Upon visiting your home, people may first see your entrance hall. It also serves as somewhere that welcomes you back when you have been out. Due to this, you may want to think about how you can streamline getting in and out of your home, as well as making it somewhere you like to spend time, no matter how brief. There may be ways that you can also use this space to communicate with others in the house, as well as keep yourself organized more efficiently.
Make it more interesting.
When you have spent a lot of time decorating the rest of your home, you may not want your entrance hall to seem drab in comparison. As with the other rooms, you could consider adding some personal touches to make it more pleasing to the eye. Some tiled pictures for your wall can help show your guests what matters most to you, such as family and friends. They can also be nice to view as you walk through the space. Choosing various shapes can allow you to create a quirky collage that stands out, as opposed to plain rectangular frames.
Many people find themselves in a rush when leaving the house. It could be that you need to get the kids to school, are running late for work, or simply want to get the grocery shop over and done with. Due to this, you may find that you have forgotten something important. Creating your own pin board to display in the entrance hall can allow you to leave notes for other household members, keep your shopping list close by, and even pin-up useful reminders for the future. If you have young children around, it can be important to hang this board high enough, so it is out of reach of little fingers but not so high that it isn’t easily usable. Getting into a routine of checking the board could make those moments of forgetfulness a thing of the past.
Keep shoes out of the way.
It can be incredibly frustrating to search through a mountain of shoes to find a matching pair, especially if you are in a rush. Placing a shoe organizer in your entrance hall can allow you to keep shoes together and even store them in a way that makes it easy for each person to find what they need. Some designs may also feature a built-in bench, which can make putting them on and taking them off significantly easier and look rather chic and stylish in your hallway.
Decorating an entrance hall may not provide as many options as a larger room, but that doesn’t mean it needs to be left boring. You may be able to find ways to add a personal touch to this space and even make it easier to get on with your tasks for the day. Use one corner to keep seasonal decor items. Add a spring wreath to the front door.
