A custom home captures the taste and personality of those residing there. It reflects the owner’s mood and lifestyle. When first approaching a custom home, one typically comes through the entryway. The entrance hall is a regular part of the modern home where the family and guests can make themselves home. Check out these ideas to set the tone of your custom home.
Go Bold with Your Style
A grand entrance hall sets the tone for the whole house. It’s meant to be like the first pages of a book, letting you know what to expect. So, don’t hesitate to go bold in style in the entrance hall with your preferred colors and patterns. It’s a great place to use dramatic colors and wallpaper.
The entrance hall is also perfect for showcasing your beloved art collection if you’re an art lover. Many homes utilize this area as a home art gallery, setting the tone and color scheme. Developing a gallery at the entrance can wow your guests and immediately add interest to your custom home.
A Mudroom for the Kids
If you have a family of growing children, a mudroom may be a great choice. You can either have the entrance hall be a mudroom or have one attached to it. This arrangement would include seating, shelving, and wall hooks for shoes, coats, and bags. Also, the entrance hall can consist of a washing station if you have a pet.
For practical measures, it’s not a bad idea to include a side table and chair in the hallway if possible. It gives an area for guests to sit right away and a place for your keys. Even better, make the area stunning with a statement piece. It can be a large chandelier or a center table with a sculpture or a bouquet.
