Q. How do you decorate an entryway?
They say the first impression is the last, but here is how you decorate an entryway to create a lasting impression. Follow these simple steps to decorate your entryway. Bring home a bit of nature, add potted plants; the ones with flowers are a bonus. Include mirrors in the entryway; it not only opens up the area, but you can also get a quick look just before you head out. Small pieces of furnishings like wall-mounted shelves or a small console table along with a pouf or two is an excellent idea in making your space more functional but remember not to use up floor space. Use the empty walls to display art like a large painting or a poster or your favorite quote, something that expresses your personality, and finally, good lighting goes a long way, with either an eclectic chandelier or a floor lamp that lights up the entryway.
Q. What is the best color for an entryway?
The best color for an entryway is the one that’s rich and inviting. This color sets the mood and tone for the rest of the house, so make sure you pick the right one. Whether your entryway is large or small, white is always a great choice. It’s ok to add a bit of color; soft hues like blush pink, powder blue can transform your entryway without overwhelming the space. Moody tones like grey and navy are other great colors that go well with an entryway, they add depth into space without making it dull or dreary. In short, feel free to keep it neutral and minimalist or drench the room with a little bit of color.
Q. What to put on the entryway table?
You can put many things on the entryway table, but adding them all can either make it super crowded or look unpleasant as soon as you enter. So let’s begin by understanding the purpose of the entryway table. Since it’s mostly kept at a prominent place, the display becomes its primary function. A lamp on the table will welcome you and your guests with a soft glow. A small tray or a storage box for your keys and change will make your table look less cluttered. Books say a lot about who you are, so you can tell your guests your all-time favorites or display some literary classics. Other popular ideas for your entryway table are family photographs, flower vase, statement decor piece, or scented candles. Try different combinations of the above-listed products until you feel happy every time you enter or go out that door.
Q. How high to hang a mirror in the entryway?
Mirrors should be hung at eye level like artwork. Mirrors are a great decor accessory; when hung correctly can make a room appear bigger and brighter. One such popular place is the entryway. In an entryway, mirrors should be hung around six to eight inches higher than the entryway table itself. This should be enough to get a glance every time you enter or exit the door. Round mirrors, square mirrors, and rectangular mirrors work best for above a console table.
Q. How to decorate the entryway wall?
Here are some great ideas on how to decorate your entryway wall that will surely get a second glance from your guests. One way is to create a mini gallery wall with your favorite art or family photographs-extra points for wall decor with a personal touch. Another excellent idea is to add floating shelves; it is perfect for dropping keys, change, or stacking mail. Wall hooks are another great space saver, where you can hang your umbrellas, coats, shopping bags. Please make sure they are sturdy enough before you go on to hang heavier stuff. You could also bring in the elements of nature and have colorful planters hung up on the wall. The most popular idea of all is to hang a stylish, sleek mirror. You can not only check your outfit on your way out the door, but it automatically makes space feel bigger and brighter.
