The entryway is the first area of the home your guests see, yet many homeowners put little effort into adorning such spaces. To help you up the wow factor when someone first enters your home, we’ve put together some great modern entryway ideas for making your entryway pop.
One of the best ways to dress up your entrance is with an entryway vignette. The essentials include a sleek accent table, artwork or a mirror hung above it, and carefully chosen pieces of varying heights and textures to grace the table, such as plants, lamps or books. To finish the look, you can place other elements under or beside the table, such as woven baskets for storing odds and ends.
Modern vignettes should be well-curated to effectively introduce the design scheme present in the rest of your home, although seasonal elements can also be brought in to keep the display fresh. Lately, we’ve been seeing a resurgence of mid-century modern accent tables paired with art-deco inspired mirrors in entryway vignettes.
Floating Entryway Console
A wall-mounted console or cabinet is a great solution for modern homeowners who prioritize open space in their home and have a less-is-more design preference.
A floating piece allows you to incorporate a modern vignette without robbing you of floor space. To keep your entryway design minimal, limit your display to two or three pieces.
The display on the left uses a simple birdcage as the single display piece adorning a floating console outfitted with functional drawers.
Modern Coat Racks
Coat racks are known more for their practicality than their aesthetics, but today’s coat racks pack more of a design punch than ever before.
Rather than settling for a lackluster coat rack that adds nothing to your home’s design scheme, consider modern coat racks featuring bold colors or distinctive designs.
Modern Entryway Bench
For entryways, we recommend smooth wood benches with stainless steel accents or an artisan-made, rough-hewn wood slab set on stainless steel legs.
As an alternative, you might consider a clear acrylic entryway bench for a more minimalist approach that maximizes an open-space feel.
