Tips to Enhance the Entrance of Your House
13 Jul 2016
It’s the front entrance of your home that makes a first impression on you as well as guests. And as they say, the first impression is often the last! Check out these easy-to-please entryway enhancements that you can do to beautify your entrance:
Paint the Entrance Door
This is one of the places where you can add personality. Picking between neutral shades of grey, white, beige or black have the same potential in making a statement as bold colourssuch as red, yellow or orange.
Add Outdoor Lights
Soft exterior lighting makes your home appear more inviting and friendly. It canalso highlight any feature you want your guests to notice.
Adding flowers is one of the easiest, most cost-effective ways to boost your home’s curb appeal. You can hang baskets on the door or plant flowerbeds by the sides. Stick to perennials, so you don’t have to buy and plant new flowers every year.
Upgrade the hardware
Rather than going for regular door handles, opt for decorative ones with a bit of character.
Install Hooks by the doorway
A freestanding unit with hooks or wall-mounted hooks can be used to store outer garments and accessories.
Use a Shoe Rack
Place a small shoe rack near the front door.Not only it will help visitors to put their shoes in the right place, but it will also make your entrance look neat and tidy.
Use an Umbrella Holder
This is another important item that an entryway must have, especially in the rainy season. Make sure you have an umbrella holder that doesn’t allow water to drip on the floor or else it won’t suffice the purpose.
Add an Artistic Touch
If you’re artistic, you can also spruce up the front wall with a mural, floral painting, ornamental mirrors or any other art work to draw the eyes and add personality.
