Whether you are moving into a brand new home or remodeling your present one, one of the most important aspects of your decorating will be the entryway to your home. Here are some ideas that will make it beautiful and unique.
The Walkway - Consider brick, flagstone or concrete for the walkway leading up to your front door. If you select concrete, it can be made to look very special with faux painting. Accomplished artists can give concrete the look of any materials already listed, or the look of wood, Italian marble, or even Mexican tile. Besides being beautiful, these treatments are all very easy to care for. All you have to do is spray them with your garden hose. In addition, they will last for many years. In fact, they acquire more beauty with the passage of time.
The Flooring - Whether you have selected a large wrap-around porch or a small outside entryway, consider using a contrasting material for the flooring. For example, if you selected tile for your walkway, consider flagstone for the entryway. Selecting a distinctive mat to place in front of the main entrance is not only a beautiful touch, but it is practical, too.
The Front Door - Consider selecting a custom door for your main entryway. Even though you might spend a bit more money on a custom door, it will be unique and built to last.
Have fun planning the entryway to your home.
Hi, I'm Caroline. Welding has always been really fascinating to me. One day, when I was at work in my office, we had a leaky pipe in the ceiling. After calling a plumber, he called a welder who came to repair the large, open pipe. As we were all sitting there trying to work, the welder just came in and started repairing the pipe! I had never worked on a construction site before, and I probably never will. But I started thinking about what it would actually be like to work on a construction site, which led to me exploring construction themes and writing this blog!
