Your entrance says a lot about you. It is the first thing that the eye should see when viewing a property.
Visitors should not have to guess where the entrance is or how to find it! It should be obvious.
Plants and paving should compliment the architecture of the house and be pleasing to the eye.
Entrance plantings should be bright enough or interesting enough to catch the eye. DO use bright colors to catch the eye!
If the entrance is not a front entrance, than plants and hardscape should reinforce the message “enter here” or “come this way.”
The journey from street to front door is experiential. There should be a nice progression of space or spaces leading to an entrance that is pleasing to experience.
Plants and paving should always work together to lead the way to the entry.
Your entrance is often one of the first things your visitors will see of your house. What does yours say about you? Is your entrance appealing and welcoming? Or not?
This week, I’m hooked on well-designed entrances! To see what others are hooked on, visit Hooked on Houses. Have a great weekend!
