It is amazing to see one of my colleagues home design when I visited her for a special evening dinner after work. The house is so beautiful that I immediately asked her what is the secret. She told me some of the helpful tips on how she designed everything from outside to inside. Let me share all the ideas here so the readers will have a great idea when you plan to design your own home.
The entrance of the house is the most important part as it has the ability to impress a person. The entrance should always be decorated in the best way as it is the threshold of the place where we relax and since the guests enter from there we should put extra effort in thinking of striking ways to make the entrance look better and elegant. The front door is believed to usher in lots of good energies because of which we must never keep anything that backfires the positive energy and does not let it enter the house.
Check out these points to decorate the entrance:
- Light furniture and inclusion of flowers
The beginning of the house can have a tea table like furniture which can be adorned with greens or we can arrange beautiful flowers at home to adorn the place. This is a place where we can keep some green and unusual plants that do not need much sunlight to grow. If we don’t find such plants locally we can always contact an online florist to help us get it. The main attention, however, must be on the piece of furniture which enhances the space and makes the entrance look regal and elegant.
- Rugs and mirrors
We must always put a rug in front of the front door so that once we enter the house wearing the shows that we have worn on the road, there are provisions to wipe the dirt and mud. We must use a rug that in turn is easy to clean. Mirrors, on the other hand, create an illusion and make our home spacious by reflecting light and making the house loom bigger in area. It is also ideal for the people who stay at home especially the women to have that one last look into the mirror before they go out of the house.
- Wise storage facilities
This is a project that can be undertaken by one’s own hands and some storage facility can be incorporated into the house. We can put hooks on the wall so that it is easy to hang umbrellas, overcoats, plastic bags or even dirty shoes to save more space and make use of all the area that is available by adding a personal touch. This should be done just near the entrance so that the shoes are hung immediately near and we don’t have to carry it all over the house.
- Personalised photo corner
We can hang the photo of our family members in the walls which are just near the entrance so that the place is used wisely. Also, if there are nice and heart-warming pictures to welcome us once we reach the entrance of our homes. We can also try changing a very inspiring quotation instead of a photo which is a personal favorite of the entire family so that when we leave or enter the house we can read it and be motivated to give it our best.
- A seating arrangement with lights at the top
We must always have a small seating arrangement near the entrance if our houses not only to create an elegant style statement but also so that when we wear a sneaker or other elaborate shoes, we can wear them by sitting there and avoid any other unnecessary adventure. Also, the proper light arrangement at the entrance is a must so that it brightens the area near and helps people have a nice look around by creating a cozy and homely affair.
