The entry to your house doesn’t start at your door, it starts at the beginning of your property. From the moment someone enters your yard or it’s within sight of your property, they will start creating an opinion of you and your family. The way your garden or yard looks, your front door, the exterior of your house would be creating the first impression on anyone approaching your house. Once you open that door that first look inside your house will continue the process.

We all know how important first impressions are, how difficult it’s to change a bad first impression and how difficult it’s to create a good first one. And this article is all about helping you with that first impression. From how to create a welcoming feeling from the moment someone enters your garden to painting your front door and decorating your entrance, it’s all about the best tips and ideas to help you with the smallest but actually one of the most important rooms in your house.

Being one of the smallest rooms in the house and being the first one we go into, it’s the one that most easily will look untidy. We enter our house and the first thing we do is dropping everything: coats, bags, umbrellas, mail, shoes, and so on. So if you don’t want things to get completely out of control and keep everything within reach when you are leaving next time what you need is to plan your entry with everything that will help you to keep the place tidy. Hooks for your coats and bags, shoe storage, seating to help you when you are getting your shoes on, a place for mail and whatever might be of help to the little ones in your house, those are only a few of things you will need to think about when planning your entrance.
