Decorating your home's entrance might seem like a challenge, especially when it comes to integrating convenient storage units to an aesthetic design. Here are three tips to help you plan the decoration of your entrance hall.
These tips will help you add storage space in an elegant setting. For a harmonious decor, make sure you match the style of your entrance to nearby rooms
It's not always necessary to buy storage furniture specifically designed for an entryway. Consider using either bedroom, dining or living room furniture that is no longer in use and turn it into a unique piece by repainting it or changing its knobs. You can also inject a touch of glamour in the area by purchasing a new mirrored console table.
Forget plastic bins and awkward shoe racks. A beautiful bowl placed on a cabinet in the entrance can hold mail, change or keys. Shelves and hooks can be found in almost any size to satisfy your needs. Finally, a simple large basket that is easily accessible can hide sneakers or flip flops with style.
Personnalize and add colour into your entrance hall by adding a rug, bold lighting, a fresh coat of paint or wallpaper. Complete your decor with fresh flowers, family photos or make a statement with a unique piece of art. Be ingenious and use the black chalkboard paint that can serve the whole family!
