4 Fundementals of a Great Entry Way (Plus 25 ideas for Inspiration!)

4 steps to a Pin worthy entry way! Great decor ideas for any size entry way

Your entry way is the first thing guests see when they enter your home. Whether you have a huge foyer or a 4 foot wall to work with, there are so many ways you can turn the space into a welcoming area, full of character.

Start with a strong focal point. Most of the time, this will be on the wall above your table. A photo, painting or mirror are always great options. And don’t be afraid if some of your décor overlaps with your focal point. More below on this!

Layer. Obviously you are going to have décor on your entry way table. What really makes the décor work is layering. You can do this vertically with a stack of books or horizontally by placing smaller items in front of other items. Here are a few examples of this.

Bring in a little bit of nature. This may be a personal preference, but I have really come to love how a little pop of greenery or florals makes a space come to life. Imagine how different each of these entry ways would look without their flowers or greenery. It really makes a big difference! Some of the most popular greenery I see today are succulents and eucalyptus.

Variations in heights and textures. This is one of those little lessons in décor and design that I try to use in every area of my home. Aim to create height on your table with at least two objects. You can do this with greenery, a lamp, a vase, lantern, candles… there are so many choices. As mentioned earlier, let the heights create layers over your main focal point. Here are some great examples of how this can really make the space:

How To Organize Your Kitchen Pantry Like a Pro

How to Organize your pantry, hacks, tips and free printables

Pantries have a reputation for being small, cluttered and just a hassle. As a mom of two, I’ll admit that I’ve opened my pantry a time or two and instantly felt overwhelmed by the sight of it. Luckily, there are a few REALLY great hacks that can save us a lot of space and a lot of time hunting for what we need! Here we go…

This is a great hack, but it doesn’t have to stop with cupcake holders! Small seasoning packets, tea bags, toothpicks, just about anything small can be stored in a container to help keep things tidy!

Lazy Susans can be a lifesaver when it comes to finding what you need in a deeper shelfed pantry. My mom uses these to keep her spices organized and it always made it so easy to find what you were looking for. You can find the one pictured above on Amazon here. While researching for the best Lazy Susan, I also found this version that has compartments. As the photo shows, it’s perfect for baby food pouches, granola bars and other small items that can quickly cause a clutter! It

If you need proof that this hack works wonders, check out all the comments on the Pin! So many people have uploaded photos to show their newly organized pantry using a magazine file and super sticky adhesive! You can find durable and reasonably priced magazine holders here.

Magazine holders can also help with storing your re-usable water bottles too!

All you need to make this hack happen is command hooks and sandwich bags that have small holes in the handles! Photo from FennellSeeds.com

If you don’t have the wall space to make this hack happen, you can simply use a pants hanger to close and hang your chip bags!

One of the most impactful ways you can organize your pantry (and make it really pretty!) is to use storage containers and labels.

When you use storage containers (from a set), things just fit together much better on the shelf. Plus, if you purchase high quality ones with an air tight seal, your food will last longer too! Here’s a great set of 10 plastic food storage containers (BPA free)

If you prefer glass storage containers, I’d recommend these, as they have a date dial lid that can help you ensure you don’t keep food past it’s expiration date! Find them here.

For these gorgeous labels, be sure to visit Cyndys blog, The Creativity Exchange! She has a full tutorial here on how to make them!

Now, for all of those things that don’t fit in a storage container, consider using baskets. Again, it’s easier to pull out a basket and search through it than it is to dig down deep into the back of a shelf, hopelessly feeling around for whatever it is you are looking for.
