Two weeks ago, I wrote about all the problems I have with my front entrance and many of you could relate. In fact, after sharing my dreadful entryway, I received an email asking if I would share some tips for organizing and beautifying a front entrance. Since I’m currently working on the plans and sourcing for my own transformation, I thought I’d walk you through the process.
First off, I must share this lovely entryway I spotted on Pinterest as inspiration. It’s so fresh and inviting, isn’t it? Definitely a look I’m going for!
How to Freshen Your Front Entryway
Step One: Purge anything you no longer use and store occasional or seasonal items elsewhere.
Step Two: Provide storage baskets and/or hooks for each family member.
Step Three: Apply soft coloured paint or wallpaper to freshen up the walls.
Step Four: Replace lack-lustre builder light fixtures with an interesting style, such as pendants or hurricane lanterns.
Step Five: Choose an area rug for design and function.
Step Six: Add a small table, bench or stool if the space allows. Hang a mirror and/or artwork and accessorize.
Have you done anything to update your entryway lately? Do you have any tips for creating a welcoming space?
Have a bright and sunny day!
