If your place lacks a decently sized formal greeting spot, you can still carve out a transition area that will provide some simple storage along with an aesthetically pleasing entry point. Here are some small-space entryway ideas we love.

Charming brass hooks

Apart from the gorgeous sage green paint and botanical wallpaper, this entryway pops with animal brass hooks. They add to its whimsical feel while offering storage for jackets, hats, and  bags.

Work with what you’ve got

You can DIY an awesome geometric-print door like this one to make a statement. Then you can make the space more welcoming with leafy green plants housed in beautiful pots.

Wall mount it

In this entryway, a basic IKEA Besta unit offers both closed storage and an open surface for keeping mail and small items like keys.

Pegs and a bench

This entryway looks so put together thanks to pegs for hanging accessories and a beautiful leather bench. The addition of a rug ups the cozy factor bigtime.

A home for the mail

Even if you aren’t working with a lot of space, having a proper place to put your mail is crucial. An acrylic tray table provides enough room for a letter tray or two.
