11 Hacks for Creating an Entry Way When You Don’t Have One
When guests walk into your home, what is the first thing they see? Let’s be real: Those of us with small spaces know that it’s a luxury to have a separate, stylish room just for coats, shoes, purses and all those things you drop when you walk in the door. But that doesn’t mean we can’t create a place to welcome us home. As our own Brit reveals in our very first, soon-to-be-released book Homemakers, entry ways are where you set the scene for your home decor. Check out these 11 creative entry ways for inspo that you can implement in your home.
2. Use Wallpaper: Wallpaper is a great way to make a small space stand up on its own two feet. While it might not be a separate room, the wallpaper creates the illusion of a separate space. (via Nalle’s House)
3. Storage: Every foyer, whether it’s wall space, a closet or a room, needs to have plenty of storage. These understated metallic hooks bring practicality, while the wood embellishments add some rustic charm. (via A Cup of Jo)
7. Art: Whether your style is an inspirational print or a painting of a flowery meadow, include some art in your entry space to give yourself a boost before you leave and a lift when you get home. (via Dream Green DIY)
