Creating an Entryway When Your Apartment Does Not Have One

While many apartments in Huntsville, AL have entryways, the rest of the rooms in these apartments are often smaller to make room for it. Instead of giving up precious space that someone only walks through when they enter or exit your apartment, you can have the best of both worlds by creating an entryway. While there are many different choices available, these ideas will get your creative juices flowing.  

Use a Mirror

A mirror is a great way to create the illusion of having an entryway. It naturally reflects light making the front entrance to your apartment in Huntsville, AL seem brighter. The right mirror also makes the area appear larger than it is in reality. Finally, using a mirror helps to set the style of your home because they are available in so many different styles.  

Create Division

If you live in an apartment with an open floorplan, then it is easy to set aside part of your apartment by the front door to serve as an entryway. You can choose to section off the area with a cute cabinet or a shelving unit as this gives you more space to put things that you need as you enter and exit your home without making it seem cluttered. You can even place a sofa or loveseat parallel to the front door helping to create the illusion of having an entryway.  

Employ Rugs

Simply laying down a rug can be a great way to make an entryway to your home. Remember that people will step on it often, so choose one that is easy to clean. Polypropylene rugs are often the most durable and are easy to clean. Seagrass rugs are another durable choice that are easy to clean with the vacuum. Consider using a pad under your rug to make it last longer.  

Bring the Outside in With Plants

Plants make it easy to transition from outside to inside. You may want to consider using plants in big pots, such as bamboo plants, on the floor. If space is tight, then consider hanging baskets. Many choose ivy because it is easy to grow. Look for options that do well in low light conditions, and do not forget to consider if you will meet their watering and nutrient needs.  

Design a Gallery Wall

There are many ways to design a gallery wall for your home. The hardest part is deciding which type of gallery wall you love the best. You can hang a series of identical picture frames filled with art or photos that you love. If you are cramped for space, then hang three or five pictures in a vertical row.
