Small Entryway Ideas

Create an organized and beautiful small entryway with our helpful design ideas.

Entryway Seating

Design Ideas

  • A small bench, ottoman or stool in your entryway is the perfect place to slip your shoes on and off.
  • Our benches with shelves or cubbies provide easy shoe storage for everyone's favorite kicks.
  • Storage ottomans provide comfortable seating and have plenty of interior storage for entryway extras like hats, gloves or leashes.

Tiny Tip:
Busy entryway? Our leathers and contract-grade fabrics can handle the traffic.

Storage Cabinets and Console Tables

Design Ideas

  • Give your keys and mail a place to land with an entryway console cabinet or table.
  • Small cabinets provide the function of a table with plenty of interior storage.
  • Even a small, narrow console table can be enough to anchor your space and provide a place to set things down.

Tiny Tip:
Add a photo or small piece of art to set the tone of a welcoming home.


Design Ideas

  • An entryway rug is a necessity. It's a landing zone for shoes and a visual cue of where the entryway starts and stops.
  • We love 2'x3' rugs and runner rugs for small entryways.
  • Flatweave indoor-outdoor rugs provide the durability and cleanability necessary for high-traffic entryways.
  • Our hand-knotted wool rugs are exceptionally durable and provide a luxurious layer of beauty for your home's front door.

Tiny Tip:
Pick the perfect entryway rug size with our custom rug sizes.

Entryway Organization and Mirrors

Design Ideas

  • Hooks are a must in small entryways. Add wall hooks or coat racks to hang coats, purses, backpacks and more.
  • Get shoes off the floor with a wall-mounted shoe rack.
  • Corral entryway odds and ends with baskets for your shelves, closet or cubbies.
  • It's always nice to check your look before you go with an entryway mirror.

Tiny Tip:
Keep track of your keys with our modern trays.
