I’ve begun to feel like we might not be giving the entryway enough credit. When you think about it, your entryway is like the first interview—since it’s the first impression you make, it’s important to dress up and establish some basic organization, planning, and personality all in one shebang. The important aspects of the first encounter with a new person can be applied to this smaller room in the front or back of our home. In addition to looks and organization, our entryway is also responsible for making a guest feel comfortable from the very beginning of their visit.
It doesn’t always take a huge revamp or a lot of money to improve your entryway.
Remember, life is about the journey, not the destination. Stop treating your entryway like a hallway and infuse it with some fun and life!
