The entrance to the home is where buyers often form some of their first impressions of the interior of the home.
However, too often, “the entryway gets neglected because it isn’t necessary in the same way that a living room sofa is,” Larina Kase, an interior designer and home stager in the Philadelphia area, told realtor.com®. “But it’s actually one of the simplest and least expensive areas to decorate to get the biggest impact.”
That said, many entryways suffer from overcrowded coat racks and oversized furniture that is making the area feel less appealing and less spacious, designers say.
Here are a few simple things you can try to spice up the home’s entryway:
Add a mirror:“Every entryway needs a spectacular mirror, especially in small spaces,” says Jack Menashe of Menashe Design in New York. “It makes them optically larger and adds depth. Plus, who doesn’t want to check themselves out before they leave the house?”
Light it up:Add a small lamp on a table for a welcoming glow.
Fresh flowers:Try an orchid, potted plant, or vase of cut blooms to add a touch of nature and color.
A bench:If there’s space in the entryway, have a place to sit down and that ideally has some storage underneath it too. Add a colorful pillow to brighten up the space too.

"Rebecca changed our lives and our thoughts re: realtors in general. They were very, very knowledgeable and took their time too explain any questions or concerns that we had as a family or individually. The kallhoff team was very pleasant and very patient with us and made herself available to our schedule, she showed us more homes in one day than our previous realtor did in 2 months. She literally took the time too make sure all our questions were answered or addressed. She would email us a full report at the end of our day, with a full recap of all the homes we saw so we could make a wise decision. Even when we would get discouraged, Michelle would always make us feel better to find the house that was meant to be for us! Once we found our dream home, Rebecca joined our team and sold our house in less 2 weeks. That in itself was an amazing job!! She worked day and night to get our home sold! Took in consideration every concern we had. Her genuine interest in helping our family with our move was unbelievable, even though I worked nights, Rebecca made sure we had the necessary help to make our move as smooth as possible. Even helped out more than we expected. Rebecca made us feel as we were part of their family. There was no impossible task for her and her team. They worked hard to meet our deadlines and close on time, especially on our difficult schedule. Kudos to your team! You guys made our whole experience so easy. We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND and Rebecca Kallhoff Team to anyone as they did an awesome job! We do not have enough words to express our gratitude for their hard work. We were always kept up to date with the showings of our home and they were always concerned on keeping us informed on our closing. If we could give them 10+ stars each we would. Thank you!!!"
