Make an Entrance

Create a lasting first impression in your entryway. Used every day yet often overlooked, it’s the perfect place to make a style statement. A well-designed entrance not only adds value to your home, but it also sets the mood for the rest of your interior.

Welcome visitors by thinking about your lighting. Install a dimmer switch in your entryway so that you can adjust to produce a warm, soft glow or to shine bright on a rainy day.


For an attractive way to organize bags, hats and coats in your entryway, use cabinet knobs as storage hooks. When installing, remember to check for studs or use anchors so the knobs are sturdy and secure.


Don’t let spring showers create a wet floor—repurpose a garden planter as an umbrella stand. It’s a simple, affordable way to instantly add character and organization to your entrance.


Create a focal point with a distressed, vintage-inspired chest. Look for curved designs, rich finishes and deep drawers for a storage-friendly statement piece. Plus, long legs allow for extra storage space underneath.


Greet guests with a decorative area rug that also acts as a catch-all for incoming dirt, helping protect floors while adding a warm welcome to your entryway.

quick tip

If you don’t have a staircase, you can create the same effect by painting a graphic pattern on an accent wall or by applying wallpaper. Another eye-catching way to make an impact in your entryway is to stencil the ceiling, which highlights your light fixture.
