Make A Statement With Stunning Entryway Décor

July 12, 2019 | By Janet Alyinovich - Darvin Merchandise Manager

The moment someone steps into your home they make an assessment based on what they see. Whether it is fair or not, that ‘first impression’ comes fairly quick, within seconds, and it sets the tone for the rest of your home.

The real secret to an amazing entryway décor is that you can easily control all of those first impressions. In addition, your entryway can become the welcoming center that makes your home inviting, while also giving your visitors a little peek into your personal style. Here are some items I really think do a great job of creating a memorable entryway.

Long and thin, this console is perfect for placing behind a sofa, in an entryway, or in a hallway. The piece features two drawers on the sides and an open shelf for storage and display. A medium wood finish highlights the Acacia wood's natural beauty, while metal ferrules add an industrial element.

The Oxford Distressed Brown provides the rich, aged-wood patina that draws the eye to the Cabinet. There are really two doors, but has the look and hardware of 18 four-squared compartments! You will get a massive amount of storage on the shelved interior. Use alone, or with the matching pieces for a coordinated style.

This Media Credenza has an understated beauty. Its linear form rises above a base of thin dark metal legs and supports, perfectly paired with the long, slender hardware that centers each of the four doors. The Bangle Distressed Brown finish takes it over the top! With the adjustable shelving inside for optimum storage, and a cord management system for your media components, it’s a perfect choice for an entryway.

A raised diamond-shaped molding adds a graceful element to the four picture framed door fronts on this 4-door Credenza. Beautifully finished in St. Claire Cream, with a light washed body topped by a dark wood-grained top, it’s an eye-catching combination. With shelving inside, you get both classic beauty with great convenience.

Gorgeous Diamond fretwork overlays the mirrored door fronts, forming circles that give a well-rounded appeal to this three-door Credenza. The soothing Catskill Grey enhances any décor. It offers a lot of storage, as well as a built in cord system to keep all those wires under control.

Tempered glass doors are fronted by a fretwork of circles and swirls in an overlapping pattern that forms diamonds and other wonderful shapes, all finished in a watery Mabry Mill Burnished Blue. The shelved interior is ideal for storing those white bisque figurines, or some colorful quilts, as you will be able to catch a glimpse of them whenever you walk by.

Keys to Entryway Success
The way to ensure you will end up with an entryway that sets the appropriate tone and impress everyone who enters your front door, is to embrace a few key thoughts that impact the design:

    • Be aware of your entryway’s square footage
    • Less is often more: Avoid crowding your entry
    • Be open to new styles/ideas
    • Don’t forget function along with form
