“Make an Entrance”!

To make your house stand out from the crowd, try some of the following tips to really “make an entrance”!


A great way to greet guests and useful too! The message could read, “happy birthday” or “party in the garden” or “no milk today, thanks!”
Write a permanent message, “hello”, “welcome”, “house number” or even paint a picture!
Don’t be boring with your door furniture, use unusual fittings, search online or try going vintage. Even local DIY shops have a great range.
Create a cameo with a seat, planters and accessories like the watering can. Make sure the colours coordinate.
Why use boring lights? Make a statement with a chandelier or something unexpected.
Paint your door an eye catching colour, this yellow really “pops” in the white surround.
Add an unusual surround like these beautiful tiles.
Have fun with your numbers, but make sure you can read them!
