Is your entryway forgettable? Is it just the door that you walk in to get to the couch and nothing more?
It doesn’t have to be! As a matter of fact the entrance to your home is one of the places where you should take a little extra time to make a statement and welcome the world into the physical manifestation of yourself: your home.
Shut the Front Door!
Well…shut it, or actually take it off the hinges…and then paint it! Changing up the color of your front door can make a big impact on the entryway. Whether it be a bold red or clean white – or even if you decide to swap out the whole door for a new one – changing up the entrance to your home itself is a great place to get the most bang for your buck.
That little space inside your door might not be much more than a place to kick off your shoes but it’s got a lot of potential depending on the space. If you’ve got the room a nice half bench or small table for decorations is a wonderful use of space; a handy place to put a keycatch to make finding the car keys a breeze!
If you’ve got the room consider adding some small storage cubbys to the entrance area – either under a bench or as a stand alone – to increase storage space and make a handy place to stash away shoes and coats when the Winter months come. Extra bonus: this will keep your floors a little nicer too without so many clumpy shoes running all about.
ART! It’s a thing.
Big blank wall? Ugly plain space that people just pass by? ART IT! Art will add visual interest and color to any area. You can find affordable art these days fairly easily – even large pieces that are great for taking up big wall space. An even better idea is to pay a little more and get something from a local artist to showcase in your home, or if you’re beyond daring paint something yourself!
Show Off the Fam
Hey, your wall doesn’t have to just be on Facebook, and your home should showcase the most important things in your life. It doesn’t have to be just stiff posed family photos – make your entry way into your own personal show space of recent photos, vision boards, and happenings. It can be eclectic, that’s fine! If you’re super creative and have the budget you could even get digital frames to make the images easy to change out.
