Do you have an organized entryway?
A beautiful and welcoming home starts with a nice entryway that is just as beautiful. It doesn’t have to be anything over the top, just a little touch of creativity, to give it a good vibe.
But before you start the fun part, the first thing you have to do is to declutter, so that there is enough room for functional storage units and organizers. When you’re done with that, you can look for a mudroom bench that looks good paired with a pretty rug.
Things might get a bit complicated if your entryway is small, but that’s where we step in. Take a short tour of these 13 beautiful entryway ideas you can easily DIY, that will also help you declutter, organize, and give your entryway the makeover it deserves.
1. Circle Chain Entryway Mirror
You can easily impress your guests with a good-looking entryway by adding a circle chain to your mirror. When it comes to the shape of the mirror, a round one will look better and more stylish compared to a square one.
You can achieve this look by mounting a round mirror on a wood round, then hanging it on the wall with the help of metallic gold or silver chains and hooks.
2. Coat Rack
Often times you have no idea what to do with the wall space behind the main entrance door, so you might leave it empty or add a mirror or a painting. Both of these ideas look good and make your home feel a bit more welcoming, but if you’re looking for something more practical and functional, a coat rack might be the best idea.
You can easily DIY by installing a coat rack or a display shelf with knobs. If you want to take an extra step, you can paint it in your favorite colors.
3. Wall Shelf
Entryways don’t need a lot of effort to look good, but a small touch of creativity goes a long way. You can easily install a wall shelf that has a mountain peak style. Furthermore, you can decorate it with some small plants and add some knobs to make it a practical coat rack as well.
If you want to be extra, you can think of something you want your entryway to transmit, such as a beachy vibe. If you choose something like this, you can paint the shelf in earthy and lighter colors, such as nude, baby blue, white, and powder pink, and maybe add a few shells to bring the whole look together.
4. Add a rug
A nice, high-quality rug is a perfect item to add to a small entryway and make it look bigger than it actually is. You can choose from a bunch of colors, sizes, shapes, and prints, but get one that looks good in combination with the other things in your home, to achieve a stylish and modern look.
5. Boot planter
Nothing says “Welcome to my home” better than a boot planter under your entry shelf that makes you think of nature and sunny days. You’ll immediately forget that you have a small entryway when you’ll see how cute and natural your decor is.
