An underrated area, the entryway is the first space you enter when you get home. How you design and decorate it is crucial as it sets the overall mood of the house. Get inspired from our list of entryway ideas (that are more than just a shoe rack)!


1. Infuse Japanese Style With A Genkan Entryway

Common in traditional Japanese homes, a genkan is where you remove your shoes before entering the house. They are usually recessed into the floor to contain dirt tracked from the outside. This separates the ‘clean’ and ‘dirty’ zone, which prevents you from soiling the rest of the house with your shoes. 

If you want to follow the Asian household tradition of keeping shoes outside, this is definitely a unique entryway design to consider.

2. Bring In Patterned Flooring

Another unique way to zone an open entryway is to incorporate a distinctive patterned flooring. As with any space, flooring with patterns or motifs are a fun way to jazz up the entryway. 

Here are some flooring types you can consider based on what you’re going for: 

  • Hexagonal tiles: For a creative twist, seamlessly transition your tiles to the next flooring with an organic, staggered edge.
  • Colourful patterned flooring: Get checkered flooring or brightly coloured tiles for an eccentric entrance.
  • Herringbone flooring: A classic and elegant option, use herringbone flooring in neutral colours like wood, white or grey. 

3. Have A Feature Wall

‘Wow’ your guests with a dramatic feature wall as they enter your home. Besides repainting or adding wallpaper, you can also add texture to your current walls by adding pannellings. An easy way to switch it up without making too much change. 

4. Use A Partition

While an open entryway gives your home an airy and spacious feel, people passing by can peek into your home and see your every move. A partition can solve this, giving your home a slight element of privacy. It also keeps messy shoes out of sight from the living room. 

A common choice of partition is a solid plastered wall, which can make the entryway look dark and gloomy. However, there are ways to let some light in while still keeping the living area hidden. Here are some partition ideas to do this: 

  • Use textured glass like fluted, frosted or reed glass
  • Opt for wooden or metal slats, works vertically or horizontally
  • Add a shoe rack, bench or shelf at the bottom half for functionality

Privacy and a touch of old-school charm? Bring in the breeze blocks. This is another great option for a partition if you dig the retro vibe.

5. Install Built-In Storage

If you don’t like a cluttered entryway or want to hide your ugly bomb shelter door, install built-in storage. These built-in cabinets make the most out of vertical space as they stretch from floor to ceiling, so no space is wasted. Opt for textured and seamless cabinets to double as a feature wall!

6. Create A Drop-Off Zone

Delegate a space as a landing space for keys, purses, jackets and mail. They make it convenient to grab essentials on the way out or store back when you get home.
