Front Hall Decorating Ideas
I love to imagine My Dream Home and to pin beautiful pictures to my Pinterest boards.
Today, I’m showing you eight fun, creative ideas for decorating an entryway, foyer, or front hall
Sadly, I don’t have an entry hall in my Blue Cottage — you step right into the living room/dining room with fireplace in my house – but that doesn’t mean I don’t dream of creating a beautiful entry in my future home.

This big hall tree is everything! I love all that storage space! You could buy a prefab, simple hall tree and add molding to it, and it will look like an expensive built in.
If you don’t have a gifted carpenter handy who can build you a cute hall tree, here is an inexpensive one from Amazon. I don’t have space for this, but I wish I did!
If you don’t want to look at your jackets hanging on the wall all year, then this is a great option: Add a bench with plenty of storage or a sideboard, and add inexpensive wall art.
What do you think of this idea? Why not use just frames for a neutral look? I love it.
This is just my style because you can can replicate it on any budget:
Simple: hang an inexpensive upper cabinet, find a little desk and paint it, buy a few colorful plates or pictures at a thrift store, and display a collection of little items. How sweet!
This wall desk is adorable and will make any small corner a functional spot because it takes up hardly any space and folds up when not in use.
Here are the plate hangers you can add to any pretty plate so you can hang it onto a wall. I’ve bought these but have so many plates, I can’t decide which ones to hang up. ha!
I’ve seen curtains like this used to divide rooms, which is such a clever idea.
In this example, the curtain is just a couple of feet away from the wall to hide coats, jackets, and shoes. That’s just genius! You could even hide a bike behind the curtain.
This one is so pretty as well:
Why not spruce up an entryway with a wall full of pictures in different sizes that have one thing in common? These are all black and white frames, which let’s you combine black and white and colored photos.
You can find inexpensive sets of frames online:
If you have a bit of space behind the door, the utilize it for storage! A little shelf or a simple coat rack, a mirror, and a wire basket make this a functional space.
I love this shiplap wall shelf. It’s such an easy way to add that shiplap look to your home for the farmhouse and cottage style that is so popular now. I like spots that I get to restyle often throughout the year, and this arrangement lets you play around with all kinds of decor items.
You can also recreate this look by adding shiplap to your front hall.
You can get thin stick-on shiplap or shiplap wallpaper like this one!
Do you have the space? Then why not add a bench to your front hall. I throw my things on our two green Ikea chairs when I get home, but I’m dreaming about a front hall like this one:
This bench would look lovely in any entryway:
This bench is also available in white:
This bench is available in white and brown/green.
