How to Create an Impressive Entry Hall

They say that first impressions, always last. One of the main reasons why an entry hall is an important part of your interior design is that it will be the first thing you and your guests will see. Think of the entry hall as the gateway to your home, the paint colour, lighting and furniture must make a mark.

One of the first things to keep in mind in creating the interior design of your entry hall is the amount of space you’ll be working with. In order to make a welcoming and bold statement, we’ve gathered four design ideas to impress!

1. Maximum Impact

To get that wow factor, go all the way with a pendant light, console and unique mirror combination. Whether modern, industrial or vintage, these pieces can be a sneak peek to your overall interior design.

Establish your entry hall design with the Vaasa Tyson Modern Danish Style Console or Replica Seppo Koho Atto Pendant Light.

2. Functional Storage

Maximize your space and control the clutter with functional storage pieces. Give your mail or house keys a home without the chaos. The entry hall need not be full of storage, in fact one or two pieces can do the trick.

Try the Vaasa Marlon Danish Inspired Wide Sideboard or Clarence Modern Drawer Chest for a minimalist look.

3. Bright Hues

Adding colour instantly livens up the mood for your home. If you want it cheerful, dramatic or airy, here’s a few colour options to try:

Stand out walls – Add a bright shade like pink or yellow for a bubbly entrance or wallpaper in a daring print.
Coloured seating – A bench in a vivid hue will add just the dash of colour especially to an all-neutral palette. It also provides additional seating when entertaining.
Window effects – If your entryway has windows, why not add vibrant coloured curtains for instant fun?
Rich rugs – Rugs in whimsical patterns or bright colours can instantly add charm to any room.

4. It’s all in the Details

The little things like a photograph, painting, plant or flower arrangement can tie your whole look together. Accessories after all, are also a home’s best friend.
