While the entryway can easily be overlooked, taking the time to create a space you love will transform your home.
One of the most neglected spaces in a home is the entryway.
Even though it's the first space to welcome you home after a long day and the first impression your guests get upon entering, entryways often become all necessity and no fun. Springtime is within reach, which means this is a great time to incorporate fresh new accents into your home decor. Adding more functional personality to entryway spaces is the perfect place to start.
Whether you live in a sprawling home or a small apartment, there are so many ways to make the entry to your space more inviting. The first order of business is a welcome mat that feels truly... well... welcoming! We love Porte and Hall's durable and stylish options. Next, you'll want storage and surfaces for keeping your shoes, bags and keys handy. Finally, it's all about the personal touches: a scented candle, decorative vases and plants are all details that can add plenty of charm.
Below, we've gathered our favorite furniture and decor to take your entryway to the next level — all under $200. From multitasking lamps to elegant storage solutions, check out the best pieces to transform your entryway.
