Designing a Grand Entryway!

Your entryway is one of the most important areas to welcome guests or customers, be it a residential or commercial space! No matter what the size of the space, when the front doors open it’s the first thing your customer in an office or a restaurant, or a guest who visits your home sees. You never get a second chance to make a great first impression! It’s therefore important that your entryway is welcoming to guests, makes them feel comfortable as soon as they walk through the door and, most importantly reflects your personal style.

Create a space in a way that makes sure the entryway art, furniture, paint colour, and seating you choose to generate a positive reaction.
Here are a few tips as to how to create such incredible and attractive entryways –


Photo-friendly area:

Your restaurant is not just about how delicious the food is, it’s also about the interiors of the space and the vibe it generates! Nowadays, people don’t just go to a restaurant to eat but also to showcase their experience to their friends and family through pictures on social media. As a restaurateur, it is important to keep this in mind.

You can create a photo-friendly space by adding quirky and fun décor elements at the entrance like you can see in the image below. The designer Studio Wood created this statement wall and used custom-made bespoke Momo pattern flooring and unique interior concepts at Café Ciclo in Gurugram to create a dramatic look and feel that is totally Instagram-worthy!

Entry Seating:

It’s very important to put up a bench or a chair at the entrance of a restaurant. A small seating area will not only create a cosy feel but also makes a customer comfortable while they wait for their table. The seating made of jute/ cane at the entrance of the British Brewing Company reiterates the classic setting at the restaurant. The artistic décor elements used by designer Tejal Mathur create a whimsical vibe at this friendly neighbourhood gastropub.


Statement flooring:

Beauty lies in the eyes of the beholder! Putting on our styling hats, we’d suggest using a statement pattern on your floor that can enhance and highlight the remaining décor and furniture of the space instantly! The designer Brinda Somayya created this look at the entrance of the Phillips Store to get the desired effect. This Star and Diamond pattern from the HeritageTM collection is a classic design which gives a very soothing and vintage effect to the interiors!

Large front doors:
The first thing someone sees before even entering a house or store is the front door. Add some drama with a large front door that makes people go ‘Wow’ instantly! This antique furniture store has a very vintage inspired door which appropriately reflects the kind of space you’re walking in to.


A decorative and plant -friendly space:

The entry of your home sets the tone for the rest of the space. Artistic wall frames, planters, antique furniture all blend in well to create a stunning entrance! Planters help to add some greenery and freshness to the space like you can see in the image below.

This design scheme of artistic décor elements and vintage furniture in the image below creates a perfect balance of old and new, luxurious and accessible, looking fresh and evergreen!

This apartment designed by Rubel Dhuna Architects has a wide entrance so she used the classic and traditional floral design to give it a statement look. The home imparts a vintage vibe right from the entryway!

Add a touch of wood:

Wooden furniture is nothing but a classic and artistic way to amp up the décor of your foyer! The entrance of this private apartment looks as luxurious as ever with beautifully crafted side tables harbouring artistic décor pieces and wooden shutters on the side incorporating colourful painting designs. A foyer is a great place for a tall mirror so guests can check themselves while entering or exiting the apartment. It also adds a nice decorative touch. This foyer designed by Studio Infinity Project is decor goals of all sorts!

The aim while designing the entrance or front door should be to make it as inviting, welcoming, and attractive as you can! Avoid creating a cluttered area, it should look spacious. We hope these tips will be useful to anyone looking to do up their entryway!
