Winter is coming. Let's have an entryway rethink and check some hallway decor ideas! After all, taking the first steps into a welcoming entry space is the moment you feel you're home. It's also the first impression guests get of your home, so it's well worth sprucing it up a little. Don't you think? Hall furniture matters! So don't just treat this space as a place you have to get through to see the rest of your home. Here are a few tips to help you transform your entrance hall.
Bring in a practical Console Table
Hall storage is absolutely key if you want to maintain tidiness. Often hallway space is limited, leaving little room for lots of accessories or other decorative items. If you have a small and narrow entryway hallway storage is a must. A console table in close proximity to your front door is an ideal choice to keep your hallway organised. You can store your keys, wallet or pens and can also hang a mirror above the hall table to make the space seem wider and brighter, as well as giving you the chance to double-check your appearance before you walk out the door.
A console table offers an option of storage beneath with shoe racks, drawers and shelves. You can also keep track of all your mail by having a designated spot for everything that drops onto your doormat. Don't forget to display styling decorations to brighten up the space.
Organise a hallway closet
Never forget shoe storage. A shoe rack is the best choice to solve 'shoes everywhere!' problem in a hall. And to be even more space-efficient, you can choose a shoe cabinet that isn't very deep.
A hall tree with a bench and coat rack can also work well in super small spaces. It has the advantage of giving damp jackets and hats the space to dry, plus it occupies one single wall. Hanging a handy hook board or storage shelf can also be a great idea. Use it for keys, letters or dog leads.
Enlarge your hallway
Who wouldn't welcome being surrounded by the warmth of bright colours? Bursting with light, the sunny yellow door with a geometric paint design and a sandy runner will make your hallway feel bigger. Don't forget motif or aesthetic pattern wallpaper as a decorating option for the entryway. It will definitely help make a small hall seem larger and add elegance and poise to large entrance halls lacking character. The real design trick is the hallway mirror which creates an illusion of a wider space. Make it the natural choice for space and your hallway will be a pleasure to walk into.
