We all have heard the adage ‘first impression is the last impression’. The same stands true for your house as well. The entrance of the house helps in creating the first impression, particularly when guests are visiting your place for the first time. It is quite sad but true that we often ignore the entrance of the house and do not pay proper attention to its décor.

Mentioned below are amazing ideas of giving a new life and décor to the home entrance. The dull looking space can be transformed with these interesting ideas:

1. Use a different material for coating the wall

The addition of some new kind of texture can change the way an entrance looks. To emphasise the entrance, cover a wall with brick, wood or stone or combination of all. You can also add suitable lights and mirrors so that the space looks well lit. Doing this can be less expensive as all the materials are costly. But there are synthetic alternatives available readily in the market and these can bring in very realistic results.

2. Stylized furniture, rug and use of light

In case you have a narrow entrance, it is recommended to keep lesser numbers of objects so that the passage remains smooth and free. In this case, the sleek, stylised furniture with the table lamp and the rug on the floor give the entrance a nice and cosy appearance. Geometric patterns need special mention.

3. Use of wood, flowers and candles

All these three elements – wood, flowers and candles have a sense of closeness and warmth. Decorate the entrance with these items and see how they help in spreading the cosiness all throughout the house. Flowers not only enhance visual appeal, but also spread sweet fragrance with their presence. Candles illuminate the space in a subtle and romantic manner, creating a beautiful ambience overall.

4. Maintaining harmony
