Mirrors are a great addition to an entryway. They make it look bigger, reflect light which brightens things up and means you can have a final check of your appearance on the way out the door. You can pick between geometric and classic shapes, while the brass colour and chain offer a peaceful Nordic inspired feel.

Look at a blank wall in your hallway and think of it as a blank canvas. Wall art is a fantastic way to spice things up, put your personal imprint on your home and set the tone for arrivals.

We love this retro cassette print from Cotton On, but there are ten designs in total available, so if motivational quotes are more your scene you’ll be able to find something that suits your taste.

Adhesive hooks included in the purchase make it an ideal pick for renters and means for homeowners you don’t get any nasty marks on the wall either. 

5. Wandewoo darwin ceramic vase

If you want a splash of green in your entryway, without the upkeep of plants, a fabulous vase for a regular flow of flowers is a wonderful alternative. 

You might need to buy flowers more often than plants, but they need less attention and you can rotate the flowers according to the season. Alternatively, dried flowers and plants are an easy solution if you struggle to keep flowers or plants alive.

This ceramic vase is a great choice, muted enough to work with most kinds and colours of flowers. 

6. Natural coconut palm doorway mat

This natural coconut palm doormat brings earthy tones into your home. It ensures you don’t track dirt in across the threshold, gives you a place to slip on your shoes before you leave the house, and can help ground your entire entryway.

Durable construction means it will stand up to a lot of wiping down and the size means you don’t need to use it one at time with family or friends.

7. Typo A4 framed print

If you’re worried about the hallway being overcrowded by a larger canvas, having a smaller print in a neutral wooden frame helps fill the space and adds a touch of personality, without being too overbearing.

Our favourite of these five prints is this film snap which showcases strong Californian vibes, but subtler alternatives like florals are also on offer.

8. Standing clothes rack

Keep your hallway clear and organised with a coat and hat rack, storing all your belongings in the same place.

Not only is it useful to have easy access to your coats as you’re about to leave your home, but it also allows guests to know where to hang their coats. It is a timeless storage solution for a reason.
