Tips for Decorating a Welcoming Entryway

Your home’s entryway sets the tone for your guests’ experience. Whether your entry is a formal foyer, mudroom, or an apartment layout that immediately opens up into the kitchen and living room, it’s all about putting together furniture, décor, rugs, and lighting that create a wow factor as soon your guests walk in the front door. It should be as welcoming and attractive as possible — but how should you decorate to create this feeling? Here are a few tips to follow.

First, before your guests even enter through the front door, impress them with your welcome mat. To follow are the rugs in the doorway. Combine style and functionality by buying sturdy runners that look like chic rugs but will hold up over time, even as your guests step on them.

Next, choose furniture that serves a few purposes. For instance, a bench for a place to take off shoes and store them, keeping things neat and tidy. 

Finally, don’t neglect lighting, both natural and artificial. The amount of light in your entryway can set the tone for your whole home. Lighting candles will also add that feeling of comfort and send delightful smells through the air.
