Your home's entrance is the very first aspect of décor that guests see when they visit, which is why it's so important to ensure that this space is interesting and inviting. These fantastic, simple, ideas will help you pretty-up your home entrance, and with 15 décor tips at hand, we’re sure you'll find an option that appeals! From modern, rustic, elegant to luxurious, we have something for every taste. A chic and more welcoming entrance is achievable—let’s find out how!

1. Detailed effect

Although this main entrance has a minimalist persona, it is also creative and attractive. The addition of a clay pot is interesting, and with the white gravel surroundings, the effect is elegant.

2. Lead the way

This board pathway is a charming choice for any modern home. And with the lovely illumination and striking plant life, the entrance is just wonderful.

3. Rich wood with a simple doormat

Going for a doormat at the entrance creates a dual role for décor. It ensures that your floors remain clean, while adding a welcoming ambiance as well.

4. Potted plants

Adding pot plants to the entrance is a great way to ensure a fresh and vibrant aesthetic. This is an especially elegant feature for white or plain exteriors.

5. Water, water everywhere

There’s something so comforting about the sound of running water… So go for a moat-like appearance at your entrance, and you’ll have a home with palatial personality.

6. Sculptured

If you like statement-making detail and artwork, then a sculpture at the entrance is a great idea. Your guests will be left wondering about the artistic appeal that awaits inside, too.

7. Simple and tidy
