Entryway Success - How to make a lasting impression

If home is where the heart is, the entryway is the main artery. It waves goodbye to you as you leave in the morning and greets you when you come home every evening. The entrance to your home should be welcoming, a reflection of you and your family. Just like families, entryways come in all shapes and sizes, so a one size fits all approach definitely does not apply and a personal touch is most certainly recommended.

For those with a long narrow hallway, adequate lighting is important. It will help to guide guests to where they are going and welcome them to your home. A beautiful way to achieve this is by perfectly placing downlights or step lights to illuminate the space, highlighting artworks and creating washes of light. For a more traditional look, wall lights placed down the hallway will achieve the same goal. In larger open spaces, statement pendants will wow you and your guests every time. Another thing to remember is having well placed switches so you are only ever momentarily fumbling around in the dark (unless it’s the right kind of fumbling, in which case, as you were).

We would love to help your entryway make a perfect first impression, and a lasting one.
