Taking on any home decor project can be time-consuming, not to mention costly and the entryway is no exception to the rule. Between the planning stages, swatching for paint colors and even browsing for that perfect bench, taking on an entryway redesign comes with its fair share of challenges.
That said, you can get the best of both worlds when it comes to style and cost and it doesn t have to be exorbitantly expensive. For the ultimate mudroom, you ll love coming home to every day, you can tackle this project for under $500. Read on to learn how.


Large or small, wide or narrow, every foyer has the potential to make a great first impression on guests. Consider the following list to catalog the standard items in an entryway:
  • Paint, in case you want to redo the walls, or paint an accent wall
  • Indoor plants (real or fake) greenery transcends every style
  • A light fixture, such as a pendant or table lamp (together they make layered beauty)
  • Accent bench (with storage underneath or inside as an option)
  • A runner rug or door rugs
  • Hooks or a rack for purses, keys, and coats
  • Mirror or wall art to brighten up the space
  • Baskets or boxes for additional storage
With these items in mind, you can customize as you see fit for your space. Not every entryway needs all the items on the aforementioned list, especially if you re limited on space. This will keep costs lower, and ensure you have all the elements needed for style and budget.


No matter what your style, there s a way to revamp your entryway on any budget. We ve got 3 styles below to give you examples on ways you can spruce up your entryway area. Pair this with a bit of paint, wall hooks, and storage bins and organization, and it ll be a perfectly posh space that ll greet you with open arms!
