Create a welcoming entrance hall
Pecanwood Manor, a luxury guest house in Upington, recently shared images of their entrance hall with us which prove that the right décor can create a great impression.
Here are a few tips you could use in your home:
1. Make mirrors a feature
A mirror in an entrance way not only allows you to do a quick hair and make-up check before you run out the door, it also helps make an entrance hall look larger and lighter. The reflective nature of mirrors adds a sense of depth while enhancing natural light and bouncing it around the space.
When finished in a striking frame, like the ornate vintage gold frames of the Pecanwood Manor, mirrors can also help set the design tone and communicate the home décor style from the moment a guest walks through the door.
If you can’t find a mirror large enough for your entrance hall, or you find one that you love but it’s just too small, try grouping more two or three mirrors for a unique look.
2. Use the space for storage
There is no reason why you can’t maximise the use of an entrance hall by adding storage furniture.
Instead of a half-moon or console table, consider adding a chest of drawers or a dresser. It will provide you with a place to hide keys, dog’s leads, walking shoes, and store mail and stationery.
The Pecanwood Manor’s entrance hall proves that a dresser is just as much at home in a hallway as it is in a bedroom.
3. The details
Finally, add a few key accessories to soften the space and add personality.
You can never go wrong with fresh flowers and candles, while a potted plant and a family picture frame or two helps add personality to an entrance hall.
