Storage is one of the most important elements for an entry hall to make it as functional as possible. These spaces are also a great place to express yourself with punches of colour or bold statement wallpapers. Here are some of my favourite entryways:
This photo from the blog Small Place Style shows various types of storage — everything from the small and easy like loose keys to the last minute items like a purse or umbrella — all find a home in an uncluttered and organized entry.
This entryway boasts a large amount of storage behind very tall and sleek doors. This allows such a narrow space to remain tidy and uncluttered.
This gorgeous entry features another important element. A mirror helps to open up a narrow or small space, plus offers a last-minute hair and makeup check. There are so many beautiful features in this entry, from the stained glass to the bench and mouldings, but this mirror really makes the space.
This entryway has the seat, storage and a mirror. It's also a segue into the next theme of using loud paint or wallpaper in these small spaces.
This entrance pops with cheerful wallpaper and colours.
Small entryways are a perfect spot to let your creative side shine — you don't spend much time in them so they're less daunting.
