Many people are looking for ways to pass the time while stuck indoors. One of the most productive things you can do is to make a few minor home renovations. Many people focus on larger projects, but starting small can make a big difference. One of the most overlooked places that can truly transform a home is the entryway. Check out these easy ways to revamp your entryway.
Upgrade your flooring
Investing in new and interesting flooring is a great way to brighten up your home’s entryway. Try laying some patterned porcelain tile on the floor to create a more intricate and inviting environment. Patterned tile allows you the opportunity to pick colors and patterns that accurately reflect the tone of your home and the family personality your household exudes.
Invest in your furniture
Every entryway needs a few staple pieces of furniture to make it functional and inviting. Invest in a place to hang coats. This can mean hanging a few fancy hooks on the wall or buying a coat tree—it all depends on the size and shape of the space you’re working with. Another essential is an entryway bench. Entryway benches provide people with somewhere to sit to put on their shoes or place their bags when they enter your home. This can cut down on clutter throughout the rest of the house.
Make the space feel bigger
Making a space feel bigger, even a small entryway, can create an inviting and open aethetic. Try placing a mirror on a wall right as you walk into the home. Mirrors reflect to create the illusion of extra space. Another way to make your entryway feel larger is by painting it a bright color and then incorporating pops of color and contrast. Contrast creates depth and gives the illusion of extra space.
By setting a goal to revamp your entryway during your days indoors, you can turn a strange situation into a golden opportunity to increase your home’s value and turn a regularly used space into a grand statement of your home’s personality.
