You’ll draw people to your front door with exceptional curb appeal. But it’s just as important to create an inviting entryway to draw people further into your home. Use these entryway décor tips to welcome guests to your new home in Greenville TX.
We suggest sticking with light colors when choosing a color scheme for your entryway. Though there’s a plethora of color options to pick from, light colors will establish a cozy environment for your guests to step into. Or opt for a sophisticated entryway by using striped wallpaper. Area rugs or floor runners are a great way to warm up the entryway and add a beautifully colored and textured element to the area. Give your entryway some of your personality by decorating the walls with framed quote décor that represent you and include a gallery wall of pictures.
Don’t forget to tablescape the cabinet, chest or table you place here. Choose decorative pieces like an hourglass, potpourri filled glass jars, candle stands, plants, birdcage, mirrors or a floral arrangement to pick up the rooms color pattern and add fragrance to the room. Switch it up occasionally with fabulous holiday or seasonal centerpieces. Complement this look with an upholstered chair and floor plant.
No space is complete without lighting. Build ambiance with accent lamps atop a cabinet or table. For a modern feel go with wall scones that’ll double as wall art. If you’d like to make a bold statement in your entryway select a chandelier or choose foyer pendants as an alternative to produce a dramatic focal point.
A storage bench is an ideal seating option for your entry way. It works well for the space, offers a place for guest to sit, provides extra storage and a landing spot for hats, purses, coats and other belongings. Complete the look with a floor lamp, photos on both sides and artwork and seasonal flowers adorned on the mantle. You can also create the look of a built-in entry area of your Greenville TX new home by painting the wall, bench and shelf the same color.
The entryway offers the first impression guests will have of your home’s interior. Consult our creative consultants for more ideas to construct an inviting entryway. Contact Jim West at 214-229-3573 to learn more about the 4 available homes in Gabe Estates and 3 available homes in The Cedars.
