It may not be the home space you pay the most attention to, but it is the first one you see every day when you cross the door – and the first one your visitors see. How is the entrance of your house? We have compiled a few ideas to decorate a hall and give it a more current touch with some of the trends that dominate the decoration stores we like: XXL plants, ethnic prints, accessories with a Nordic touch … tell us if you miss something in the comments!
A console with an industrial touch
A beautiful wooden board and metal legs. You do not need much more to give a modern industrial touch to the entrance of the house. This type of consoles is very fashionable and we understand why. They are great!
If you like this scroll, you can buy a table of this style in a decoration shop like Kenay Home (first image), or make it yourself by buying the materials separately.
Round mirrors to decorate the house entrance
One of those things that is not usually missing at the entrance of the house is a mirror in which to check that everything is in order before leaving. In addition, as the receivers are not usually too large areas, they will serve to give a sense of depth.
There are a thousand ways to decorate with mirrors, but we are left with the smoothness of the lines of round mirrors, which are also an absolute trend. This image is the Stockholm model of Ikea, which has a diameter of about 80 centimeters and costs about 100 euros.
And if you don’t want to scratch your pocket, watch the version low cost: you can buy a round mirror, paste it on a thick wooden board that you cut with the same shape and hang it with the help … of a belt! Easy and effective

Decorate the hall with pictures
A very cool option to decorate the first wall that your visitors will see is to create a composition with paintings. You can combine pictures with the same style, as in the first example, or combine different colors and materials, as in the second case. They can be used to put cool pictures, beautiful photos, letters forming a message … it’s up to you to decide 😉
XXL indoor plants
Decorating with plants never fails. A large and leafy indoor plant, a beautiful flower pot and you already have half decorated hall. Keep an eye on the type of plant you choose: make sure it is a species capable of living indoors such as Adam’s ribs, ficus or cactus.

Rugs with bold prints
If you want to give more warmth to the entrance of the house, put a nice carpet. We are clear about our choice in this field: striking, powerful prints that have prominence. Watch out for these two examples that we have found: large rugs, ethnic motifs and warm colors. What do you think?
Wooden benches to sit when you get home
The first thing you do when you get home is take off your shoes? Then you need a comfortable and beautiful bench to sit on. This example of Maisons du Monde is perfect to give a rustic touch to the entrance of the house, combining uneven circular wooden slats and a fabric Animal Print Very cool
And if that sitting does not go with you, you can also use a wooden bench to put all those magazines and books that you no longer know where to put. Marie Kondo probably doesn’t like it, but as a decorative touch we love it.
More alternatives Keep an eye on this idea that combines a bench with storage space: you can reuse a wooden trunk and upholster its cover.
Hang the keys to never lose them
If you like to always leave the keys in the same place, you can put a beautiful key holder on the walls of your hall. Putting it near the door, always in sight, is a good way to never forget it. This metal wonder is from Urban Outfitters.
Another option is to make, in addition to the key holder, a set of key rings that combine with the support. In this case, both key locks are made in a manner, but in the first keychains are spheres of the same material and in the second, geometric metal figures. Which one do you like the most?
Coat racks with a Nordic touch
Fundamental: you need a place to leave jackets, hats, bags … These three examples are, in addition to beautiful, low cost. In the first, they have combined four circular wooden slats, crossing them at the top, as if it were a teepee.
In this case, with a more industrial touch, they have opted to build a donkey for clothes with three copper pipes and a wooden base. Supersencillo, practical – it also has space for shoes – and beautiful.
This last example is also quite simple: a wooden bar hung horizontally on the wall, with hooks to hang whatever you want. As in the image, it can also be used to place some type of decorative element as a beautiful frame.
Shoemakers for the hall
Do you also like to take off your shoes as soon as you get home? Having a shoe cabinet in the hall always comes in handy to have them well organized. These three wooden ideas will fulfill their function well, and they can also be used as benches.
