Your Entryway Sets the Stage

From the outside, curb appeal is everything. Choose a stylish door and door color. Energy efficiency is top consideration these days. Consider replacing your front door with an “energy-star” rated door and you may be eligible for tax credits in addition to saving on energy bills.

Since an entry is the “opening act” for the rest of your home, the door should be stylish and inviting.

Once you step inside, the entryway is an extension of your main decor theme. Choose colors that blend well with the rest of your home’s decor and complement the flooring—whether it is hardwood, tile or vinyl. Adding a decorative rug that works with the wall colors, softens the flooring and pulls colors from the room’s accessories.
