Making an Entrance
An old adage frequently stated is "First Impressions happen only once". Though this is normally applied to people meeting for the 1st time and how each perceives the other person. Yet, your home also provides a 1st Impression to every one that comes to knock on your door and perhaps only makes it as far as the foyer.
Never thought about it? Perhaps you should. Would you want your home to look more like a place to avoid or a welcoming home?
Your foyer starts at the front door! I really like this HomeByDesign article as it lays out the means to make a good opening statement when someone enters your home
