When you’re building a new home usually a lot of time and consideration is spent in planning the areas of the home that you most use, the kitchen and living areas, bathrooms and master suite understandably get the most attention. The entry of your home however is the very first thing that visitors see, in fact it’s all that many people such as couriers and delivery drivers will see, so you should consider what sort of impression the entry to your home gives about who you are and the rest of the home.
Here are some great ways to create a grand entrance and make a fabulous first impression:

Perhaps more frequently seen in grand estate type properties, the covered portico entry is bound to impress guests – appearing more like the entry to a luxury boutique hotel than a private home.
