Whether you live in a small apartment or a spacious abode, your entry decor most likely sets the tone for the entire home. And while some of us might not have a separate mudroom or grand foyer next to the front door, there are ways to create a stylish and budget-friendly entryway mood no matter your square footage.
From a pop of wallpaper to a statement lamp, here are our favorite entrance hallway ideas to help you create a fab first impression.
1. Add wallpaper.
Sure, you may not have all the room in the world for an entryway table, but one thing you can do in almost any small space is added wallpaper right next to the front door. We love how this modern pattern from Feather adds a surprising touch to an otherwise traditional makeover.
Our peel and stick Wallpaper is easy to apply and take off, leaving no adhesive residue. Featuring sharp, vibrant images, Wallpaper patterns are ideal for accent walls, flat surfaces, and temporary installations (like parties!). Available in three floor-to-ceiling sizes.<< More Wallpaper Styles >>
2. Fake an entry hall if you have to.
A lot of homes and apartments don’t have separate space for an entry hall. In fact, the front door may open right into a living room. But fret not. You can add a small credenza with some DIY flair and an area rug to make a first impression that says guests are more than welcome.
A true statement maker. Our versatile mid-century modern inspired credenzas are great for use as TV stands, armoires, bar carts, office cabinets, or the perfect complement to your bedroom set. The vibrant art printed on the doors will make your piece pop in any setting. Available in a warm, natural birch or a premium walnut finish.<< More Credenza Styles >>
3. Put your entry to work.
If you have a busy household with lots of people coming and going, a bench for storing shoes will be the perfect small entryway addition. Pop a plant on top, and mount a wall rack for hanging coats above. In the end, you’ll have a chic and practical pit stop.
Park it in style on this incredibly versatile bench, upholstered with vegan leather featuring all the designs you love. The perfect indoor bench, it will give any space an instant upgrade. Dress it with plush blankets or throw pillows to keep it elegant, but super cush.<< More Bench Styles >>
4. Try some texture on the wall.
Feel like your entrance hallway is too plain? Add some texture to a statement wall with wood slats like these to create a home decor moment that feels both minimalist and impactful. Extra points if you throw in plants and a small storage bench with cozy cushions.
Add throw pillows to whatever room needs an extra dose of comfy. Filled with a fluffy faux down insert, you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style. Available in four sizes and all measurements are made without pillow insert.<< More Throw Pillow Styles >>
5. Hang up hats.
We love entry hallway decorating ideas that involve benches or a well-placed plant. But sometimes just hanging up a few hats is all you need. Use a handful of stylish hooks to keep your headwear readily available when you’re on your way out to the garden.
Our premium Tote Bags are hand-sewn in the U.S.A. and feature a high-quality print that’ll never fade. Constructed with a premium, canvas-like material and double-stitched for quality, our totes make amazing grocery and beach bags.<< More Tote Bag Styles >>
6. Go with a gallery wall in your hall.
Want another way to create an entryway in a smaller space? Hang a gallery wall right next to your front door. To get the look, mix and match frames and photos in various shapes and sizes. A farmhouse bench placed just below will add that extra warm welcome.
Channeling your inner art collector? Frameless and versatile, canvas prints can be hung on your walls or showcased on a flat surface. There’s just something about the canvas that feels so much more arty. Canvas prints available in three sizes.<< More Canvas Styles >>
7. Get a grand light fixture.
If you have tall ceilings, take a page out of interior designer Amber Lewis‘s book. Hang a chandelier in your hallway for some extra wow. We love the juxtaposition of a modern fixture in a rustic setting. But no matter which style you go for, the drama will fit right in.
As experts in the field of sitting down, we thoughtfully crafted our Floor Pillows to be overstuffed, plush, and firm. These cushions never lose their shape, and the high-quality print makes sure the design stays crisp and colorful.<< More Floor Pillow Styles >>
8. Create a conversation space.
Your entrance hallway deserves a few interior design ideas that are unexpected, and this space from Chango & Co. proves it. Just picture yourself having a good catch-up with a friend on these sculptural chairs. The funky furniture makes a stylish statement all on its own but can also be paired with a round mirror, pendant lights, and minimalist art.
From sideshow to show-stopper, our side tables will be a stunning modern accent to your space. Selecting from our wide array of artist’s designs printed with a satin finish on birch wood, you’ll take any room from zero to a hundred. Available in a square or round table top, and black or gold leg colors.<< More Side Table Styles >>
9. Go dramatic with dark paint.
Instead of going with a light and bright color palette, create a moment with dark paint like Heidi Caillier does here. This rich and moody tone gives off a fabulous first impression to anyone who enters. And the paint job even takes the place of wall decor or art.
Our outdoor floor cushions are the super comfy and style-forward option for the boho side of us all. They’re UV coated to protect against fading and water-resistant so you can avoid scrambling to bring them inside whenever there’s a touch of weather. Grab a few to have on hand whenever seating is hard to come by or for a fun option for kids to use out in the yard.<< More Outdoor Floor Cushion Styles >>
