How to Decorate a Curved Wall Entry

Last updated on November 10, 2019

Have a curved wall entry in your house? Let’s turn it into an amazing decor statement that welcomes your guests.

A curved wall in the entryway is the result of a staircase and it’s a popular feature in many houses. Having it in your home is a great opportunity to create stunning decor. But it poses a challenge as well. You don’t decorate curved walls often because they aren’t commonplace in other areas of the house.

Entryway Furniture

The choice of the furniture is limited to the small curved space against the wall. These are your options:

  • A curved design dresser – look for vintage options to create the best accent.
  • A narrow console table – it doesn’t have to be curved, just small enough to leave as little empty space against the wall as possible.
  • A curved bench – a bench against the wall will provide seating space as well as storage space for shoes.
  • A small table and a chair – a mixed setup with seating and a catch-all command center is an alternative to the single-furniture setup. Decorated in such a way the space becomes more inviting.
  • A custom DIY solution – if all else fails, make something homemade. This can be a unique table, curved wainscoting, etc.

Entryway Table Decoration Ideas

The entryway table is the ideal place to create a decor vignette that will be a big part of the statement. The basic rules of a console table decor apply:

  • Place a big wall art or a gallery in the background.
  • Add a big decor item on one side as the visual weight (such as a table lamp).
  • Add series of smaller items in increasing height on the other side (for example 3 vases or candle holders).
  • Layer smaller decor items in the middle.

Entryway Wall Decor

A curved wall has a few caveats when hanging art on it. However, to decorate the entryway well you will need to hang something on that wall.

  • Plan your wall art setup by laying out the frames on the floor. That is, if you’re hanging more than one frame.
  • Hanging a frame on a curved wall is actually little different than a standard wall. You only need to attach some wire to the hanger.
  • Measure and mark the holes where the hangers should go.
  • Drill the holes and add the screws.
  • Hang the frames.

Here are some ideas of what you can hang in this space:

  • Your family gallery
  • One big statement piece of art
  • Vintage plates for whimsical decor
  • Mirrors
