If you’re wondering how to create the perfect foyer, you don’t need much. Depending on your space, start with a table or cabinet. Bowls or baskets can catch smaller things like keys or change. Be sure to add something on the wall to make the area look bigger. A mirror over the table opens up the space to look bigger and allows you to have a quick touch up before you go. Wall art is a good alternative. Everything else is up to you. Hooks, baskets and decor add personality to the spot.

Size doesn’t matter! You can create a functional entry in the smallest of spots. All that practicality can be beautiful — check out these entry decorating ideas for proof.
