Apartment Entryway Illusion
Spaces with an open concept floor plan are generally designed with each room flowing into another. Though this can add charisma to the space, often there is not a designated entryway. Thankfully, it is super easy to create your own version of one! Here are a few ways to create an illusion of an apartment entryway
Position couches, chairs, etc. so that their backs face the front door.
Add a table behind the sofa
This creates the illusion of an entry way while also providing an extra spot to drop keys, wallets, mail, shoes, etc.
Place chair benches under the sofa table
Chair benches provide optional seating, take up no additional space and are both functional and welcoming to guests.
Add an area rug or a floor mat
The color and placement can make the space feel bigger too and can give the illusion of an apartment entryway.
An entry hutch or shallow bookcase
This will help to separate the main entryway from other rooms in your apartment.
Decorate the outside of your door
This is a crafty way to warmly welcome guests’ right in- they won’t even notice the lack of an initial entry hall!
