Hallway, half-wall, living room, kitchen… you don’t need a perfect entryway to make the perfect space for you. We’ve put together some easy tips to help turn that “front door area” into an elegant foyer, designed for your needs. So, what is your home calling for?
Separation: Establishing an entryway
Creating an entryway isn’t as difficult as you think! Try adding a simple accent piece to the wall near the door or making use of an oversized area rug. You can also help to define the space by using a couch or bookshelf as a faux-wall. This will create the illusion of a hallway, without the expense of building.
Storage: Creating space
Need space for shoes while hiding the mess? Opt for built-in storage that offers space for drawers or baskets. This will help to clear the clutter, while encouraging friends to kick-off their shoes and stay awhile.
Durability: Choosing flooring that holds up
Entryways have to stand up to a lot–muddy boots, paw prints, wet umbrellas–you know how it goes. Keep your entrance easy to clean and looking pristine. If you lean toward a more modern vibe, concrete floors might be the way to go; they’re durable and unique. If you want a more traditional look, check out luxury vinyl tile (LVT). It comes in an assortment of stone and wood looks, while being able to withstand the toughest of teenage storms.
Personality: Adding that creative touch
If you’ve got the space but are missing that pop of personality, we’ve got a few ideas for you. For a quick project, an area rug can help to add that touch (and save your floors). If you want something a little more permanent, try creating the look of an area rug with tile!
