deciding what to do with this front hall
February 22, 2013 in Design Dilemma
I want some kind of bench in this area, but don't know where to put it (ie along the rail or by the door). What else does the space need to warm it up.

What a beautiful entry indeed! I think your only option for a bench is along the rail. Your wall space certainly isn't long enough to allow for the size of a bench. Is your front entry closet directly across from the railing? If so, a bench would function quite nicely close to the closet..

How about one with some excitement to it?

I agree put the bench by the railings. Perhaps something with a thin or low back to maintain the transparency.

I also agree that a bench would work--but it should be upholstered with som color of pattern to further enliven the entry. A fabric with some shine would be welcome. Also i would consider removing the railing and installing a solid knee wall the dame heignt as the existing railing. This wall cou;ld be painted a color to play off the bench, and the top of the knee wall could be finished with wood trim and stained to match the flooring.

I thought this style of bench would suit the spot along your railing. has storage tucked away under the seat.

Your entry looks big enough to place a round entry table in it. If that is the case, then I would place the table centered on the arched openings. The table need not be as large as the one shown below, but should be at least 36" in diameter. The size of the table will depend on the size of the hallway. A bench could indeed be added along the railing.
