The entrance to your house is the first impression a guest has on your home. It may not seem like your top priority for décor, but making your entry pop will give your guests a luxurious impression of your home from the second they step through the front door. Here are some simple ways you can make your entry stand out.
First, think about storage. Having shoes and jackets lying about in your entry way will make your home seem cluttered and messy. If your home entrance doesn’t already come with an entry closet consider purchasing a stand up wardrobe. Adding shelving to your entrance with bins for shoes instead of displaying your shoes for all to see is another way to make your home look tidier.
Flowers are a simple and inexpensive way to make your entrance feel welcoming. Putting the flowers on an end table right next to the door will not only look nice, but also hit your guests with a pleasant smell as they enter your home.
Adding a bench of some sort will also give your entrance a welcoming feel. Having a place where your guests can sit down to take off their shoes will already have them feeling much more comfortable than an average entrance.
Everyone’s home has a certain personality to it. If you want guests to get a certain impression of your home, you should be sure your entry gives off that same feeling. The first impression of your home can set the mood for an entire event at your home so make sure that it’s a good one.
