Home Essentials for a Beautiful Entryway
Your entryway leaves an important impression on your house guests; after all, it’s the very first thing they see! We're obsessed with beautiful entry ways, which you probably guessed if you're following our Instagram feed. In one of our design boards, we curated a few key pieces to make sure the entrance to your home is inviting, functional, and in alignment with your style.
Wall Accents for the Win
No matter what your home’s style is, bare walls can leave an entryway feeling cold. Don’t be afraid to dress them up with a creative wall display using mirrors, art, or even varying sizes of framed wallpaper. The options out there are endless, so you can accomplish whatever look you want, from minimal to eclectic.
Stairs That Are Stare-Worthy
Like this designer points out, “stairs are an extension of your entryway.” These days, we’re seeing a variety of gorgeous stair runners, which can add a pop of color and/or pattern to your entryway, as well as warm up a staircase that feels cold. If you love your wooden staircase, paint the risers a vibrant color or let the wood stand alone in all its natural glory. Whatever you decide, the absolute last thing you want people to notice is a hideous baby gate. Many options on the market are a total eye sore. Invest in an attractive solution like The Stair Barrier that will complement your entryway decor rather than detract from it. Plus, when your guests are adults-only, you can roll it to the side, allowing your beautiful staircase to be on full display.
Functionality at its Finest
The entryway also gets a great deal of traffic, and guests bring with them a host of items, including shoes, jackets, and umbrellas. For this reason, a functional entryway is also key. Items like benches so guests can sit to remove shoes and attractive storage solutions, like a woven basket to add texture, will help keep your entryway clean and organized.
