By incorporating an antique entryway bench to your hall you are not only beautifying your home but you are offering a warm welcome to all who enter your humble abode. Your guests will be greeted by the presence of a stunning piece of antique entryhall furniture that symbolizes stability, it symbolizes a readiness to receive and welcome either the tired visitor while he takes a little rest and comfortably removes his heavy coating or shoes, or the guest who wants a place to put his possessions down like his bag, or hat or books.
For additional versatility and practicality look for an antique entryway bench with storage that will enable you to maintain order and tidiness in your entryhall instead of having shoes lying around and winter gear just piled up next to them. With storage space to accommodate for such items your antique entryway bench will not just look great, it will not only add a sense of sophistication and style to your entryway but it will also thrill all who enter your home and set a wonderfully warm tone for the duration of their stay.
Area rugs are one of the most important features of any entryway. There's room for an area rug in even in the most limited and basic spaces. A rug has the ability to quietly support the decorating in an entry or to act as the main decorating feature. A custom area rug combined with a runner can join a foyer with a hall or staircase-linking the features, creating an inviting space, and helping to enhance the flow of movement through the area.
Fortunately, entry decorating can be broken down into a few simple components: wall color, floor covering, furniture, wall decor, and lighting. Although entryways are usually restricted in size; this limitation actually works to the decorator's advantage. The process of elimination will reduce the number of possibilities and make choices easier! For instance, some entries obviously have no space for furniture. In these situations, the style must be created entirely through the wall color, floor covering, and wall decor. No need to hunt for the perfect table lamp if there's no room for a table!
