How to Create an Inviting Entry Hall

Your entry hall is the first thing most people see when they enter your home. You want the first impression of your home to be positive and welcoming. The décor should also reflect your personality and taste. It is easy to achieve a warm and inviting feel. There are many comfortable touches that you can add to your entry hall. First, a chair or bench will provide a good place to rest or pull on boots. A table to hold mail, keys and collectables is also useful addition to the space. If there is not enough room for a table or chest, a shelf will work as well. A mirror is a great idea, for vanity and to enlarge the feel of the space. An umbrella holder, coat hooks on the wall, or a coat rack, provide an accessible place to store guest’s belongings. A clock for the wall, tabletop or shelf will advise of the time. Large vases on the floor with arrangements will add a finishing touch. Matching accessories, such as candleholders with coordinated candles, sconces on the wall or vases filled with fresh flowers will complete the look of the space. Overall, a few thoughtful touches will bring a warm and inviting atmosphere to your entry. Visit to see the large selection of furniture, wall hangings and accessories available for your entry hall.
