The entryway to your home is the first thing your visitors will see when visiting your home. It’s also one of the places you’ll see the most. The entryway is like the first page of a book, it needs to be beautiful and gripping, reflecting the rest of the story properly.

Whether you have a small entryway or a large entryway, big windows or no windows at all, these home entryway design ideas are easy to implement and will make a huge difference in the overall look of your entryway.

Hangers, nice hangers.

Your entryway shouldn’t only be pretty, it should also be practical. Nice vintage (or modern) hangers take care of both aspects. Don’t overdo it, 2-5 hangers is enough. Make sure they are high quality and stand out. You can find very nice hangers on Etsy.

Mirror, of course.

Not only do you want to make sure you look perfect before you go out, but a mirror will also add a sense of space to an otherwise crammed entryway. Round mirrors are perfect company for a home entryway.

Somewhere to sit.

Whether it’s a little bench (which is the best option) or a chair or even a sofa, your entryway needs a place to sit. Whether it’s for putting on your shoes (or taking them off) or just to add that little sense of homeliness to your entryway, if that’s even a word.


This entryway is beautiful! First of all, the practical and beautiful natural wood bench and then the artwork. You must have artwork in your entryway. As we said, your home entryway is the first page to the book, you want it to be as beautiful as possible.

Plants, plants, plants.

If you don’t have plants in your home yet, is it even a home? Your entryway must have plants, the transition between the outside world into the inside world of a home could be dull and boring, but adding a proper amount of plants, makes the transition smooth and exciting. Add plants to your entryway design. You won’t regret it.
