Make a statement with your entryway

Make a statement with your entryway

The entryway can be easily overlooked when decorating your home, but the truth is it makes a lasting impression. Here are a few do’s and don’ts to make the most of this space.

Do …

  1. Reflect your style. Choose an entryway table that speaks to the overall feel of your home — be it bold, minimalist or rustic. This sets the tone and gives your guests a great first impression.

  2. Use the “rule of three.”Avoid cluttering this space with small decorations. Instead, choose up to three statement pieces such as a large mirror on the wall, a unique lamp and vase with long stems. Keeping this space sparse will make it look clean and welcoming.

Don’t …

  1. Stash your stuff. A pile of mail and mismatched shoes shouldn’t be the first things your guests see. Add baskets for shoes, use a tray to catch mail, and tuck keys, sunglasses and other miscellaneous items into a drawer.

  2. Ignore function. Add a bench with throw pillows for guests to sit while taking off their shoes and include a coat tree or wall hooks for bags and jackets. When entertaining, move the majority of your items to a nearby closet to give your guests priority.
