The way your home entrance looks should be given some real thought. Not only is it the first impression that your house makes on guests, it also sets the tone for how your interior probably looks. 

Architects and gardening professionals alike know the importance of considering your home entrance a little more carefully. Therefore, we thought it might be fun to take a look at some fantastic modern spaces, in order to see what elements you could transplant to your own home and give it a contemporary makeover.

From gorgeous front gardens to eye-catching doors, we've found some great ideas, so let's get right to them!

1. Make the most of an uneven surface

By adding some really beautiful steps for a dramatic entrance.

2. You don't need a castle to enjoy a moat-like entrance

Just don't drop your keys!

3. Large house numbers are cutting edge chic

And adding beautiful outdoor lighting as well? That's the cherry on the cake!

4. A wooden walkway

Will give your entrance some modern style in the blink of an eye.

5. A custom front door

Is one of the most impactful ways to set your entrance apart from everyone else's.

6. A perfectly lit pathway

Is the ultimate modern touch. Solar lights up the standard even higher!

7. Symmetrical potted plants

Give your home entrance some real character and authority. Plus, it's a great way to welcome palms without killing them with the UK climate.

8. Nobody ever said that ponds have to be kept in the back garden
