How to style your entranceway (yes, it’s important!)
When you think of property styling, you probably think about plush bedding, plump cushions and luxe lounges.
But the art of successful styling extends far beyond the big-ticket pieces you choose to place in your home. Styling is all about the detail (something we love here at BOWERBIRD!) – and every nook, cranny and corner needs to be tended to. And this includes your entranceway.
If you think about it, the first thing your potential buyers are going to see when they walk into your property is your entranceway and as we all know, first impressions count. Here’s how to ensure you’re making the right one…
Select a statement piece of art
Often entranceways are overlooked, but this is one space where, in most homes, there is a lovely big blank wall. Set the tone for your home by selecting a piece of art that speaks to your design aesthetic and complements the rest of the space. Alternatively, hang a beautiful mirror. Mirrors are a great way to reflect natural light – and as a bonus, they’re functional too, allowing you to give yourself a quick once over before heading out the door.
Update your light fixtures
There’s nothing worse than entering a home that feels dark and dull from the outset. You want your home to feel light, bright and airy – so take a look at your light fixtures and ensure they’re shining a light on your beautiful home. Updating your light fixtures is also a fairly simple and affordable way to give your home a refresh if you can’t afford a full reno.
Lay a rug
We often speak about rugs being the perfect way to add warmth to a home, so set the tone early by popping a beautiful rug in your entranceway. Obviously, it depends on the size of your space as to the dimensions of the rug you choose, but if your entry leads onto a long hallway with hardwood floors, for example, a long runner-style rug could be the perfect finishing touch.
