Before you reach your living room and other major parts of your HDB, you will have to pass through one of the most unprioritised areas in your home- the entryway.
Most HDB flats do not come with a spacious entryway. Thus the entrance becomes one of the most cluttered spaces, with all the shoes aligned on top of the entrance mat. The unsightly stacks of shoes make the narrow space more suffocating. No, that is not the first impression that you want to leave to your guests.

22. Legged Shoe Cabinet for an Illusion of Space
Function definitely comes before the form, especially if you are dealing with a smaller space. But there are times that a function can be attained when you choose a particular form. This is true for furniture pieces that are made to optimise space.
Legged furniture pieces are proven to add up elegance and function to space without bulkiness.
An entrance does not have to be light or bright to make it impactful and welcoming. A mixture of dark neutral colours and a simplistic two-door shoe cabinet can boost the elegance of your space.

Play with layers of geometric acrylic mirrors and add some touch of brass for a more dramatic appeal. Create contrast with soft rugs or a long patterned carpet.
Your minimalistic style does not have to start from your main areas. A minimalist foyer is definitely refreshing to the eye, especially if you’ve been through a tough commute before reaching home. To achieve a welcoming minimalist entryway, you may incorporate do-it-yourself ventilation blocks or open bookshelves as your partition. Use a compact wooden-legged shoe cabinet to fill in negative space and ditch the clutter. Choose a combination of tall figurines and wide ornaments to cut the monotony.

23. Open Metal Shoe Rack
A foyer upgrade on a budget? Of course, it is possible. There are tons of tricks and creative ways to spruce up your entryway, even if you are using more affordable materials like open metal shoe racks.
Open shoe racks are probably the most affordable go-tos when it comes to keeping your shoes together. Metal shoe racks often come with minimal designs and focus on directly displaying your shoes while keeping all of them in place.
Depending on the array of shoes you have, designing an open shoe rack might be challenging, especially when you have varieties that come in different colours. To address this, opt for a monochromatic metal shoe rack that can easily blend with varying styles of shoes.
To create a cohesive look, organise your shoes according to colour, style, or material- whatever is more convenient for you. Since you are flaunting your actual collection, you do not have to limit yourself to the conventional mall toe-facing front shoe placement. You can experiment with different shoe storage positions too! Try placing your shoes backwards, heel to the front to make the compartment look less empty. You can also try alternate stacking.
An open metal shoe rack with streamlined details is perfect for a narrow entryway. If you want to focus on a functional and simplistic space, this metal shoe rack is your practical solution. This powder-coated copper colour steel shelf can rock diverse styles and entryway configurations. To add some creative touches to your foyer, place a waterproof decorative mat and a quirky DIY umbrella holder to make your entryway look more personalised.
It is good to flaunt your shoes and make them a part of your entryway’s display, but sometimes, pairing diverse shoe colours and designs does not work easily. A practical tip to address this is to organise some weave baskets on top of each compartment to make your shoes less exposed.
