Advice for Entryway Furniture

Add a mirror on the wall

Use a mirror to compensate for a lack of natural light. Mirrors can also make small entryways feel larger.

Find a place to perch

If you have a spacious entryway, add chairs to allow guests to remove their shoes with greater ease. Seating easily creates a welcoming room.

Hook your items for safe keeping

Use hooks to provide space for coats. If the entryway is too small for a console table, hooks can be the perfect place to keep keys safe.

Organize your mail with style

Use a mail organizer to keep things tidy. Choosing either a rustic or modern organizer can prepare guests for the theme of your house.

Go green with a plant

Use greenery to make the transition between the outside world and your house a little smoother. Use faux plants if natural light is scarce.
