5 Ideas to Liven Up Your Entryway
The entryway is the first space in your home a visitor sees. From new flooring to fun décor, make that first impression even better with one or more of these ideas for an appealing and attractive entryway.
This is a practical suggestion especially if you live in cold parts of the country where visitors might want to remove galoshes or overshoes before heading inside your home. Even a very small space can accommodate a stool or two and a bench in a larger entryway can provide additional storage in addition to seating.
Put Down a Colorful Rug
Choose a small, durable area rug that can stand up to rain, mud and snow and can be easily swept or shaken clean. A bright spot of color will add an instant pop and be welcome on a gray day.
Hang a Mirror
A mirror will reflect light, brightening the space and making it feel bigger, and allow visitors to check their appearance on the way into or out of the house. A nice wooden frame around it contributes dimension, texture, and warmth.
A hardwearing tile floor can be a good choice in a busy entryway. A small space means minimal costs for the materials and installation, and coordinating with other flooring is a snap since tiles come in so many styles and colors.
Bring in Some Greenery
A houseplant always says “Welcome” and adds life to a small and static space. If there is insufficient light for a real plant, an artificial silk tree or potted plant will bring color and texture to the entryway, and can even be decorated for the season.
With a little thought and planning, you can turn this utilitarian space into a bright, charming, and welcoming spot in your home. For more suggestions, reach out to CMA Flooring.
