Using accents in an effort to create a warm entryway in your home is very therapeutic, because of the relative ease of doing so. It is after all entirely up to you, and so long as you are satisfied with your choices then you will not have any problems experimenting with accents. However, it is always best to take in from the examples of others, especially if you are not used to making good use of accents. So this article will focus on helping you use accents in order to create a warm and appealing entryway all year long. But what are accents anyway?
The word accent is a flexible word, and in this case it simply means pieces of décor which help make your home a little more hospitable. By making good use of accents, you will be able to make your home more inviting and help make your guests more comfortable when they come over. The best part of this is that more often than not, less is more. Meaning you just have to make good use of certain accents in order to be successful. This also means that anyone with an eye for creativity will be able to do a great job using accents to create a warm entryway, and it is even better if you know what to do! So if you are interested in making your home more amiable for your guests, then read on to the tips and advice written below:
- The contents of a simple vase can make a big difference. Having a vase near the entryway (preferably on a small table) can mean the difference between an inviting home and a cold space. This is mainly because of the contents you can put in. For example, during spring you can add some spring flowers (whether they are fake or not is up to you), or perhaps you can add some candy canes during the holiday season! Now that you know how simple it is to make a vase the centerpiece of your accents, go ahead and experiment with it.
- A mirror is also a great addition. Having a mirror near the entryway gives a strange but inviting effect to most people. However, it is up to you how inviting this mirror can be, because not all mirrors will be able to do a good job. It all depends on the design and how big it is. It needs to be big enough for the person to see up to their shoulders when they stand in front of it (you can hang it a certain way), and the design could also depend on the season if you have the money to spare. Normally, a well-designed wooden frame for a mirror is enough all year round.
- Slight transfers make a big difference. Moving some of your furniture slightly closer to the entry way can be inviting (just do it in a way that makes sense). You can also add some picture on a long table of you and your family to make it that much warmer.
And the steps above are all you need to know to make good use of accents for a warmer entryway. Feel free to experiment however you want!
