The entrance of every award-giving ceremony (like the Oscars and the Emmys) always have a red carpet. It’s the entrance that sets the tone for the event. The entry of your home should be no different. Your walk from the street to the front door should feel thrilling and exciting as a red carpet walk. When you enter your home, you should feel welcomed and enthralled.
Our take on the entry
The entry is integral to the design of the house. It opens the home to you and your visitors but allows for a little privacy. Here, the person avoids walking into a large living room from the front door.
In this home, the entry doesn’t lead a person up to the stairs and into the private rooms of the house.
It’s nice to have a mudroom where you can welcome visitors before you can invite them further into your home. Here, the homeowners and their visitors can remove their footwear and store their coats.
In this apartment, there’s a bench seat and a massive storage area where visitors can keep their coats.The secret compartment keeps everything tidy.
You shouldn’t overlook the design of your entryway. It’s not one of the money rooms (e.g. kitchens, bathrooms, living room) but it makes a great impression.
In this home, the first thing the visitor sees is the door to the bathroom door. Guests who come for a visit will feel more at home because they know that can have a little privacy. Having an accessible bathroom makes them feel more comfortable; their visit becomes more enjoyable as well.
A beautiful and well-organized entryway makes a home feel more inviting. Create one, make it stylish and functional, but don’t over do it. 😊
