The unique design challenge in this early 20th century Georgian Colonial was the complete disconnect of the kitchen to the rest of the home. In order to enter the kitchen, you were required to walk through a formal space. The homeowners wanted to connect the kitchen and garage through an informal area, which resulted in building an addition off the rear of the garage. This new space integrated a laundry room, mudroom and informal entry into the re-designed kitchen. Additionally, 25” was taken out of the oversized formal dining room and added to the kitchen. This gave the extra room necessary to make significant changes to the layout and traffic pattern in the kitchen. Beth Singer Photography

Your entryway is the first and last room both you and your guests see, so creating a memorable and inspirational space is key. Whether you have a grand foyer or a no-frills mudroom, entryway designs should reflect your home’s overall style and personality. As you look through our photo collection, consider functionality as well as aesthetics to achieve a stylish, organized entry space that’s sure to wow visitors.

How do I decorate my entryway?

Front entries almost always become a drop zone for stuff, which can make decorating seem like a lost cause. However, as you contemplate various entryway decorating ideas, you’ll notice that the decor often doubles as an organizational system. Instead of letting the clutter win, embrace it by adding entryway storage for keys, purses, coats and shoes. Giving each item a designated space will help keep you sane when coming and going, as well as help everyone focus on the entryway decor, not the accumulation of stuff. If you have multiple people in your home, give everyone their own drop spot and include a little extra space for guests.

The little details are where you can really have fun with your entryway design — hooks, bowls and bins don’t have to be boring! The most versatile and unique entryway decorating ideas consist of bringing together different materials, colors and textures, such as wood tones and metallics, to turn a bland area into a stylish space. If you have open wall space, hang artwork or photographs that make you happy or have conversation-starting potential — the most successful entryway ideas incorporate personalized touches as well as functional pieces. Additionally, fresh flowers and knickknacks on a table or shelf always make for an interesting and elegant entryway design.

How do I make my front entrance stand out?

If you’re in the market for heavy-duty entryway remodeling and revamping, you have a lot of options open to you — you’d be surprised by the huge range of entry remodeling ideas on Houzz alone! As you browse entryway photos and contemplate entryway design ideas, you’ll notice that a successful entry design all starts with the front door. So to start your entryway remodel off right, pick out a front door that is style appropriate yet interesting and unique. Think about what works best with your home — an all-glass door is pretty contemporary, while an ornate wood door is elegant and traditional. An entryway remodel is all about livening and enhancing your space, so don’t be afraid to take creative chances and experiment with door sizes and shapes. An arched door works well for Mediterranean-style homes, and a double door is a great way to make a dramatic statement. Your entryway floor can also make the space stand out; go with a mosaic tile or functional concrete.

If your front entrance is set back from the facade of your home, try using a lighter or brighter color palette, and adding potted plants and a welcome mat to make it stand out. Don’t forget about proper lighting — wall sconces or hanging lights will not only help guide visitors in the dark, but will showcase your door and decor. To give your current front door a quick and cost-effective update, try painting it a bright color or adding new hardware for a fresh new look.

How do I turn my entry room into a mudroom?

For larger families, a mudroom is the ideal storage space for shoes, lunch bags, sports equipment and pet essentials. This area also does not have to be a strictly utilitarian space — you can take your creative entryway ideas and apply them to your mudroom! Although this space is often near the back door or garage, you don't need an entire room to reap the benefits — a narrow hall or partial wall will do just fine. In the end, a mudroom is all about the storage. Hall trees, counters, tables and benches can collect and organize day-to-day items, while built-in lockers or cubbies will give individual family members their own space. You can further organize your built-ins by adding smaller storage solutions, such as baskets, bins and trays.
