Your entrance says a lot about you and your home. Think of it in terms of being the first impression that your house will ever make and, as we all know, you can't ever change that so it's vital you get it right!

We've found some easy, inexpensive landscape architect-inspired ways you can give your entrance a little more pizzazz so, if you're ready to learn how to make your home look incredible as soon as guests hit your hallway, read on…

1. Keep it simple by adding just enough detail

A pretty plant pot, a clear house number and some elegant shingle will do the trick!

2. For some drama, a path will naturally draw people towards your front door

And look a little more ceremonial.

3. We love a good doormat here in Blighty

And if you choose well, it's all you need.

4. A cacophony of greenery really will make your entrance feel special

If you have a green thumb, put it to good use.

Just don't drop your keys in there!

6. Some modern art sculptures will bring your entrance to life

Whilst also demonstrating your fabulous taste!

7. Weed your flagstones and get everything just so

A perfectly maintained doorstep is the key to a positive first impression.

8. Natural wood has such a draw

You can't go wrong having some in your entrance, it's so welcoming.

9. A creative touch is nothing to shy away from

Especially when it comes to standing out in a crowd. Look at that mosaic door surround!

10. Oversized, statement ceramics

Will make a beautiful impression on your entrance.
