The entryway tends to be an overlooked space but it’s actually one of the most important areas of the entire house, today I’m going to show you some ways to make that entryway really stand out and separate from the living room. The entryway gives the first impression to your guests and it sets the tone. So it’s really important for the exterior especially entrance to be absolutely singing and inviting as well, so I’m going to go over what needs to be taken care of.

Have a Designated Entryway

The best way to create a designated entryway is to use a floor rug which is not just functional but it also serves as a nice divider between the entryway in the living room. The next thing you want is to have a table or hanging hook so that you can drop your keys or your jacket off as you come in the door, this will allow the energy to pause before rushing in to the next room. The entryway sets the tone for the whole house so placing a picture of your family or a photo that’s inspiring to you is a great way to really make the entryway its own designated space.

Front Door

Your front door is one of the first things visitor see when they approach your home if the door is drafty or not opening properly it’s time to make some improvements. Replacing your front door can be a great investment both in curb appeal for your home and energy efficiency. Even if you’re on a tight budget you can invest in improvements in your front door for example you could add new weather stripping to your door that will help your energy efficiency and it could cost as little as ten dollars and if the actual structure of your door is in good shape but you’re just not happy with the way it looks a fresh coat of paint and some new hardware can really brighten it up. Another way to update your home’s look at a fraction of the cost is to install decorative glass into your current door most doors 99 out of 100 doors there’s nothing wrong with them unless there’s some kind of a rot or the frame is broke you can use your existing entryway and in less time and considerably less cost and less mess update that entryway for a very elegant enhancement.

Mirrored Furniture

I’m a big fan of mirrored furniture and if you’re into bling you’re probably more likely to go with mirrored furniture. Also now it is not kid-friendly so if you have a lot of kids or things like that I probably wouldn’t recommend it but you know for you if you’re single or anything like that definitely you can go with it. The drawback with mirrored furniture is it can be quite expensive and so what you can do is if you don’t want to you know have the expense of mirrored furniture, you can incorporate it into your accessories such like a mirrored lamp as it also gives that mirrored and that blinged effect giving you that sparkle.  Another thing is chandelier, if you could find a gorgeous blinged-out chandelier to put in your entryway and replace that standard grade entryway light with a beautiful light fixture it would do wonders.

I hope that you can find these quick tips are helpful in making your home entrance inviting all year and I wish you so much luck with your entryway.
