First impressions are important in every situation, even your home. Entryway decor is a great way to leave visitors with not only a good first impression, but a lasting one. For you, home should be a place of relaxation right off the get go and putting effort into your entrance is a great way to invoke a warm atmosphere.
When coming home, we often seek comfort in the familiar and as such making the first place you see extra warm and personal is a great way to invoke a peaceful atmosphere. Try hanging pictures or posting favourite quotes. For guests, it’s nice to sneak a peek into their hosts' lives and get a feeling of who they are.
Organization is key, especially in the winter influx of boots, hats, coats and more. Efficient storage, such as shelves and storage benches can keep clutter at bay and make coming and leaving home less stressful.
When decorating, make sure to accurately consider the layout of the entryway. Make the path inside the home clear and simple as possible while using the surrounding space for storage and decor. Simplicity is key while maintaining a balance of ease and style, so keep your entryway lightly decorated and clear as possible.
Make sure to leave space for a mirror, as the entryway is your final checkpoint when leaving home. It’s always nice to be able to see yourself before leaving and confirming that you’re all ready to go.
