The entryway of a home is often one of the first things that visitors notice. A well-maintained and inviting entryway can make guests feel welcome and at ease. However, an unkempt or cluttered entryway can convey the opposite impression. Fortunately, there are many types of remodeling projects that can improve your entryway’s appearance. Simply making some key changes around your front door will help you create a more attractive space.
Update the Door’s Style and Color
First, consider what kind of style best fits your home’s exterior by considering the building materials that were used during construction. For example, if most of your home was built using wood siding, it would make sense to paint your front door in a contrasting color to highlight the entrance. Conversely, if your home has mostly brick or stone exteriors, you can use complementary paint colors to draw attention to your entryway. If your door is old and outdated, then you may need to update the door entirely to get the look you want.
From there, it’s time to move inside and address particular elements of your entryway’s design. If there are cabinets near the front door, removing the doors from each unit will make a roomier space. By placing some plants next to either side of these open cabinets, you can add some more visual interest and introduce greenery into your home’s décor without having to spend a lot of money on upgrades. Putting plants that grow as vines around the door, you can introduce greenery that feels more like the outdoors to your visitors as well.
Photos and Mirrors Add Appeal
Another way to add visual interest while improving your entryway is by hanging a large mirror near the front door. You can also add flowers or photos of family and friends, and display them in an attractive frame that matches the color scheme already established for your home.
