The entryway of the home demonstrates the story of the people living in it. Now that people are more aware, they not only focus on decorating the house but also its entryway. So, here are some inspirations and ideas for exterior designs of house entrances that are not only budget-friendly but modern and chic at the same time.

  • Choose your theme- Choosing the theme on which you want your house is very important. Like some would go for a bohemian theme while others might choose a royal- classy vibe or a chic vibe. 

  • Colour palette- Choosing a definite color palette will help you set all your furniture and decorative pieces according to it. You might choose pastels or go all out with some bold, vibrant colors. 

  • Mirror: the illusion of space- While you're dicey about the pieces that you might use at the entrance, mirrors are a great way to create the illusion of space. It can also act as a bonus to check and fix yourself. 

  • Play with lighting- There is nothing better than a well-lit room. Try to bring modern lightings to the room which will not only look expensive but at the same time will conserve energy. 

  • Super storage- You might not realize it but your entryway could actually have a lot of space for you if you can invest in good furniture pieces. Using a chest of drawers or cabinets with mirrors can help with dumping your keys, umbrella, and masks. Keep a sanitizer handy at the entryway. 

  • Mesmerizing metallic- A few metallic pieces at the entryway like golden or silver flower pots, mirrors with metallic borders or metallic antiques will add elegance.

  • Ditch the brown- Ditch the conventional brown color for your front door and try being innovative. Choose fresh colors for your door or go for a sun mica. 

  • Distant the dustbin- There’s a common practice of people keeping the dustbins near the door which might be easier to dump but looks quite odd for the visitors as the dustbin would be the first to welcome them to your home. Also, they would remember you for the odor of your dustbin because that's the first thing they would smell while stepping into your home. 

  • Signature smell- While talking about odors, use scented candles that would act even as a showpiece, and welcome the guest with a fresh fragrance. You can use room fresheners as an alternative. The main idea is to make sure a long-lasting scent in the home. 

  • Textures- While choosing the wallpaper, don't go all plain but rather choose textures or patterns or stone-like finish which gives an edge to the room. 

  • Showstopper- Try to keep a statement decorative piece which would catch the attention of the visitor. you could keep an abstract painting or for a bibliophilic his/her display of favorite books or an antique or even a collection of your family pictures. It could be anything but unique and at the same time should describe your personality.
