Welcome Guests Right: Designing Your Entryway

The entryway of a home provides visiting guests with the first impression of a house, and for those that want their home to create a welcoming vibe, they should focus on the interior design of this room. All too often, this space becomes piled up with shoes, backpacks, and other pieces of everyday clutter, which can create a stressful environment as soon as one walks through the door. If this is not the look that you are going for, here are some entryway design solutions to welcome guests the right way:

Built-in furniture - mudroom entry
  • When coming up with the overall design of the space, consider what the homeowner uses the entryway for. For many, it’s the home’s command center. This means that organized shelving to neatly tuck away shoes, car keys, and incoming mail could prove to be very useful.
  • For those that don’t want to have all of their goods (purses, keys, mail, etc) exposed to just anyone that walks through the door, utilizing some decorative boxes ��or baskets displayed on an entryway table is an ideal solution while still providing function.
  • Don’t forget to be stylish. Remember, this is your client’s first opportunity to make an impression!
