When you have to design your home from scratch or you focus on revamping it, you probably don’t give your entrance a second thought. After all, it’s just a door – it’s important what is hidden behind it. That sounds suspiciously like something Mother Duck used to tell the Ugly Duckling before it turned into a beautiful swan. If you want your home to impress visitors, you have to take the entrance, the pathway and the main entry door into careful consideration.
Very often your entrance can make or break the first impression of a visitor. So, forget about your dilemma of whether to get a welcome mat with a funny inscription or something time-tested like “Home Sweet Home”. Be more creative when you have to design your home entrance and street facade an impressive or homely design is worth more than thousand welcome mats.
If I have to be honest each entrance design is different from all the others, therefore you can find as many ideas as the number of houses you sift through. All the ideas I have chosen to show you have one thing in common – they are not your average “white picket fence” front doors. Each and every one of them has its surprise element.
Some use lawn and concrete block elements to break the outdated front yard path stereotype. Others accent on the intricate lighting to jazz up the exterior design. Extremely modern and luxurious these entries are the dream of every NSW capital city cleaner as they are easy to maintain. Concrete blocks, stone pavers and wooden decks make morning sweeping and thorough clean ups a breeze.
Don’t forget that when you aim to make a great first impression, you have to think about more than just design. Functionality and cleanliness are also an essential part of the modern home entrance plan.
