above for even more storage space.

entryway storage ideas3. Ready Kid-Friendly Storage

Need your entry to be functional and family-friendly? Add a storage bench (or tuck a few baskets under a regular bench) so that your kids have their own designated space for stashing sandals, beach toys, and even swimming trunks. With a bench, you also have the added bonus of a seat in the entry for little ones to put on and take off their shoes.

Stylist Tip: For maximum functionality, incorporate wall hooks above your storage bench, which will turn your entry into a mini mudroom that has enough storage for the whole family.

entryway storage ideas4. Make For a Double-Duty Vanity

Add a console table and hang a mirror above it to give yourself a makeshift vanity where you can do a last-minute wardrobe checks before you dash out to all your summer parties. Use the surface for trays, bowls, and catchalls that can hold sunglasses, jewelry, and keys that you’ll need whenever you head out.

Stylist Tip: Choose an open-base console that allows you to squirrel away two ottomans underneath it for moveable seating. No need for perches? Bring in baskets instead for additional storage that’s also attractive.

entryway storage ideas5. Create a Convenient Storage Station

If you have a spacious entry, anchor it with a dresser or a storage chest that conceals all your everyday on-the-go essentials — be it extra chargers, notebooks, or blankets that you can fold and tuck away.

The best part about a storage chest is that you can also use it as a seasonal extension of your bedroom closet. Sneak in extra storage by using your entryway to hold extra summer scarves, sarongs, and light cardigans.

Stylist Tip: A storage chest alone is all function, but you can dress it up to be a focal point by bookending it with two chairs and adding a mirror or pretty art. To add durability, lay down a natural-fiber runner or rug to give your entry a relaxed summer vibe.
