Modern Farmhouse Entryway Ideas + Inspiration

An entryway is the first welcome you get when you come home and it's important that it makes a statement. Afterall, this is the first impression both you and your guests will get when entering into the house.  Most people tend to invest design time and budgets into other core areas of a home such as the kitchen and living room. As a result, small spaces such as entryways, are often not prioritized or worse, neglected all together. In this article we are going to talk about how you can give your entryway that wow factor that's sure to bring a smile to your face every time you, the family or even friends step across the threshold, into your sanctuary. In addition, we'll talk about some different ways this space can function and we'll feature some of our favorite entryway products that are currently on trend! 




Keeping in mind that the entryway will set the tone for your entire home's story, it's important that this space is both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Consider what's on display in the image above. Items such as a console table, catchall bowl to throw your keys into, or baskets to toss your shoes into; add style AND FUNCTION to this stunning modern farmhouse entryway. In addition to these functional features, plants, vases and books,  add both an organic and decorative element to this space that is clean and crisp.

Is your entryway still missing something but you can't quite put your finger on it? The space as a whole may be lacking visual interest, storage, or even lighting. As an interior designer I've learned how to combine several of the right elements into this small space in order to create balance and harmony for the entryway as a whole and I'm going to share my secrets with you!!! These are some really great tips if your prepping your home for sale too!


The door will be the first impression for both you and your guests  upon entering your home.  An old entryway door can make your home feel outdated from the start. Since this space sets the tone for the rest of your home, it really should be on point! Consider updating your entryway door or even painting it!  Here are some our favorite interior paint colors for your door!


If something still seems off about your entryway, you may consider lack of storage being the problem. Especially if there are shoes and little knick knacks everywhere! A great console table like the one we've seen above in this blog can offer both function and purpose to your entryway. Take it a step further by finding a console table with drawers or use baskets to hide clutter. See below for some great alternative suggestions!


Perhaps your entryway lacks enough lighting and that's what's throwing you off! Consider adding sidelights to your door or purchasing a door with windows to add in some natural light. If that isn't an option, perhaps a table lamp for your console table could be the solution. In addition, you can add a light fixture! For lower ceilings we recommend adding a flush mount light fixture. For taller ceilings, you can hang a chandelier or pendant that will not only add light, but visual interest as well!
