How to Update Your Tired-Looking Entryway

The entrance to your home can set the tone for the rest of your property. Oftentimes, one only needs to upgrade their entrance to make the rest of their house look fresh and modern. Is your entry or foyer tired or in need of an update? Here are some examples of how to transform the front of your property into an inviting entrance, courtesy of Window Mart.

Add a Timber-Frame Porch

If you want to make a bold statement, consider adding a timber-frame over your entranceway. Timber frames offer the perfect combination of modern and rustic, with beautifully stained timber beams that add a cottage-chic touch. Timber frame porches match all building materials, so whether you have stone, vinyl, brick, or log, your home will be the envy of the neighbourhood.

Replace Lighting

Lighting is one of those features that can make the rest of the space look instantly outdated. If you have your wiring already set up for outdoor lighting, replacing those old sconces or pendant lights with something brand new, vibrant, and show-worthy won’t be too expensive.

Give Your Flagstones a Little TLC

If your entranceway is looking a little rough around the edges, your flagstones may be to blame. If they’re overgrown with grass and weeds, crumbling into dust, or haven’t been washed in years, they may be responsible for your home’s sorry-looking state. Investigate the major issues with your flagstones, as you may only need to spend an afternoon power washing the build-up of dirt and grime.

Add Décor

A couple of pumpkins, a pair of rocking chairs, oversized planters overflowing with a dramatic display of flowers—there is much to be said about adding a few aesthetic touches to your front entrance. If you don’t have the budget to replace your flagstones or add a timber door, you can easily dress your entrance to give it more of an inviting look.
