The entryway to your home gives guests their first impression of your interior space. Whether you pick a light fixture that makes a bold statement or something more subtle and subdued, your choice of lighting sets the tone for the rest of the house. From chandeliers and ceiling fixtures to recessed lighting and table lamps, the variety of light fixtures that work well in an entryway is as boundless as your creativity and imagination.
Make smart use of a nearby closet - If you’re lucky enough to have an entryway closet in your, ahem, entryway, take advantage of it. Even the world’s smallest, most poorly designed entryway closet has room for growth — and plenty of coats. With a smart layout (and some major decluttering), you can easily maximize the space in your entryway closet to fit everything you need. Install spice racks to hold notebooks and mail. Use wall hooks to store bags, purses, and umbrellas. Store shoes in plastic drawers. And use baskets to store accessories like hats, gloves and scarves.
