The entry to your home is the first thing that your guests see, so it’s pretty important that it looks good if you want them to appreciate your eye for decor and if you want to give your home that all-important curb appeal.

Luckily, it’s pretty easy to improve the entryway to your home. Here are a few really simple ideas that will get the job done:

Create a Pathway 

If you want to guide your guests to your front door and guide their eye to your entranceway, then you need to create a pretty path. If you don’t already have a proper path, invest in a nice set of paving stones, lay them in a straight line from the beginning of your property to your door, and then make sure you sweep, powerwash and maintain it regularly.

Dress Up Your Door

The front door is the main entrance to your home, so you will obviously want it to look good. So, first of all, if your door is in a state of disrepair, hire someone, like the professionals at to fix it up, or invest in a new one if it is beyond repair. Then, choose a nice bright colour and give it a new lick of paint.

Next, find the most impressive letterbox and door handles that you can find and use them to accessorise your door to the max. Pastel colours are always a winner because they stand out without being too in your face, but if you fancy painting your door neon orange or flamingo pink, don’t hesitate to do it!

Trim Tress and Bushes

It’s nice to have a bit of greenery at the front of the house, but if your trees and bushes have become overgrown, it might be time to call in some professional gardener, like the ones at, to cut them down to size. That way, your entrance will look neat and tidy, and you’ll maximise the amount of light that you get in the front of your house.

A Flourish of Flowers 

When it comes to creating a grand entrance, flowers are pretty much essential, but if you aren’t much of a gardener, doing all of the work it takes to create a beautiful sea of colours out front might be too much to handle. If that’s the case, install hanging baskets, window boxes and flower pots and fill them with hardy flowers that you’ll only have to water occasionally.

Give it Some Personality

Most people’s entryways are pretty boring if we’re honest, so anything you can do to add personality will really make your front garden/ porch area pop. One really good idea is to line your steps with Moroccan tiles instead of the usual boring stone steps, another is to paint your house an interesting colour instead of the usual white or cream, but the sky is the limit. Do what feels right!

Creating an entryway that makes its presence known, as you can see, is much easier than you might think. The above ideas, combined with your own creative flourishes will help you to create the kind of curb appeal that most people can only dream about.
