The entryway plays an important role in making the first impression of any home. Because it is the first thing people encounter as soon as they enter the house. No matter how beautifully decorated your home is, if the entryway doesn’t match the decor style, the entire set can look inconsistent. But fortunately, it’s not difficult to create an inviting and functional entryway that complements your home’s decor style. Incorporating simple elements like mirrors, plants, console tables, artwork, rugs, and pendant lights can not only improve the appearance of your entryway but also increase the functionality of your home. For this reason, we have put together some beautiful and functional entryway ideas that can inspire you.
In an open plan house or a studio apartment, regardless of the design style, it is a bit difficult to create an entryway that complements the interior design. Because since the room is open, there is too much space to work. However, the biggest hurdle is that there is no clearly defined area for an entryway. To address this problem, you must first create it. You can create a small entrance area using a sofa or bench. This is one of the most wonderful and functional entryway ideas for an open plan house. If you use a sofa, place a bench against it and make sure it matches the rest of the furniture or complements the decor style of your home. This way your entryway not only looks amazing but also adds functionality to your home as you can place your handbag or other portable items on the bench.
Whether it’s an open plan environment, a large room or a compact home with minimalist interior design, you can never go wrong with a black and white entryway. Use black and white patterned rugs on the floor. Or you can stick a black and white patterned wallpaper or use black and white colors to create an illusion on the side wall. You can read our Wallpaper vs Illusion article to decide which one suits your entrance best. This will help you create a seamless design as it will suit almost any interior style. You can place a lacquer or console table with drawer storage or hang a white or black framed mirror above it. To personalize the space, you can incorporate paintings or place artwork on the table.
