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!
If you have kids, it would be best for you to look for a rack with a shelf and sturdy pegs below them. Scarves, hats, mittens and many others can be set over shelves and allow the morning to be less of a rush or demand. Small children will feel more comfortable since they would be able to hang their jackets up over the peg. The rack can even be specified with name tags for each child inside the house.
