The entryway of your home is more than just a place to take off your shoes. It can showcase your personal style, act as added storage, and can create an overall feeling for your home. Since the entryway is the first thing a guest sees, it is key to create a welcoming space. Ensuring your entryway is well-lit, clean, and tidy, and inviting can make all the difference!
Make a Statement
Too much white space can create a cold feeling. The addition of a statement wall, bold mirror, or fun area rug can be the perfect way to spruce up an entryway and add some colour! If you have an entryway bench, try incorporating decorative pillows, shoe cubbies, or wicker baskets for textured detail. Play with the five senses! Choose your favourite candle to place at the entryway, so when guests arrive, they are greeted with a burst of aroma. Don’t be afraid to show your personality in this space! Not only will it leave a lasting impression, but it will also make you feel proud to share it with others.
Light It Up
Good lighting is not just for the bathroom. Nothing says “hello” more than a brightly lit room! Natural light is always the best light; however, pot lights are a great addition to brighten any space. For personality and visual interest, try a pendant light fixture. They can help bring a space together by creating depth and make the space feel more complete.
Storage space does not need to be messy! One of the best ways to add storage in an entryway is the addition of a long cabinet or entryway cubbies. Both storage options create depth, a focal point, and act as added storage. Baskets are another great option for shoes, pet accessories, and other odds an ends such as umbrellas.
Stay true to you! Although it is important to make a statement, it is also important to consider your personality and lifestyle. Whatever it may be, design your entryway around your needs. If you have a big family, you might want to showcase your memories through a gallery wall. If you have a love for plants, you may want to create a plant-inspired entryway.
Although décor can assist in sprucing up an entryway, a bold re-design creates a more lasting impression. Contact our team of Advisors to create a space that is unique to you. Call (604) 264-7366 to speak with an Advisor today!
