When we talk about a first impression of your home, there’s no denying that the entry way is the best place to add in that ‘wow’ factor. This is the first thing guests, potential buyers, friends, and family see when they walk into your property. So it’s important to make the interior styling in this area fresh, fun, engaging, and professional. Not sure how? We’ve got you covered.
1. Consistent styling is essential
This might seem like common sense, but we find a lot of our clients underestimate the importance of following a styling theme throughout an entire property! Down to the entry way. Recognising the style of your home is the first step – do you have a minimalistic vibe? Classic? Boho? Scandi? The options are endless, but you need to determine what category to follow this through to the very first thing people see when they step into your home.
Creating a consistent colour scheme in your décor will also assist in this. Not only will this be aesthetically pleasing for your guests, but it also creates the illusion of a clean and sophisticated space.
2. Don’t be afraid of furniture in smaller spaces
An entry way to a home can often be a small space, but it’s really how you style it that makes it feel this way. A hallway table is a terrific addition to your entry way as it not only adds a visual appeal but it also allows for extra storage. Adding additional items such as a lamp, small plant, book, candle, or key tray will benefit the style of your property immensely. Turning your house into a home is made easy when you have family photos or personal items on display as soon as your walk in the door.
If you have extra space that needs filling, we recommend investing in a stylish bench for your entry way space. This is an important, functional addition to this area and adds another layer of visual charm while giving you added practicality.
3. Decor is key
If you have a smaller entry way space, adding a mirror opposite the front door can enhance natural light and creating the illusion of expanding the length of the space. Additionally, a statement lighting fixture, such as a large hanging pendant or chandelier, can add style and sophistication to an area that is often neglected. Add a long runner rug for texture and an extra layer of warmth. This screams warm and cozy! Which is what we all want as the feeling for people coming into our homes. Creating that ‘wow’ factor is made easy by choosing décor that speaks to you and the style of your property.
