Your entryway is the first thing you see when you walk into a house. But when it comes to interior design, the entryway is often an afterthought.
But if you want to make your entryway feel more purposeful, it does not have to be a huge undertaking; you can transform the space—even if you only have a few minutes.
A recent article from realtor.com outlined quick and easy ways to upgrade your entryway, including:
If you have five minutes, do a quick clean. If you only have a few minutes to spruce up your entryway, focus on cleaning—starting with your entryway’s exterior. Shake out your welcome mat, dust off the porch light, and give your doorknob a quick polish. On the interior, clean up any clutter (like scattered shoes) to give the space a more organized, streamlined feel.
If you have an hour, switch up your lighting. A new light fixture can completely change the look and feel of your entryway—and can typically be installed in about an hour.
If you have three hours, add an accent wall. A well-placed accent wall can add visual interest to a space—particularly to a smaller space, like an entryway. If you have a few hours, breathe new life into your entryway by adding some paint, wallpaper, or paneling to one of the walls.
A little TLC can go a long way towards making your entryway appealing to Buyers.
