is a hall
in a house
that is located at the front entrance of the house. An entryway usually has linoleum
flooring rather than carpet
. An entryway also often has a coat closet
. Many houses do not have entryways, and in many houses the front door leads straight into the living room
or some other room in the house. The majority of houses with entryways are located outside the United States, as most modern American houses lack them.
Some university dormitories use the term "entryway" to refer to sometimes non-communicating sections of the residence hall, each having its own door, designed to create small residential communities within the larger house.
