Entryway Decorating Ideas for Small Spaces

The entryway is an overlooked yet important part of every home. This boundary between the outdoors and your living space should be stylish and inviting regardless of your floor space. Singapore homes have limited square footage, but there are plenty of tricks on how you can style your entryway to extend a huge welcome to your guests. Here are ways how:

1. A nice place to hang out


Make your entryway a stylish yet functional space. Transform this little nook into a useful corner by mounting wall racks where your guests can hang their umbrellas, coats, jackets, and even their bags. You can also add a dainty little side table where they can put down their stuff as they take off or put on their shoes.

2. Go big or go home!


Welcome your guests with an oversized mirror. Mirrors have an immense power to create an illusion of a bigger space. Not only that, they can also make your home feel more inviting and look brighter. Do not forget to put a low console or a bench to minimise the clutter here.

3. Add visual interest.


Just because you have a small space does not mean you can’t decorate it. All you need is a graphic wallpaper, a nice mirror, and a dapper console to turn your small entryway into a modish space.

4. Fresh and fab


Do not complicate things when you have a small space to decorate. Make your entryway smell and look fresh by adding potted plants and indoor blooms. Include a small entryway bench that can double as storage space.

5. Be Boho-ld!


Be bold in turning your small space into an unforgettable entryway. Try having a Bohemian-inspired foyer that will unleash the boho chic in you—include a woven rug, a rattan or wooden furniture, some metal baskets for storage, and patterned pillows.

6. Try the minimalist route.


Ditch the clutter and make a lasting impression by showcasing a minimalist entryway. A narrow hanging shelf paired with a huge mirror is the perfect solution for a small entryway. Add hooks under the shelf for extra storage.

7. Accentuate the wall.


Since there’s not a lot of space to decorate, you can always use the wall to make a statement. Paint it with a solid colour to create a good first impression.
