Solid wooden doors with a pattern that is reminiscent of a palace in India is a perfect option for the well-travelled homeowner. Bring a few one of the kind pieces back home with you and incorporate them into your decor.

2. Stairway story

If the entrance to your home happens to be at the top of a staircase, then you'll still have to pretty it up with a sleek and stylish balustrade and a coat of paint.

3. Cool, calming and contemporary

Grey walls and greenery makes this modern entrance the fitting choice for a minimalist home, the durable gates offer extra security, while the pathway ensures that the grass will remain perfectly intact.

4. Sunlit style

An entrance drenched in sunshine is great at any time of the year, so include a stylish skylight for a fantastic architecture.

5. Light the way

It's vital to think about the best illumination for your entrance, a pathway is great to keep your guests away of any obstructions, especially during dusk.

6. Colourful choice

Red doors may be the pop of colour your home needs to make it interesting and eye-catching.

7. Wooden detail

A wooden door decorated in gorgeous geometric detail will make any home an awesome sight from the street.

8. Tall trees

If an island vibe is what you're looking for, then opt for tall palm trees to line your large entrance.

9. Glossy glass

It may not be the ideal choice if you have a busy household with many kids, but a glass staircase is absolutely breathtaking.

10. Rustic

Include a rustic wooden chair at the entrance to enhance that retro Mediterranean decor in your home. 

11. Mirror and monochrome

A mirror is an essential decor piece for your entrance, so there's no excuse to keep your hair and makeup in check.

12. Exposed brick

Don't plaster over those brick walls, instead use them as a designer feature for your decor.
