When decorating your home, you always want to create a positive impression of each room. Since the first area that most people see in your home is the entryway, you should design that space to feel welcoming and comfortable. To achieve that feeling, try rustic decor.
Comfort — In your entryway, place a bench made of barnwood with a nicely upholstered seat. This furniture piece will provide any guests or family members with a comfortable place to sit when waiting for someone. You could also select a barnwood bench with drawers underneath. A storage bench is a perfect place to keep gloves or scarves or other small items that you’re always misplacing but need before you leave the house.
Convenience — Hang a barnwood coat rack on a nearby wall. Providing hooks that come mounted on a gorgeous piece of wood in your entryway will give guests a handy place to hang their coat while they’re in your home. Family members can also hang often-used coats here, so they’re easy to grab on the way out.
Charm — Add beauty to your entryway with a couple of special decorator pieces. You can hang a mirror surrounded by a barnwood frame over your bench, which is good for a last look at your appearance before you leave. Another option is to hang a stunning rustic print or painting on the wall. You can also set a barnwood side table next to the bench. An art piece placed on top — such as a sculpture of a horse, dog, deer, or even a bear — will complete the rustic look.
With just a few pieces of furniture, you can design a lovely entryway that will always leave a great first impression. Try rustic decor in every room of your home to achieve a cozy feeling and a unique style that everyone will enjoy.
