How Does Your House Say Hello? Curb Appeal and Entryway Design for Your Whole Home Remodel
First impressions matter as much for your whole home remodel as they do in other areas of life. The entry is the first place where visitors will get a sense of the aesthetics and craftsmanship of your home. Here are some ideas for saying “hello!” with style in your whole home remodel:
The entry design should unify with the design throughout your home. An ultra-modern entry to a traditional home would be visually jarring and vise versa. Working with a professional team of designers, you can explore ways to set the tone for the design of your home at the front door. The doorway to this home blending mid-century and modern themes (shown above) hints at the imaginative design to be found within.
At the entry to your home you are welcoming visitors into your most personal space. Imbue the space with meaning by weaving your personality into the design. For this contemporary home in La Jolla Shores, the custom door was created with a window made from sea glass the clients collected on the nearby beach. Favorite pieces of art adorn the space in glowing niches.
When planning your entry, consider the entire impression including the landscaping leading to your front door. In our San Diego climate we are fortunate to live with greenery year round. Enliven the welcoming nature of your home with carefully planned landscaping for colorful appeal like the coastal garden shown below.
The most essential aspect of the entryway for your whole home remodel is that it expresses your own unique style and point of view. Transforming your home during a whole home remodel creates the ideal opportunity for considering how your home makes its first impression!
