How to succeed in designing your new entryway
Entryway, hall, corridor or entrance. We know this room can be called a million things – and sometimes has so many purposes that finding solutions to them can get in the way of your best ideas. If you are in the middle of designing an improved entryway, we are behind you all the way. So, let us lead you through this maze of well-known dilemmas that all have a well-designed solution that we like to call Danish design!
First impressions always last - but they'll linger with Danish design
If windows are the eyes of a house, then the entryway is the handshake. It's where you welcome your guests, friends and relatives, and they get a first impression of you and your home. To many people, this gives the look and design of the entryway priority over other choices.
So let us show you the simple design trick of using the same design series of cabinets in your entryway that your guests will later see in your kitchen and elsewhere in your home.
Furniture for the narrow entryway? Here are 3 ideas
How much furniture does your entryway need?
We suggest you consider the answer: "None" - and choose to transform the hallway with built-in storage furniture tucked into the wall. It could be a sliding door wardrobe, or in this case, the Bordo with ample high storage - and a bench where you can sit down to lace your shoes on the way out.
Entryway storage - big enough to take the weight off your shoulders
So, in an average entryway, a key consideration is plenty of storage room, perfectly equipped for shoes and overcoats, and looks stunning too. We suggest considering high cabinets to optimise the space. All our wardrobe design series come in several dimensions – we even have some in XXL that add extra storage volume.
