The entrance of a home presents an opportunity to flaunt one’s design sense and unique style. It is an introduction to the home’s design style and sets the tone for what to expect inside. There are many different ways to make the entrance inviting and enticing. Usually, architects and interior designers and decorators work together to make the entrance look aesthetically appealing. They use elements such as structural patterns, greenery, colour and lighting to achieve the desired effect. Take some inspiration from these unique ideas to make the entrance of your home unique and stunning.

1. Green canopy at the entrance

The entrance of independent houses begins from the main gate. The walkway from the main gate to the house can be made memorable by creating shade over the path with trees forming a natural canopy. The unique green design will also contribute towards improving the environment and the air quality.

2. Peace and serenity at the entrance

A flower bed running along the boundary wall, a stone pathway in the middle and a water lily pond on the other side – this welcoming entrance walkway sets a peaceful and serene ambience.

3. A bold statement with bright colour

Make an impact at the entrance of the home with a bright colour on the front door. Bring a slice of Santorini to the house with this beautiful entrance door that guarantees to draw the attention of every passerby.

A casual and cosy seating area at the entrance is a welcome change from what one expects as seating space is usually restricted to the inside of the home. This unique idea will make the family and friends feel welcome even before they enter the house.

5. Inventiveness at the entrance

Showcase some unique style right in the entranceway by relying on the warmth of wood to create a covered canopy on the ceiling. Create a contrast using stone cladding for the façade wall and polishing tiles for the floor. Highlight it with artistic lighting to give the guests a warm welcome.

6. Rustic and minimal simplicity at the entrance

Minimalism is modern and elegant! Create a unique entrance by decorating it with just the bare minimum. Let art and creativity speak for itself. A Worli art panel on the door and a rustic wood wall art to frame the homeowners’ names has understated style and elegance.

7. Functional and practical space at the entrance

In modern homes, where every inch comes at a premium, it’s challenging to design and decorate the entrance hallway to make it useful without compromising on the beauty of the space. Take a cue from here and build a shoe cabinet with a bench seat and a stylish storage cupboard right at the entrance.   

8. Grand décor at the entrance

An intricate design created by the mosaic tiles on the wall, the statue of Ganesha with traditional brass lamps on both sides and floral motifs on the wall panel make this entrance stunning. It has ample ethnic charm that retains an element of the traditional Indian welcome but also has a generous touch of modernity that elevates the overall look.
