Your entryway is the first impression visitors have of your home, and it should not only reflect your personality, but set the stage for the rest of your home. It affects your curb appeal from the exterior, and is one of the most important pass through spaces in your house. And lets face it, its probably low on your list of rooms to makeover, right? Yep, most pass through spaces are. But just because you don’t dine in your entry, or watch Downton reruns, or sleep there doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve your attention. After all, why should a visitor even wonder about the rest of your home, if the entry is outdated and drab? No worries, we found 10 chic & stylish entryway makeovers that will amp up the curb appeal and polish that interior space!
