Do you have a designated entry in your home? Many houses we looked at when we were house hunting didn’t have separate entry. So even though ours is quite narrow and actually more of a hallway than a room, it is still fun to have at least a little space to work with. Now that I have a Dutch door I’m even more in love with our entry.

The challenge with small entries (and all small spaces) is how to make them functional and charming. Today’s post offers ideas that might inspire you with ways to add both character and function to a small entry.

Not to worry if you don’t have a designated entry at all, you’ll find inspiration for entries that open right into a living space, too. Furniture placement can sometimes help create the illusion of a separate entry and organizational accessories nearby can increase the functionality of your home.

Happy Monday!
