An entryway is often located in a dedicated foyer area, hallway, or is right within the living room (e.g. in a small apartment). Considered the gateway to your home, the entryway is as much relevant to you as it is to your guests. One way to create a cozy and inviting entryway is by using the farmhouse style. So, how do you create an inviting farmhouse style entryway? This post contains some curated entry examples to help you generate an inspiring farmhouse entryway.
An entryway, even though small in size, can still make a lasting visual impression on your guests. This is especially true for someone new to your home. The entryway indicates how inviting the rest of your home eventually feels. To successfully decorate a small space requires as much care and thought as will a large room. Consider each individual item carefully including the wall color and texture, console, table, bench, vignette, floor rug, and lighting fixtures that best characterize your home.
Your entryway can tell the story of your house or its residents. It is after all the threshold that leads to many more spaces within your home. There are no better ways to make your entrance more inviting and cozy than going for rustic decor.
If you need design input on how to decorate a farmhouse style home including the living, dining, kitchen, bedroom and so on, you will find links to all the farmhouse-related posts at the end of this article.
How To Create An Inviting Farmhouse Style Entryway
We hope this post will help you gather some inspirations and ideas to decorate or re-decorate your entryway.
Let’s get started!
Farmhouse Style Entryway
Make the entryway welcoming by adding a rug, a table with books, plants, and candles. A decorative mirror not only creates visual interest, but it also ties in the different components in this entry nicely together. To make this space welcoming, the natural elements such as wood and textured rug work seamlessly. Rustic farmhouse style is achieved in the background with the white-painted shiplap or wood paneling and natural wood flooring. The outcome is a fresh and uncluttered entryway that set the stage for a welcoming and cozy home.

Sometimes all you need is a good farmhouse staple white slipcovered settee and a great rustic looking side table to decorate your entryway. By keeping the other decor elements to a minimum, this entryway looks very welcoming and easy on the eyes.

Conclusion: How To Create An Inviting Farmhouse Style Entryway
Simple elements such as a rug, a table or a chair/bench, candles, plants, and a mirror will instantly add a welcoming vibe to your entryway. This will work no matter how tiny your entryway is.
Try to avoid a lot of small items which will add visual and physical clutter to your entry. The right size table or bench will anchor the design. Use a mirror to reflect natural light by placing it opposite an entrance door as well as to reflect artificial light from fixtures at night. A decorative mirror will create visual interests and works if you choose to keep the remaining elements simple (to prevent visual clutter).
Choose a table that will provide for the amount of storage you will most likely need. Go for one with drawers if you need storage to hide small items such as keys, gloves, and the like. A table with a lower shelf will provide additional storage. Textured elements such as baskets, rattan, and layered floor rugs will add rustic details and visual interests to your decor.
Make the space inviting and homey by styling your entry table or console with items such as plants, books, and candles. Remember to personalize your entryway by adding a family antique (it could be a vintage table, chair, or bench), family photos, or other heirloom items.
Last but not least, have fun by mixing and matching rustic or old and new elements to create your unique but inviting farmhouse style entryway.
