If you're looking for ideas, look no further than these stylish and functional front entryways, which range from simple and understated to luxe and elaborate that will suit any type of property you live in.

1. A grand and glamorous entrance

This grandiose entryway is modern with a touch of glitz. Upon entry, guests are immediately taken aback by the stunning chandelier that takes centre stage. Decorative touches like a modern console table with a large bouquet of flowers and framed art also make this foyer welcoming.

To further elevate the space, the designer added wall panelling, a pair of wall sconce lighting, a marble floor tile and two matching armchairs for sitting or slipping on shoes before heading out.

2. An entryway with a tropical-punch

This entryway looks like a dreamy vacation escape! First of all, let’s talk about storage. The floor-to-ceiling light wooden cabinet that runs the length of the hallway allows the homeowner to store shoes, sports equipment and more. It also has a built-in bench that can be used to slip-on shoes, or even as a comfortable spot to read a good book.

To add to the leisure atmosphere in this space, the bench is beautifully wallpapered with an eye-catching tropical-themed wallpaper.

This gorgeous entryway by MIL Design Studi looks exceptionally warm and welcoming! A large abstract art piece greets visitors at the front door of this house, and instead of hanging, it is leaned on a custom-built bench, where guests can sit and remove their shoes before entering.

Meanwhile, the built-in cabinet provides storage, the floor-to-ceiling bronze mirror creates the illusion of a larger space, and a decorative Buddha head adds some serious zen vibes to the entryway.

This modern entryway by The Grid Studio is small but stunning! To anchor the space, the designer added a narrow mint green console table with drawer storage, which is ideal for storing small items like keys and mail. As decorative touches, a ceramic vase, a small table lamp, and framed artwork are placed on the console table.

In this Seri Kembangan condominium, Rezone Interior Design Studio has successfully transformed what was once a cookie-cutter entryway into a defined zone that serves a specific purpose - a transitional space before heading out or entering home.

To accomplish this, the designer lowered the entryway floor and installed tile flooring, painted the room blue, and dressed up the feature walls with a black and white stripe wallpaper that extends all the way to the ceiling.

6. Bold yet beautiful entryway

If you like dark moody colours, take notes from this contemporary condominium designed by MKR Studio. To add a dramatic yet sophisticated touch to this spacious entryway, the designer drenched it in black walls and installed matte black built-in cabinetry. Meanwhile, gold accents on cabinet door handles and the hardwood floor contrast with the black cabinetry and walls.

The space is anchored by a round, oversized mirror above the black upholstery bench, which reflects the lovely black entryway. Finally, track lighting with a black finish completes the overall look of this bold-looking space.

7. An entrance that doubles as a cafe-bar

We're loving this entryway by PINS Studio. To fully utilise the space, the designer installed a long bench that doubles as a cafe-style bar, giving the impression that you are entering a cafe, especially with the installation of a sliding glass door that connects the entryway to the kitchen.

A similar floor-to-ceiling built-in cabinet lends a cohesive feel to the space, whilst helping to hide clutter when guests enter the house. Last but not least, the designer installed an old-school grey terrazzo floor to add contrast and lend a retro vibe to the space.
