The entryway of your home is the most important part of your home. We may not spend a lot of time in the entryway, but it is the first thing we see when we or anyone else enters our home. You want your entryway to be a beautiful and welcoming place to you and your guests. You can do this with a well decorated entryway table.
The entryway is where we greet friends and family, it welcomes us home, it sends us off into the world. It only makes sense to decorate your entryway to be a welcoming and joyful area.
One way to make your entryway a welcoming place is by adding an entryway table. By adding touches of the outdoors to your front entryway table you create a welcoming environment.
If you have a solid front door add extra light and a mirror to reflect light in the room. Add a few smaller soft touches, like baskets, pillows, or trinkets to your table to finalize your entryway decor.
I have a few examples of welcoming and well decorated entryways I want to share with you today.
Decorating An Entryway: Questions to Ask
Entryways are usually small and sometimes awkward. You have to take your space into consideration when you decorate it. Can if fit a table? What size of table? How can you make the space look larger?
These are all questions that I plan on addressing here. Before we get started though take your space into account. Can you draw the eye up with a large gallery wall? Does the space need to be functional and organized? Is there a closet that can be utilized for organization? Take your entire entryway into consideration before you start making plans for decorating an entryway.
Entryway Table And Entryway Decor
Large Entryway Table To Make A StatementSource
In this first picture from @scoutandnimble you see see several large statement pieces. A lamp on one end of the table and a large bouquet of hydrangeas frame a large round mirror. This mirror reflects more light into the room while complimenting the rustic decor.
This entryway is a go big or come on in type of entryway. Everything in this entryway is on the larger side. If you have the room to go large fill that space in with just a few larger pieces. If you use lots of smaller pieces in such a large entryway the space will feel cluttered and claustrophobic instead of welcoming.
A Chic Farmhouse Entryway Table IdeaSource
The white shiplap wall with the smaller table and drawers is a beautiful way to decorate an entryway. Keeping it simple with a clean white shiplap wall makes the room feel larger and welcoming.
The simple arrangement of pink flowers brings the outdoors in plus adds a soft splash of color to a neutral space. Adding a lantern instead of a lamp balances the table without having a large shade possibly impede movement in the entryway.
Entryway Table With BasketsSource
I adore the minimalist look of this entryway. The clean simple rustic wood table and the large print stand out and make the room feel larger. The baskets keep the eyes flowing from the top of the large picture all the way down to the floor in one fluid motion. The small touches of flowers soften the look making it an inviting entryway to your guests.
With the simplicity of the table you could easily do a large mirror framed in the same wood as your table. Additionally, if one large piece isn’t your style consider down 6 small pieces in two columns to create a large gallery wall.
Small Rustic Entryway Table and A Touch of LilacSource
I adore this farmhouse entryway. The matching raw wood in the lamp and table make the bouquet of bright fresh lilacs stand out. The mirror makes this entryway feel larger while reflecting light to make it brighter.
Touches of softness are added with a basket holding a throw and pillow. To complete the farmhouse charm of this entryway @houseof5 added rain boots on a crate. This adds a touch of whimsy and personality, which is a great way to greet your guests.
Rustic Entryway Table To Separate SpacesSource
I like the creativity used to split the entryway from the living space here. The rustic window hanging above the entryway table acts as a divider between the two spaces. The lamps frame the mirror nicely to finish separating the entryway from the living space.
The small vases in the center on the table hold a few subtle flowers. The crate at the bottom and two matching lamps moved with splashes of greenery make this entryway a welcoming experience.
No Entryway or Small Entryway IdeaSource
If you don’t have a traditional entryway try installing a shelf near your front door. This is a fantastic option for small or non existent entryways. Add a small vase of flowers and a mirror to make the area seem larger.
Adding a basket under to hold shoes, slippers, or other items turns a small entryway into a usable space.
Entryway Gallery WallSource
If you want a more minimalist approach to your entryway table keep it simple on the table top by adding a vase of flowers and a lamp and one smaller trinket in the middle. Then draw the eye up by putting up a gallery wall. It’s a great way to maximize the space and make it look larger.
Entryway Mirror Idea for Small SpacesSource
A smaller entryway table with a large mirror and one large vase filled with flowers is a simple yet stunning way to make your entryway inviting. In this entryway they used the 3-1-3 technique in decorating. The three circles in the mirror, 1 large vase of flowers, and 3 smaller vases on the bottom shelf.
Odds are great for decorating purposes and this entryway is a great example of that. The mirror makes the entryway larger and the simple arrangements of flowers completes the odd number rule.
Consider using really great faux flowers or branches on your entryway table. With the flowers being the centerpiece of the room the last thing you want is wilted flowers or dingy water greeting your guests.
You can usually find great faux flowers at your local craft store. If you decide to shop Amazon be sure to check the reviews before buying.
The entryway is an important part of the home. It’s the first and last impression that people have when they visit. Make your entryway welcoming by bringing the outdoors in, using an entryway table, and making sure the space is well lit.
