Modern Entryway Design Ideas for Home Interior - Beautiful Homes

Simple, clean lines and chic design translate into a modern, clutter-free entryway. Here are our tips to fashion your own modern entryway

Clean lines, less clutter and shiny metal – what’s not to love about modern interiors? And often they work well in what could be the most cluttered zone of your home – the entryway. Imagine a pile of shoes, umbrellas, jackets. If that's got you shifting in your seats, then we have just the solution for you. Modern is the way to go for those detail obsessed, OCD folks out there. Here's a checklist of the essentials for a modern entryway:


1. Clean Lines

When it comes to selecting furniture for your hallway design, opt for symmetrical pieces with clean lines. Embrace simple geometrical shapes as they work best in this context. Save the distressed finish for another occasion and focus on creating a sleek and balanced look for your hallway.


2. Less Clutter

One important thing about modern entryways is that it needs to have a clean look. Avoid cluttering it up with extra bags, coats and shoes. Look at smart, concealed storage options for a clutter free entryway.


3. Monochromes

Remember what we said about clutter? That applies for colour too. Rein in the colours and opt for monochromes or there’s always the classic combo of black and white to fall back on.


4. Accents

Bring in points of visual interest thorough artefacts, mirrors, photo frames, or console knobs. In order to maintain cohesion with the furniture, pick accents with a metal finish.


5. Plants

To soften up the look a bit and to add an informal touch, potted plants are the way to go. It’s also a way in which you can introduce colour and some homely charm.


6. Lighting

When it comes to home interior design and lighting up the area, opt for soft alcove lighting or place sleek table lamps on the console. Use the latter to highlight some of the pieces you’ve placed on the console.

We love the industrial look of the metal cabinet in this white monochrome entryway. The key to making monochrome exciting is to add texture. Think different materials such as metals, glass and ceramic for an interesting visual display.
Storage is important in the entryway. This is where you will be dropping off your coats, bags and shoes. Utilise the walls with trendy metal shelves, sleek coat hangers and storage baskets.
You don’t always have to do an elaborate routine to make your entryway stand out. All it takes to distinguish the space is clever demarcation. In Anjali Mangalgiri’s home, a soft rug and rocking chair are the only furniture elements in her entryway. What makes them eye-catching is the black wall that stands in stark contrast to the rest of the house.
