Has the entry area of your house been empty because you have concentrated on filling the other rooms? Now that you are ready to decorate the entry room, do you have a plan in mind? If you're looking for some inspiration, from selecting a replacement door to choosing furniture pieces, here are some ideas that might help you.
Start With The Door
Right when you moved into your house, did you know that the time would come that you would replace the existing door? Maybe it is an inexpensive, super plain door that doesn't add any interest to your house, either on the outside or on the inside. Aren't you glad that replacing doors is not that big a deal?
Consider the kind of front door you want. For example, maybe you have been attracted to brick red or royal blue doors as you have driven in lovely neighborhoods. Or, maybe you have always wanted a front door that has beveled glass as the focal point. Does the space allow you to have French doors installed? That would be a beautiful addition to your entryway.
If you have no idea at all of what kind of replacement door you want to select, don't fret. The place where you buy the door will have multiple pictures of doors. And, the salesperson will have the training and the experience to help you select one that will complement the facade of your house.
No matter the color or the style of your front door, consider how you will access your house. Consider having a code that only your family and trusted friends will have. That means no lost keys. And, it also means you won't have to hide a spare key, which can be dangerous.
The Entry Way Furniture
The amount of space you have in the entryway will determine how you'll decorate that area, of course. For example, if you have limited space, one slim table with one small chair might be the only things you can add. That can still be beautiful, though. Enhance the space with a beautiful painting above the table and with things like a floral arrangement or candelabra on top of the table.
If you have ample space, consider selecting matching hall tables that can face each other from across the hall. Choose a high-backed chair to place on either end of the tables, and decorate the tables with things that complement the hallway. For example, tall lamps on both tables won't just be attractive, they will also add light during the evening hours.
