The entryway is the first impression guests have of your home, so why not make it stylish and welcoming?

Updating your entryway doesn’t have to be a difficult or time-consuming task.

With just a couple of days’ worth of time and a few simple updates, you can transform your entryway into a functional and inviting space.


A beautiful home is the embodiment of comfort,

harmony, and personal style 

Here are 10 easy ways to update your entryway in a weekend.

(BONUS:  There is also a free checklist – you can download it HERE)

Enhance the Lighting:

Good lighting sets the tone for your entryway.

Start by replacing outdated or dull light fixtures with stylish and energy-efficient options.

Install a statement pendant light or a chandelier to create a focal point and add a touch of elegance.

Consider adding a wall sconce or table lamp for softer and more intimate lighting.


Create a Welcoming Vignette:

Add a modern vignette to your entryway by incorporating a console table.

Adorn it with a vase of fresh flowers, a sculptural piece, and a decorative bowl for small items.

This creates a welcoming space that is both functional and visually appealing.


Upgrade the Flooring:

Consider updating your entryway flooring to make a bold statement.

If your budget allows, install new tiles, hardwood, or laminate flooring to create a fresh and modern look (yes, this may take longer than one weekend to complete 🙂 ).

Alternatively, place a stylish runner or area rug to add warmth and texture.

In either case, choose durable and easy-to-clean materials suitable for high-traffic areas.


Add a Statement Mirror:

A mirror is functional and creates an illusion of more space as it will reflect light, making the area feel brighter and larger.

Choose a statement mirror with an interesting frame or a unique shape to add visual interest to the space. IKEA has some great budget-friendly mirrors.


Introduce Functional Storage:

Keep your entryway organized by incorporating functional storage solutions.

Install wall-mounted hooks or a coat rack for hanging coats, hats, and bags.

Place a shoe rack or a pretty storage bench for stashing shoes and other accessories.

Utilize baskets or bins to contain smaller items like scarves, gloves, or pet leashes.

Paint the Door:

Give your entryway a fresh look by painting the front door.

Choose a color that complements the exterior of your home and adds a pop of personality.

A bold and vibrant color can make a strong statement, while a neutral or pastel shade can create a more serene and welcoming ambiance.

Create an Art Display:

Use the entryway as an opportunity to showcase artwork or photographs that reflect your personal style.

Hang a gallery wall or a large piece of art to make a statement and add visual interest.

This adds a personal touch and makes your entryway feel like a curated and inviting space.


Incorporate a Functional Entryway Bench:

If space allows, add a functional entryway bench. It not only provides a place for people to sit and put on or take off shoes but also offers hidden storage space underneath.

Choose a bench with a cushion or upholstered seat for added comfort and style.


Install a Key Organizer:

Keep your keys organized and easily accessible by installing a key organizer in your entryway.

Choose a stylish key holder or a decorative wall-mounted key rack.

This simple addition will help prevent the frantic search for misplaced keys and keep your entryway clutter-free.


Add Greenery:

Introduce a touch of nature to your entryway by placing potted plants or fresh flowers.

Choose plants that thrive in indoor environments and require minimal maintenance.

Greenery adds life, color, and a sense of tranquility to your entryway.
