75 Useful Home Entry Hall Design Statistics

Gorgeous home foyer with beige walls and dark wood flooring

As you’ll see below, there are 5 aspects/types of entry halls in a home. They are foyer, just a a door, mudroom, hall and vestibule.

We analyzed 235,085 entry halls and put together a pile of statistics set out below. Basically, the statistics set out the percentage of home entries that have various features, colors and attributes.

The most popular type of entry we analyzed is unsurprisingly the foyer, followed by just a door.

What’s really interesting is that we notice mudrooms are very popular on social media. I believe a mudroom is something many houses don’t have but many homeowners want. Moreover, mudrooms are where designers are doing some really innovative work.

If you’re designing or planning an entry for your home, find out what’s popular and what’s not with our seta of data below.
