If your entryway is looking bland and dull (or worse, there’s not much space to make do for an entryway at all), here are great ideas that will make the first few square feet you step onto much more welcoming than it currently seems. 

What are the benefits of a great-looking entry? Apart from the obvious fact that it makes entering your home a much more pleasant experience, it also allows you a place to park your keys, bag, umbrella, or shoes, or lets you pause and check yourself before heading out the door.

Scroll down below for ideas on how to create entryways in small spaces.

A bold print or painting is a great way to welcome entrants into your home, while bowls can serve as catch-alls, and a stool lets one rest before entering or leaving the house.

Framed photos of each household member—plus a few pictures of memorable getaways—is a nice sight to see when you open the door. A bag, hat, and umbrella rack is a great spot to park those items that would normally cause clutter inside the house.

Is your entryway too small and narrow? A floating shelf can serve as a table to place mail and keys, while small drawers underneath it can carry other loose items, like coins.

Paint the inside part of your door a bold or bright colour and make it more visually interesting with glossy white trim. A black vanity-like entryway table lets you check yourself before stepping out.

Great wallpaper and wall sconces frame the foyer table and mirror, creating a separate entryway in a small open space.

Here, the wallpaper is used in all the walls, but a simple arrangement of console table, framed mirror, lamps, and flowers make for an interesting tableau near the front door.

If you’ve got an anteroom in your own space, hang artwork gallery style on the largest wall. A wall-hung console doesn’t consume as much space as a regular table does, which means you can still add a bench to use when taking off or putting on shoes.

Hallway too narrow for a console? A bench is sufficient enough, while floor tiles with a border mimic the look of a runner.

A red Oriental lacquer cabinet may also act as a console for the foyer. Continue the Asian feel of this entryway with other elements like orchids and an antique jewelry box.

Instead of a table, place an assortment of hooks—the more varied, the merrier—on the wall behind your door, from which you can hang keys, bags, jackets, and umbrellas.

A really small and low side table can also act as a foyer table in really tight spaces. Pair with a standout print to make it more noticeable.

A slab of plywood painted slate gray separates this modern foyer from the rest of the open space. Hooks hung below waist level allow kids to hang up their own bags and coats.

If your front door opens immediately into a room, like the living area, create an entryway by using a console or credenza to separate the narrow walk-in space from the rest of the room.
