If you don't like the idea of hanging a mirror in the entryway, consider creating a gallery of family photos. You can create your own personal "Hall of Fame" in the entryway by displaying framed photos all over the walls. If you have an artistic touch, hang the frames in an unexpected pattern to add visual interest to the walls and draw attention to your photos.
For a warm, tranquil setting to greet guests as well as those who pass through the doors on a daily basis, an indoor fountain is an excellent furnishing accessory. The sound of trickling water is soothing and pleasant, sure to calm all those who come through your doors. For any art lover the entryway is the first opportunity to show off your collection and state your taste to your guests.
Make sure the walls of your entryway are painted in a fresh, inviting color that compliments the rest of your home. Many home owners overlook the entryway when they begin painting projects, but this is a mistake! You don't want to welcome a guest inside to see sterile white walls. Make your entryway warm and inviting with a fresh coat of color.
Of course, no guest should have to take off their shoes and then walk across a cold floor. Make sure your entryway is outfitted with a soft, comfortable area rug. Not only will the rug be cozy for everyone's feet, but it also adds another element of design into the space. Choose a beautiful area rug that coordinates with your paint color and wall hangings. An area rug will give your entryway the finishing touch to become a warm, welcoming place for guests to enter your home.
