First impressions truly are lasting impressions so it’s important to make sure your home reflects the look you’re truly going. The entryway is the first representation of what your home looks like on the inside. In order to make it look its best, it’s wise to take a few things into consideration as you make sure your entryways match the rest of your decor.

Choose Neutral Furniture

The entryway tends to be the area where people tend to put on their shoes. They also use this area to store their coats and purses. Knowing this, it’s a good idea to purchase shoe cubicle and a coat rack in this area. It’s also good to purchase a small bench for when guests want to sit down and put on their shoes. Purchase these pieces of furniture in neutral colors like white, beige or brown. These colors tend to match most designs.

Add Pops Of Color

Take a look at the dominant color in the rest of your decor. If your decor is navy blue and pink, add those colors to the entryway. Hang a canvas that displays art in shades of blue. Purchase a fun clock that has a pink frame. To tie the look together, you can even purchase a navy blue runner for the entryway. It’s best to add color in the areas that are easy to swap in and out.

Paint The Entry Doors

Many homeowner’s associations have strict rules on the colors you can use for your exterior door. However, you can usually paint your interior doors any color you please. One of the best ways to coordinate your entryway with your decor is to use replacement entry doors. You should also think about doing a new paint job. Allow the paint color to make a dynamic statement. If you have a lot of green shades in your decor, choose deep forest green for the entryway. Don’t be afraid to be bold and make a statement in this area.

Utilize Mirrors

Mirrors literally reflect what’s in front of them. You can accent your decor by adding mirrors to the entryway. Mirrors make a space seem larger. Mirrors are also helpful for those times when you’d like to get a last look before heading out the door.

When it’s time to decorate your home, cohesiveness is essential. Even if you have different colors in all of the rooms, there needs to be a theme that ties everything together. If you don’t make this effort, it’ll look like a circus house. As long as you implement these tips and build gradually, the entryway will perfectly reflect the rest of your abode.
