If you love all things modern farmhouse style and are looking to give your home’s entryway a bit of a revamp, you won’t want to miss out on these creative styling tips. Below, we’re sharing some on-trend styling ideas for everyone, no matter whether you’re dealing with a small space or happen to have a spacious entryway.
Read on to find inspiration from these 30 modern farmhouse entryway ideas.
Use a Dresser
Keep in mind that while there are many different console tables to choose from, you don’t have to go the traditional route when selecting furniture for your entryway. Here, a small wooden dresser looks lovely on the landing while also providing plenty of storage for gear of all kinds.
Style Faux Branches
Freshen up your entryway with some florals. Even if you can’t purchase a flower bouquet every week, you’ll be able to easily brighten up your home with some faux stems. These red branches are perfectly farmhouse chic.
Modern farmhouse homes are meant to feel nice and cozy, and one way to achieve such a look is by layering objects in an artful manner, as illustrated here. Don’t be afraid to mix various finishes and textures in your home.
Add Wicker Baskets
Wicker baskets are also a modern farmhouse staple; you’ll find them styled in many of the entryways shown here. Baskets are also very functional since they can be additional storage vessels to hide clutter. Fill yours with outerwear, reusable tote bags, blankets, and more.
Incorporate Industrial Pieces
If you like your modern farmhouse home with a side of industrial flair, take a cue from this entryway, which contains black metallic pieces that really pop.
Go With Wood
Modern farmhouse homes are full of wooden furniture of all kinds. This simple yet sturdy entryway table is bound to stand the test of time both functionally and stylistically.
If you live in a large household, consider installing hooks in the entryway to keep each family member’s belongings organized. Placing a farmhouse-style bench in front of the hooks warms up the space while ensuring that there’s always a spot to sit and lace up your boots.
Opt for a Multipurpose Piece
In fact, you can choose to forgo a traditional table altogether and opt for a bench instead. This one can be used as seating but is also a handy spot to set down piles of mail and packages.
If your hallway is on the narrower end, opt for a super thin wooden table like this one. After all, you don’t want to be bumping into things on your way in and out the door.
Try Hanging Baskets
Accessorize your entryway with cute hanging baskets, like these woven ones. They can solely serve a decorative purpose if you wish, but they can also be useful for housing letters that need to be mailed out, receipts you need to hold onto, and other small goods.
Install Open Shelving
If your entryway happens to have a niche like this one, install some shelves and go to town decorating them with your favorite modern farmhouse accents. Some staples we love? Landscape art, fake plants, and a small woven basket or two.
Showcase Dried Flowers
Dried flowers shine in farmhouse-style homes no matter the season. The best part is that you don’t even need a vase to display yours. Simply hang up your bouquet on a hook in the entryway for a casual, calming look.
Illuminate Your Space
Brighten up the entryway with wall sconces or candles (you can opt for a flameless design if you plan to keep these lights on for long periods of time). This type of setup also eliminates the need for a table lamp, freeing up space on your console for other trinkets.
Keep It Simple
If you’re drawn to a simplistic look at home, stick to just the basics. Here, a wooden table, basket, vase, and candle prove that minimal can most certainly be beautiful.
Again, this entryway is streamlined and chic. Add height with tall vases like these—whether they’re filled with branches or left empty, they’ll capture visitors’ attention right away.
Designate a Spot
You can never have too many small wooden accents in your modern farmhouse home. Here, a petite, trinket tray is a great spot for setting down keys upon returning home.
Pick a Plant
Modern farmhouse spaces also take cues from nature and tall plants. Olive trees and fiddle leaf figs are both popular picks. Place one—whether real or faux—in a basket by the front door to start your day off on a cheerful note.
Skip a Table
If your entryway is too small to fit a table of any kind, set out a basket instead. At the end of the day, empty it and return everything to its rightful spot in the hall closet or upstairs.
DIY Cute Cubbies
If you’re feeling crafty, you can always DIY some entryway benches like these, using a farmhouse-style fabric such as this windowpane print to create some neat seating. Don’t forget to make the most of your benches by incorporating some cubbies underneath.
Use your favorite wicker pieces, such as beach totes and sun hats, as decor in your entryway. By keeping these items accessible, you’ll most likely wear them more, too, ensuring that they don’t become lost in the depths of your closet.
Bring in a Cabinet
How sweet is this little cabinet? Place a piece like this in the entryway to maximize storage and showcase a few of your favorite things, such as books, pictures, and more. Talk about an instant conversation starter when guests come by.
Place Plush Pillows
Cozy up your entryway with the addition of some soft throw pillows. Anything striped or linen is automatically a winner when it comes to modern farmhouse style.
If you choose to jazz up your entryway for the winter holidays, consider sticking to neutral accents. These will add a festive touch to your console table without appearing too chaotic.
Put Up a Clock
While most people no longer rely on wall clocks to tell time, there’s something about a good old-fashioned clock—particularly an oversized one—that’s just so charming. Consider hanging one in your entryway to pay a nod to the past.
Try an Olive Tree
As noted earlier, olive trees are a farmhouse fave. Here, a small fake tree adds some welcome color to this otherwise neutral entryway nook.
Lean Your Mirror
Modern farmhouse spaces are known for being relaxed and not too stuffy. To better achieve that laid-back look, lean your entryway mirror rather than nailing it to the wall.
Purchase Landscape Art
Original landscape art can cost a pretty penny, but many home stores are now offering authentic-looking replicas at more manageable prices, making it easy to embrace this aesthetic at home. Hang a couple of nature prints by the front door or lean them on your console table.
Bring on the Branches
No room for an olive tree? Try some olive branches instead. Place them into a ceramic vessel to fully embrace modern farmhouse design.
There’s nothing wrong with going a bit glam and working some gold into your modern farmhouse space. This ornate mirror shines brightly alongside more rustic decor items.
Grab a few coffee table books that speak to you and stack them up by the front door to add some personality to your entryway vignette. Keep an eye out for inspiring titles while thrifting, too.
