Entryways can serve many functions. They offer the first glimpse into our homes and are where we welcome guests. For many it’s also a drop zone for such things as coats, purses, keys and mail. If your entryway is on the smaller side, it may take some planning to achieve the function and organization you desire, while still reflecting your home’s style. Before purchasing furniture and accessories, measure the space and take into account your family’s daily routine to see what items would work best in the space. Do you need seating to put on your shoes? Hooks for bags? A basket for mittens? When selecting paint colors or wallpaper for the space, consider taking hues from the color scheme used in adjacent rooms such as the living room. This way your home will have a better flow.
To inspire you, I’ve selected some fabulous small entryway ideas that may consider for your home.
