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!

And look a little more ceremonial.

3. We love a good doormat here in Blighty
