When you have a home that you love you want to make sure that as your guests arrive they have a wonderful first impression. The first impression is based on the walk up to the house but more importantly what they see in the entryway. This is an area of the house that is sometimes overlooked when choosing to have an area remodeled and renovated. You want to make sure you give the entry of your home attention. When you make some changes to the entry it can make a huge impact on the guests that come to visit. There are some tips on what you can do to increase the look of your entry way. Future Vision Remodeling outlines how to create a bold and memorable entryway.
The first thing you want to make a change to is the start of the entry point and that is the front doors. Many homes are created around a single door even though there is space to add a set of French doors. If you have the space to recreate the doors it is a good idea to know what options are best for you. A set of tall French doors is a great addition to any home. If you only have space for a single door you want to use an oversized door to give a grander look to the entry. Once you know what size door you are going to have on the house you can then determine what style is best for your home. You can use glass inserts that are etched, clear, frosted or even stained. The door should have hardware that shows off the feel of what they will see in the house. You can choose sleek finishes, standard or more ornate hardware.
Entryway Tile Flooring with a Mosaic
One of the things that you want to think about is the way that the floors greet your guests. The flooring that you choose should make a statement and the best way to do that is to use a natural stone floor that has a beautiful mosaic that can be placed at the entry point and give that space its own identity. The mosaic can be very defined and bold or can be the same shade of the flooring with some fun shapes and patterns.
Dramatic Foyer Staircase
Most homes have a set of stairs that often originate in the main entry of the home. The stairs have steps as well as banisters that can make the entry as bold and grand as you want. The stairs can be re-worked so that they are wider or changed into a spiral or double staircase. You want to make sure you look at the options you have when reworking your stairs and choose the right materials as well as colors to make the most out of the space.
