AddThis Social Bookmark Button

First impressions are vital and a home’s entrance, front door and interior foyer, the area of the home that reveals as much about the homeowner as it does about the home needs to convey the homeowner’s signature message.

 

Therefore, decorating the entrance is essential for crafting an overall graceful, stylish message. Many elements go into achieving that impression, however, and it’s easy to be at a loss as to what actions will be effective in designing the house. These points will unveil how to enhance the entryway of your home.

Size Each Element Carefully

While many homeowners chose to enhance the exterior entryway, one must be conscientious of proportions to put together a charming outfit, so too do the relative sizes of objects matter in an entryway.

For those choosing plants and their corresponding containers should not be so small that they feel out of place alone, nor should they contribute to a cluttered feeling when grouped together. It is generally safer to go with a few larger pots or vases, rather than a multitude of small ones. If there is a doormat present, its edges should line up with or exceed the sides of the doorway so that it does not appear mismatched to the entrance.

No planters or exterior decoration can also create the perfect opportunity to showcase the chosen doorway. A double doorway, with exterior ornaments for knocking, or the myriad of individualized entrances available can speak volumes and become part of the home’s statement.

Play With the Lighting

Colors and intricate patterns in the architecture and landscaping are shrouded out of view as the evening arrives. To keep your entryway’s various aspects discernible, well-placed lights are needed.

They should have a style that corresponds with the design of the house itself. For example, a mid-century modern home would have smooth, geometric lighting, while a Victorian home would have ornate lights.

More than the look of the individual fixtures, the way in which the light casts around the entryway is important. Striking a balance between highlighting other design elements and being a source of beauty should be the aim of the lights.

Update the Entry Door

A home’s entryway will be seen daily and naturally tends to draw the most attention. The door stands as a centerpiece amidst the walls, so choosing the right entry door is essential for someone wondering how to enhance the entryway of a home. In addition to the more obvious consideration of whether or not the door stylistically fits in visually with the rest of the home, there are other characteristics to consider.

Attention to the small details, such as materials or the precise shade of the paint, can make an enormous impact on the room’s atmosphere. Remembering, the door must also serve its practical function well and fit exactly to the frame so that it remains flawless under close scrutiny and does not cause security or energy-efficiency issues.
