***Thank you to Wayfair for sponsoring this post so I could share this genius homemaking hack to brighten your entryway!***
I have long mourned our lack of a decent foyer to welcome guests into our home, but thanks to a few savvy fixes, we’ve made smart use of our small available space. And when I say small space, I mean small. Literally, you walk through our front door, take one step and find yourself ascending the staircase to our second floor. As far as spaces go, it is the utmost of sparse utilitarian. This does not mean it can’t be pretty! Regardless of how small and how simply functional a space is, it needn’t be drab. Simple touches make a world of difference. Check this homemaking hack and get set to brighten up your entryway!
Homemaking Hack to Brighten Your Entryway:
Utilitarian spaces can shine in your home. In our very brief entryway space, our DIY coat rack has made a genius functional difference. Since our space consists of only a small corner of a wall and 25 square feet of floor space, after we sorted the wall situation, the only bit left to spruce was the floor! Enter the lovely ELLE Decor Collection accent rugs by Home Dynamix.
ELLE DECOR is known for high end home décor, and I am taken with addition of the Brush Strokes accent rugs recently added to their line. Made of an ultra-durable PVC top, the Brush Strokes collection is water, fade, and stain resistant making it the perfect addition for any kitchen, patio, or entryway. The textured PVC backing helps to prevent slipping and sliding in high-traffic areas. Genius for our busy front door!
I am ticked to find a functional, durable, chic accent rug that brightened up and added a dose of prettiness to our front entryway! A functional place in your home can also be an aesthetically pleasing part of your home, as proven by the lovely, smart practicality of these ELLE DECOR rugs.
My favorite features of this genius homemaking hack?
- Durable. With two very active kids and two very active dogs, a doorway rug can take a beating. This ELLE DECOR rug has the look of a plush lux rug, but the durability of sturdy outdoor rug–exactly what we need for our entryway!
- Amenable to your personal decor preferences in a range of styles, you will find something that works for you–however big or small your space is!

Great hack! My “entryway” or lack of, is very similar to yours and I’m always trying to come up with ways to make it look nicer. Thanks for the ideas!
Not much you can do when it is literally a space for the door to swing open and nothing else 😉 But the rug does help brighten up so much!
Our entry ways are exactly the same (down to the coat rack)! And, I sure could use a new rug; thanks for the suggestion!

I love the colors in the new rug! It’s hard for me to commit to bright colors, but a rug is a pretty simple thing to change I suppose.
Yes! And I love how the watercolor effect allows the colors to be more subtle and gentle. Go for it, Erin 🙂
