What do you want your front entrance experience to be or say about your when guests come to visit? Your entrance tells those visiting a lot about you. Some like a particular kind of door or door color, some welcome their guests with welcome mats, some say a hen is in the house with a wreath on the door, at least that is what a male friend of mine said to me once. It was kind of funny and sweet! Some use potters and planters to say hello to those visiting with blooms or green bushes to give a softer look to a front entrance. Some even have sitting areas for their guests or maybe a package needs to be dropped off and a bench is a good place to leave it. Whatever you style, let your entrance way make a grand impression, for it will be the first impression you give your visitors. Some may even like a king’s entrance.
