Do you have a petite home with a modern detail? Well, then opt for neutral grey, charcoal and black for a sophisticated touch. It may not be that eye-catching, but there's something attractive about this entrance.

2. Colonial

Old fashioned charm is great for a home with a colonial design. This dark arched wooden door is absolutely fascinating.

3. Lighting

Don't forget about vibrant illumination for your exterior too.

4. Open

An open home allows for views of the landscape and garden, allowing for the home to be comfortable during summer with a fresh breeze and sunshine enhancing the space.

5. Elegant

Glass doors are great for an elegant, luxurious house. Catch a glimpse of the gorgeous detail of the interior or just stand in amazement to admire the dramatic effect as you enter.

6. Welcoming

A garden is awesome for a brilliant, cosy and inviting home entrance. Go for plants that are easy to maintain and don't forget a pretty pathway to lead the way to your front door.

7. Rustic

Be daring and different with this Asian inspired rustic front entrance. Wood, greenery and even lighting enhances an enchanting atmosphere.

8. Spacious

A spacious home requires splendid design and this sensational and shiny entrance is extravagant enough for a modern homeowner.

9. Trendy

Our final entrance is trendy, tasteful enough to stand the test of time. Opt for a home that won't date in a year or two, you can't go wrong with neutral shades and natural materials. You may want to have a look at DIY: 8 garages you can build yourself while you're at it.
