A mirror at the entrance will keep you looking great as you get ready to leave home. Touch up your make-up, fix your hair or make sure your shirt is tucked in. Add some great lighting and your decor is good to go.

2. Stairs

Living in a double storey house or duplex means you have to ensure your stairs are trendy too. Keep it simple with stairs that work well in your entrance, wooden stairs with wooden flooring is an essential rule of thumb.

3. Rug

4. Entrance storage

You can't go wrong with a side table for storing your keys, hats, umbrellas and even raincoats during winter.

5. Artistry

Make your entrance interesting with an awesome work of art.

6. Textured walls

Go for textured walls at the entrance and include a vibrant colourful front door for a home filled with quirky charm.

7. Warm and welcoming

The lighting of this entrance is definitely warm, welcoming and attractive. There's no better way to surprise your guests with your wonderful taste and friendly environment.

8. Cute yet symmetrical

So the entrance may be petite, but that doesn't mean you should forget the simple aesthetics of neutral colours and symmetry.

9. Modern space

The final home we visit is spacious, modern and attractive. Create a fantastic ambiance with a fountain, while the colour scheme is awesome for a home with a view of the ocean. Have a look at How to do your own laminate flooring
