I love a great entry way. I think it should make a statement when you walk into a home no matter what you style of home decor is. If you are coming through the front door, the entry way is the first thing guests will see, so why not wow them! Even if you don’t have a large, impressive entry way (we certainly don’t), there are plenty of things that you can do.
There are several ways you can update your entry hall without spending a lot. It is amazing how the little touches can make such a big difference. Of course, half of my house is from Target, so it is my go to for great budget items. Plus, I don’t feel bad when in a year or so I decide I want to change it up.
I think all of these things can make a big difference in an entry way. We just painted our front door, so there will be a post about that later this month. Adding some color to an entry way makes it feel really cheerful and inviting. It has taken a little getting used to because it has been a little bit of a shock, but I am amazed at the difference in our entry hall with the door painted!
Depending on what sort of space you have, I love adding a little bench or a long narrow table in an entry hall. And this isn’t something you need to spend much on either. Target, IKEA, Wayfair and Home Goods are all great places to find pieces like that for not too much money. And you can always give it a little facelift if it isn’t exactly what you want. Like I said, a little paint (or some cushions) can really go a long way!
One other thing – don’t be afraid to get personal, even in your entry way. When it comes to framed pictures, I love seeing actual family or wedding pictures. And I think adding those personal touches make a space that more inviting and homey (but not in a bad way!). So definitely make your entry way warm and inviting with those personal touches.
