The entryway of your home doesn’t just make a first impression; it also sets the tone for the style that carries throughout the rest of your home.
Whether you have a small entryway or an open-concept entryway, designing an inviting entryway space is all about creating a space that combines form and function.

Here are our 5 steps for designing an entryway:
Start with an anchor piece
We like to start with an anchor piece to give an entryway look some substance and increase function. An anchor piece can be anything from a console table to a side table for smaller entryways.
Add a rug to the space
Adding a rug to your entryway brings warmth and texture, defining the space. Rugs are a great way to add dimension to your entryway.
Adding lighting to your space is important in creating a cozy, inviting atmosphere. We love adding a statement light to draw the eye up in an entryway, but adding in a lamp is a great place to start.
Create a focal point
Hanging or leaning a large piece of wall decor above your anchor table draws the eye in to create a balanced focal point. In smaller entryway spaces, mirrors are a great way to make a space feel larger, but we love using them in large entryways, too.
Layer in decor and artwork
Bring life to your entryway with functional storage pieces like textural baskets for shoes or small bowls for keys, and decorative details like candles, books, greenery, and layered art to fill it in.
