​7 mistakes to avoid when decorating your entrance

Any home’s entrance is a special space, as it (along with your front garden and exterior façade) is one of the main elements that help to portray a first impression of your home. So, it just makes sense that you need to be quite careful when it comes to hanging up artwork, adding lighting fixtures, and choosing a colour scheme for your entrance/hallway, right?

With that in mind, let’s take into account 7 of the most common decorating errors encountered by nearly all homeowners…

1. Low illumination – ensure that you invest in proper lighting for a bright and cheery welcoming space.

2. Too dark colours – rather opt for soft, neutral tones to help make your entryway more spacious and inviting.

3. Large furniture pieces – entryways are generally small, so don’t clutter it with chunky pieces that take up valuable legroom.

4. Poor furniture layout – ensure your entryway has adequate legroom for movement and that all furniture are functional pieces in their correct places.

5. An ugly door – it will just drag down the rest of your entryway’s style.

6. A lack of furniture – if your entryway looks like you’ve been robbed, you’d better add in some more pieces!

7. No fresh plants – is there any better way to introduce a touch of natural freshness into your home’s first indoor space?
