Room Design: Enhance Your Entryway

An entryway is worth investing the time and effort to decorate as it’s where first impressions are created. The entire room design is defined by the look of the entryway. It serves a functional purpose by setting the tone for the whole house and a spot where people are able to appreciate the entire place ahead of them. The question is raised on how to best approach decorating the entryway structure as it accommodates for both heavy traffic and high speed. These few insights can provide steps into putting together the design and décor for your entryway that can make a statement.

GRAND WELCOME
The view you are greeted with after the front door is open can dictate the presentation of the entire house. A good start is to begin by what’s right at your feet, choosing a welcome mat that reflects the personality of the house. There is the option to upgrade to a stylish mat or stick with an antique rug that can complement the whole room design.

ART ATTACK
A lasting impression may also be created through the use of artwork to set a chic tone. A tangible statement piece can help pull together a unique entryway that stands out and adds a creative flair. An eye-catching wallpaper can also create the same effect.

FASHION AND FUNCTION FUSION
There are no barriers when it comes to establishing a room design style that reflects your taste. For some, they may decide to opt for a blend of décor and design elements. The use of colourful flowers or leather stools can build a bold impact for a small space. The practical use of lightings, such as a chandelier or a lamp, can affect the way the entire entryway is displayed. The entryway is known as the room for an introduction and adding your own charm can make it even more welcoming.

HAVE A SEAT
Guests may feel even more at home by providing an accessible seat for them by the main entrance. The addition of a bench or chair to the room design has a practical purpose since people would have to sit down to take off their shoes and put down their belongings.

LAY IT ALL ON THE TABLE
It is essential for an organised space to have a clean and uncluttered entryway. A console table may be helpful as a quick place to toss keys or some mail aside. The rule of three is applicable when adjusting what should be placed on the table. This can range from a lamp, tray and some flowers or photo frames with some art and books.

LESS IS MORE
There is no pressure if you choose to show a more simplistic style rather than mixing vibrant designs. The minimalist approach can construct a neat outcome that enhances the natural colours of the property without being too overwhelming.

EYES UP HERE
The confined space of an entryway is a good opportunity to show off architectural features that present a larger area, such as high ceilings. There is also the choice to embrace a variety of eye-catching colourful patterns and geometric shapes to bring a wow factor.

PLEASE COME IN
A neutral palette brings out a warm and inviting entryway for guests coming inside. You may also want to incorporate some natural wood tones and earthy colours that emphasizes an open home!
