WHAT FURNITURE FOR AN ENTRANCE?21 December 2020
Regardless of the size of your entryway, we'll help you figure out how to dress it. The choice of furniture should depend on your lifestyle :
- Your shoes are in the hall, you need a bench to put them on quietly
- You like to empty your pockets and put your keys and wallet in a storage compartment, consider creating a console
- Your entrance is narrow but you want to bring it some life, a shelf will be perfect for some decorations
- There is a recess, slide a piece of furniture or a console into it to optimize space
The entrance is a separate room but ultimately a passing place. However, it is important to optimize it and dress it to give it a soul. Circulation in this room must be fluid, the storage will be organized and practical.
Your entrance is similar to a corridor, that is to say all in length, not very wide. To dress this cramped space and not the easiest to decorate here are our tips.
LONG AND LARGE CONSOLE
Creating a console much longer than it is wide, this will give depth and delimit the entrance space from the rest of the hallway. To give it more character, add mirrors that will make the room brighter, a bouquet of dried flowers or a plant to bring life.
Play and have fun with the constraints of your room! Is a radiator right in the middle? Thanks to our custom-made feet, choose the feet of the height of your choice to create a made-to-measure console. Remember to leave about ten centimeters between your tray and the radiator so as not to subject the tray to too much heat. Your great white wall will no longer exist and you will have created a new space that will welcome you as soon as you enter your home.
DECORATE YOUR LONGILINE ROOM
If your room is not very bright, the mirrors will deploy every ray of sunlight, the ideal is to stay on light and pale shades so as not to darken this space. You can choose not to paint than the area bounded by the entrance to accentuate its difference from the rest of the hallway or room. A floor lamp is also welcome, it will add a point of light.
You can also take advantage of this long hallway to create storage with a vintage cabinet or an IKEA cabinet. Use boxes and baskets to hide what cannot be seen. This will accentuate the character of this space.
If you fancy something lighter, an old skate board and 2 skate feet and here you are with a nice little piece of furniture and a nice second life. It will act as a small bench to put down your bag.
Your entrance is square, so here you are with a room in its own right. So you have the possibility of giving it a soul and a utility in its own right.

A CONSOLE, OF COURSE
