The entrance to a house or the porch area is not a simple space leading to the main door. This space acts as a connection between the interiors and exteriors of the house. Most importantly, this area contributes significantly to the beauty of the house. This is the reason that the porch or the house entrance should be designed in a manner so that it is in sync with the overall appearance and beauty of the house.

Mentioned below you will find 15 amazing and beautiful décor designs for the patio or the house entrance. Choose the one that seems most suitable for your house:

1. Use of granite

Granite is one of the most popular materials used for flooring in the porch area or in the house entrance. Granite has many advantages like it is easy on cleaning and maintenance, it is durable and it offers a frictional surface for better grip. The material is a safe option for family members, particularly elderly people. There is slight water permeability and while using the area during rains, it will be less mossy.

2. Combination of stones in different tones

Check out the different tones of the stones in the design. The combination of marble with neutral and gray shade adds a lot of difference to the space. The whole entrance gets a unique appearance with this setting.

3. White concrete floor with modern look

This porch is also the entrance to the house. Monolithic slabs have been installed in the area for high durability. White cement has also been used in the area for enhancing the modern appearance of the house. To ensure that the porch is beautifully done, the concrete slab should be made smooth in a manner that there are no spots or edges in the same. The builder should be skilled and experienced for this job. If you have time constraint, you can use prefabricated concrete slabs and professionals will just need to place them together.

4. The gray flooring

Natural stones in different sizes can be combined together to create unique beauty in the porch of a house. It is not mandatory that the stones which are chosen are of the same color. The best option is choosing stones in the same color scheme but in varying shades. Natural beauty of the home is enhanced in this manner.
