Entryways, whether tiny or grand, give a first glimpse into the style of a home. Set the tone with paint or wallpaper, some artwork if space allows, and a distinctive light fixture overhead.

Set the Stage

Entryway commodes or console tables provide a surface to set down a purse, package or the mail, plus hide away keys, gloves and essentials. Add a chair or bench and a mirror for ease of guests coming and going.

Divide and Conquer

Half-height bookcases can do double or triple duty by providing shelving, a display surface, and even act as a room divider in homes without a foyer that enter right on to the living area.
