11 Entryway Decorating Ideas That Make a Stunning First Impression

Jonathan Steinitz

If you only need one reason to invest in decorating your entryway, let it be this: Everybody needs a good spot to make an entrance. But even for those among us who prefer to come and go with less of a to-do, an entryway space serves a functional purpose. It’s somewhere to take off your shoes, to set your keys, or to hang up your coat (and a place to reverse any of these things on your way out). An entryway is also the first impression inside the home, the room that sets the tone for the rest of the space. Think of your entry as your very own three-dimensional welcome mat (but much more chic, of course). It’s well-travelled, but most people don’t spend much time there once inside. 

So how do you approach decorating an entryway that’s both heavy traffic and high speed? With high-impact decorative accents that set a stylish tone and well-appointed vignettes that say hello from the inside. Whether your entry is a formal foyer or a modified mudroom, it’s all about putting together furniture, décor, rugs, and lighting that create wow factor right when you walk in the front door.
