When it comes to choosing the perfect lighting for an entryway, start by considering the scale of the entryway along with any furniture, artwork or mirrors that you might want to highlight. Select fixtures that complement the architecture and design of your home while casting the right glow. You won’t find a strict set of rules that tell you exactly what type of fixture to use in every situation, but Pottery Barn has some entryway lighting ideas to get you thinking about your options.
Use a storage bench to hold bags and shoes - If you have room for a bench in your entryway (you know, to sit on while tying your shoes, resting after a long day, or pondering hygge), make it a storage bench. You can stash shoes, baskets full of cozy gloves and hats, blankets, or even your collection of dog toys inside of the storage bench.
You’ll want to start by removing all of your winter and holiday décor. Décor related to any holiday or timely event should be taken down at the most two weeks after the holiday has ended. Keep this in mind as you change up your décor throughout the year. When decorating your entryway for spring, it’s a good time to give the area a refresh as well.
When it comes to shoes and boots, you may be stumped. They tend to take up the most room and if they have no place to go, they will certainly cause clutter that you don’t have room for. I love the idea of a small, off the ground shoe rack. You can do this yourself! See the tutorial from Fresh Crush on how you can make your own copper shoe rack.
