When painting the interior of our homes, it’s all too easy to forget the entryway; after all, we don’t often spend much time in this small or narrow room. An entryway colour scheme should set the tone for the rest of your home. Adding a fresh coat of paint in a new exciting colour is an easy way to make your entrance way more inviting. These stylish, design forward entrance way ideas will bring the wow-factor to this often overlooked space.
Choose a Colour that Works Well with Neighbouring Rooms
When there are clear views from a hallway into adjacent rooms, think carefully about your choice of colours. We want to ensure that the eye is drawn naturally from one space to the next. This is a great opportunity to select a colour that will create a contrast between rooms, and an excellent way to make a memorable introduction to the home.
Accent walls are one of the most popular leading trends in interior design. It’s a classic decorating technique which draws the eye to a specific area. Striking, elegant, and confident, a black and white theme for an entrance way is perfect for a modern home. Find your favourite black and white pattern or design, and create a beautiful and unique feature wall in your home’s entrance.
Entryways can often be an overlooked area of the home, seen mainly as a space to pass through, and yet gives the very first impression. A simple way to ensure this area doesn’t feel dull, add a pop of your favourite colour. Adding personality to a room is the number one way to make it feel like home. Try this, and your entrance way is guaranteed to feel more inviting than before.
Sometimes entrance ways and mud rooms can feel a bit dark and dull. To brighten up these areas, incorporate some pops of white or yellow. White walls will certainly bring a brightness to the room. Yellow is a very fun and exciting way to introduce light to a room, as it produces a sense of happiness.
