Building a welcoming condo begins with your entryway, which can be difficult if space is limited. It’s where you make your first impression, but it requires some creativity and restraint. Follow these do’s and don’ts from the experts at Foxtrot Realty in Green Valley Ranch, CO, to build the perfect atmosphere for when guests come to visit.
5 Do’s and Don’ts for a Stunning Condo Entryway
1. Bold Colors & Patterns
condoWhile trinkets and décor make a statement, nothing says hello to guests like warm, bold colors. Go for a smooth red or deep blue accented by crème trimmings or stripes to let your home truly make a statement. Avoid harsher tones like bright yellows or oranges, as these can overpower a room.
2. Family Wall
Picture walls are a popular way to create character, and family pictures are perfect for an entryway. They let guests see your family’s personality. Choose different frames, sizes, and shapes to mix and match, and create a balanced overall design that looks organized and unique. When selecting photographs, go for a uniform theme—putting too many unrelated photos together can look tacky and crowd the area.
3. Drop-Off Points
Nothing welcomes guests better than letting them set down their bags, take off their shoes, and hang up their hats and coats. Get creative with long rustic benches, unique wall hooks, and rugs. However, it’s important to make sure this area doesn’t become a clutter zone, so use floor shelves and baskets to keep things organized.
4. Unique & Quirky
A great way to express yourself is with personality pieces. Cute trinkets, statuettes, and talking pieces on shelves or wall tables are a great way to get a conversation going. Think of building a scene or something that generates good vibes and shows who you are. Pick and choose carefully, though. Too many oddities or inappropriate items may deter guests and give the wrong impression.
5. Get Organic
Introducing the elements is a great way to bring life to your condo entryway. Lush, green plants, small water features, and reclaimed wood pieces or wall panels will generate a warm, natural ambiance. Whether your goal is rustic, grandiose, or traditional, earthy features will work in any setting. Select plants and wood carefully, though, as brown leaves, chipped lumber, and darker colors can be unsightly.
