5 small entrance decoration ideas give a deep first impression


If there is a topic we will never tire of, it is the interior design of a small space. Given the amount of ink we spend on the subject, it’s safe to say that we’re always looking for inspiring ways to make the most of any space, from the living room to the dining room to the bedroom, to the entrance. So, designed by Emily Henderson senior market editor Jess Bunge, it’s no surprise that the well-equipped small space entrance channel keeps us stagnant.

Bunge suggests: “The small entrance can be tricky, so take advantage of the walls.” “There are a lot of affordable and stylish hooks and hooks on the market for hanging jackets and bags. Floating shelves are great for throwing keys and mail. And adding a wall mirror is not only a good thing for the last person, I look very decent? Check, but it will make your space feel bigger and brighter. Punching holes in the wall is frightening, but I promise It is worth doing this.” Needless to say, we fully agree with Bunge.

Scroll through 5 small entrance decoration ideas that will give you a first impression.


1. The Small Entryway With a Cozy Bench and Wood Wall Hooks

If you don’t have a comfortable sitting position, you won’t have a fully equipped primer. In this small space designed by Tessa Hop, a simple bench with a comfortable sheepskin sofa is sure to check all the boxes. The practical wooden wall hooks show the woven bags and the decoration is multiplied.


2. The Small Entryway With a Bench and an Oversize Round Mirror

In this small entrance designed by Amber Interior of Amber Interiors, several decorative pillows are decorated on woven benches. The oversized mirror visually makes the space look and feel bigger, while the tall indoor tree makes the space feel more spacious by making the eyes up.


3. The Small Entryway With a Bench and Faded, Vintage-Inspired Rug

Vintage-inspired rugs with faded wear patterns are ideal for high-flow, small-space entrances. Here, Amber Interiors interior designer Amber Lewis designed retro-style rugs at the entrance, with benches and framed prints to bring outdoor activities indoors.


4. The Small Entryway With a Simple Chair and Peg-Rail Mirror

The number one question I get about the mountain house is: What are you most proud of? I think it's that I didn't clutter it up. I love STUFF and historically I've overdesigned and added too much. So to sit in that house and see the level of restraint that I (we) used makes me feel like I've grown up a bit. Don't get me wrong, I still LOVE beautiful things, but this house was always meant to give our family room to breathe, not more stuff to pick up and style. And yet I still think it has such a design perspective and certainly enough "style." This is also a huge thanks to the design team who really helped remind me at all times to stick to the original intent and not get distracted. So this is "minimal" Emily…what are you? Maximalist? Minimalist? In-betweenist? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #EHDMountainHouseReveal #EHDMountainFixer #EmilyHenderson #interiordesign #design #livingroom #homeinspo #remodelingideas #remodeling #interiors #styling #interiorstyling

For people with small entrances and few non-existences, write down the style notes of Samantha Orley from Orley Interiors and use a semi-circular console table to create a temporary foyer above the front door. Just add a vase to make your home more enjoyable.
