Designing the Interiors of the Entryway


The home, office and commercial spaces entryways need to be given a lot of thought when doing the interior designing.  Homes will require certain amount of room to tuck away a golf kit, or baseball bats, hats and in Indian homes you may need concealed shoe racks, as some homes are opposed to people wearing footwear inside. The office entryway will be less personal and requires storage for its employees mostly. Any entryway needs to be planned and well thought out, because all our activities start there. So a few pointers to the facilities you might need at the entryway.

Planning the Entryway

Footwear racks to put away footwear, and seating to put on and take off footwear in comfort

A table to put in multiple signatures and dispatch, like home banking facilities for the elders

A place to keep files or parcels ready for dispatch

A table with drawers to sort the mail and a dustbin for quick discards.

Store cabinets for game kits and umbrellas

The Considerations of Designs for the Entryway

Of course the Entryway will carry the central theme of the space. But, there are further considerations to be looked into the Entryway. The designs must cater to the needs of the place.

Office spaces may require a larger area, to have in place an enquiry desk and a little seating for the people awaiting an interview and consultations. Office entryways too can be planned neatly to have storage space to put away helmets and other travel gears of its employees, before they buzz themselves into their work stations, with their ID cards. Commercial establishments require an entryway, with a strong signature theme especially the restaurants and spas to set the ambiance. First impressions begin here.

The ottomans tucked beneath the console at the entryway too are defined neatly and detailed with buttons and nail-head trim.


Eclectic can be used for homes and theme restaurants, and restro-bars. The eclectic theme will carry from the central tone. The theme can be executed using materials of your choice the mix and match of modern and period décor. Here the wall and the high sofa blend together with bold stripes. The flooring is earthy stone paired eclectically with the bold stripes. The mirror is the white sun a transfer of natural shades between the wall and the mirror. The mirror is made from metal and spray painted to white, the ceramic pot is painted a shade of grey and steel the wrought Iron pedestal supporting the pot is also painted white, here there is a play with painted metal including the cross-bar square table.
