Your entryway or mudroom is a pretty significant spot in your house. It’s the first point of contact with the place you call home – a spot to sit down, take off your shoes, and ease into the relaxed, at-home version of yourself.
Operating as a catch-all for all your going-out essentials, the entranceway to your home needs to be highly functional. But that doesn’t mean it can’t be a beautiful space, one that works hard while also welcoming you home or sending you on your way.
Depending on the items and activities that are important to you, the need for these spaces can vary greatly from person to person. You might be a fiend for shoes or sunnies, an avid cyclist, or perhaps you want to showcase your collection of handbags. It could even be as simple as having a dedicated spot to place your wallet and keys so that they never get misplaced.
These entryway ideas suit a whole range of needs using colours from the Resene Classics Collection – a specially curated collection of shades with staying power that look great in virtually any home.
The Bang Bang Pegboard from George & Willy is painted in Resene Neutral Bay and provides a landing place for coats, bags and scarves.
For those who prefer concealed storage, a repurposed toy box is strong enough to double as a bench with a couple coats of Resene Desperado on the lid and Resene Putty on the base.
