So what makes for an impressive entry? Tile is a winner and you can use either marble, granite, synthetic, or ceramic. The type of tile you use isn’t important as they all do a good job of making a great first impression. If you have a light fixture there, replace it if your current one is dull, outdated, and unimpressive. A nice, bright light is best.
Add a few nice plants. Trees are best and can be real or silk, although real trees are preferable. Put down a nice, neutral area over part of the tile. Add a piece of furniture to the area if there is room. Telephone tables, a bench with storage for boots and hats, a chest of drawers, or a buffet table are examples of what you can put in your entry way. If the area needs to be painted, consider using any shade of yellow that is complimentary to the rest of the house. Yellow works well with most color themes and shows an initial impression of bright and light, which are great selling points.
