Over 60 Gorgeous Foyer Bench Ideas for Your Home
Having an entryway is kind of a luxury I think. Often times many homes do not have a dedicated foyer or entry to their home, and that is okay! The hard thing about it, is most people like to have a spot where people can sit to remove shoes, hang jackets, you know that sort of thing. Whether you have a small space or a large space in your entryway, its important to take advantage of it and create the most functional as well as stylish space for you and your guests. Rarely do people have a dedicated mudroom where they can put all this stuff, and the foyer is the next best spot. I want to share over 60 foyer bench ideas today, including some images of different foyers, as well as a collection of gorgeous and functional foyer bench options that you could use in your home.
I have changed my entryway many times over throughout the years. I have used an entry table, a bench and ultimately settled on my antique church pew as my favorite feature in my foyer. I added some hooks to the walls to give people a place to store their jackets and other accessories as well as some cute decor items. I love creating a space that is functional and beautiful.
I feel like my entry way is of average size, not huge but its not a small entryway either. Whether you are wanting to build a DIY bench of your own, or a bench – coat rack combination there are tons of different plans and ideas online that you can use to create your own. Ana White has tons of great tutorials on DIY entryway benches and more. On top of that, there are thousands of different foyer bench ideas online available for purchase.
Adding an entryway storage bench is a great way to add much needed storage into a home as well as place to sit and rest while taking off shoes or to visit. It can so much more than just a piece of furniture. There is no reason why you cant have something that is functional and beautiful too. You can use it as extra seating and its the perfect place to set your accessories.
If you have a tiny entryway off the living room it is a good idea to add something minimal that will also be functional. A small foyer doesn’t mean that you cant create a landing space that works for your home. Even a small amount of extra storage space with a small bench is enough to help create a functional home and whether you want a modern design or lean toward the traditional design options there are thousands out there. Let me share some with you.

In a more narrow hallway type of entryway, having a simple wood bench is the perfect thing. I love this rustic bench and the oodles of character it has. It is a great option for a narrow hallway. A narrow side table would also look great too. The simple rug is the perfect accessory in a foyer. Gorgeous artwork is also a great thing to add as wall decor of any space.
