First impressions indeed are lasting impressions, so it’s essential to make sure your home reflects the look you’re genuinely going. The entryway is the first representation of what your home looks like on the inside. To make it look, wow! It’s wise to consider a few things 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 a shoe cubicle and a coat rack in this area. It’s also good to buy 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 powerful 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.
Mirrors reflect what’s in front of them. You can accent your decor by adding mirrors to the entryway. Mirrors make space seem more significant. 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 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 correctly reflect the rest of your abode.
