It’s an undeniable fact that the front of one’s home is the most important feature when attempting to make a good first impression or a statement. When it comes to dwelling design, there are good entrances, and then there are bad. A good entrance is neat and tidy and invites in guests or visitors, while a bad entrance is unwelcoming, unattractive, messy and generally unappealing. 

The entrance often gives a good impression of what lies behind the façade; a preamble to the main event inside. Your entrance should be unique, stylish and boost your curb appeal. You can achieve the ultimate entrance using a range of different building materials, strong architectural lines and a considered approach or plan.
