17 Amazing Coastal Entryways You Must See

If you are looking to redesign the front entryway of your coastal beach home, then we hope this post will inspire you. We’ve gathered a selection of the most beautiful coastal entryways to guide your design decisions. The entryway is the first room that you, your family, and your guests will see as they enter your home. It has to make a good impression and provide a practical space for taking your coat on and off as well as your belongings.

Coastal Entryways

It’s important to think about how you will use your coastal entryway in your home. A coastal entryway might be the place where you take off your sandy shoes after coming in from the beach. It’s necessary to consider the purpose of your beach home entryway as you go about designing it. Will it get wet and messy? It might be good to keep a vacuum cleaner nearby and forego a nice rug. If you have a separate mudroom, then this might not be necessary. In any case, there are lots of coastal decor ideas that can inspire your decorating choices and make the space very beachy and fun!

Striped Rug

This modern coastal entryway has a bold blue and white striped rug to welcome guests. It has a vaulted ceiling, shiplap walls, and a faded blue front door all of which give a character. A rustic wood console table is against the wall. There are two blue matching table lamps, a shell that holds indoor plants, and a round white mirror attached to the wall.

Shiplap Ceiling and Rattan Chandeliers

A creative way to decorate your entryway is to use shiplap on the ceiling. Wicker globe pendant lights and abstract coastal artwork will add a lot of charm.

White Coral Decor Accent

Sometimes you just need a touch of coral in your entryway. I love the blue tufted bench beneath the wood console table in this space.

Beaded Chandelier

A bold blue rug can work wonders. A white beaded chandelier is always a good idea, too!

Palm Leaves Decoration

Palm leaves are a very common theme in coastal entryways. I like how this homeowner put a large floor-length mirror behind a wood console table. That’s not something you see every day!

Pastel blue wall paint

Painting the wall of your entryway a bold blue will surely make a statement. Then use neutral furniture and decorations to lighten up the space.

  1. Your website is a bit garbage. The pictures are sized in a way there they don’t really fit on a computer monitor. Sure, it might be designed for mobile, but you ought to just make it work for both. sheeeeeeeeeeeesh

    1. Thanks for your feedback! I sized the images larger on purpose since I figured most people would prefer images that are too big rather than too small. And yes, from giant monitors to small mobiles, it’s nearly impossible to make everyone happy on every size screen.

      You can always zoom out (hit Command then -) to display the website smaller if the images are too big for your computer!

  2. Great website and articles! – some people will ever b happy (negative comment above)… SMFAH (this acronym can be many things) :)
