We all know that plant/flowered filled pots, a welcoming entry mat and stand out address numbers are great basics in accessorizing your front entry. Let's take it further with one or two items that make you the best on the block.
Why not hang an art piece in your entry? Wrought iron plaques can be hung within the alcove/portico or allowed to weather naturally on an exposed wall.
Steps or a front porch can be the perfect spot for a large lantern. Keep scale and space in mind if considering this addition. One small lantern will be lost on a large porch. Also, will a lantern block access to your front door?
Finally, is it time to ditch your doorbell? A simple, classic doorbell can mirror the finishes chosen in your lighting, address numbers and door hardware. Upgrade your entry with $10-15, minimal time, and some simple wiring. Look no further than Restoration Hardware for a great selection.
With any accessorizing, be sure to keep it crisp and clutter-free. Your front entry should represent your home and invite guests, not become an obstacle course or visually distracting.
