Rocking The Front Entry With An Open Bookcase

As a longtime city dweller, I’ve notice that many apartments and homes don’t have a foyer or true entryway. Instead the front door opens right into the main living space. If you are looking for an idea for creating a faux entry space, consider this awesome idea – an open bookcase.

The cool thing about an open bookshelf is that you can add height to it by doing a little DIY with some good measurements and your handyman mentality. Also the open shelves allow for fantastic light and openness, allowing the space to continue to flow.  And now you have some great spots to do some serious accessorizing – have fun!
