  Impress Your Buyers With A Dramatic Entry - Back
When prospective buyers come to see your house, the overall exterior appearance of your property sets the first impression in the buyers' minds. The space inside the front door – your entry or foyer – is the second thing they'll see. This relatively small area is to the interior what the curb appeal is to the exterior. Make the most of this opportunity by adding drama, freshening up, and adding details that say, 'Welcome!'

Add a lot of drama to your entry by showcasing just one piece of furniture. An interesting chair, for example, with a pot of flowers or a lush plant, like a fern, resting on the seat creates a simple, elegant statement. A side table grouped with a unique vase has the same effect. You can also highlight the entry with a single piece of art like a beautiful basket, or an interesting piece of folk art.

A bouquet of fresh flowers is an excellent way to greet buyers. A generous bouquet lends a touch of grace and beauty that makes them feel especially welcome, while conveying your pride in the property. If you don't want to splurge on a big bouquet, buy a single beautiful bloom to stand alone in a bud vase. A single rose or one brilliant Gerbera daisy can make a huge statement in the foyer.

A brand new throw rug in the entry will add color, texture, and warmth, and lend a fresh look. If you’re putting a throw rug over a bare floor, be sure to put a non-skid pad under it. If your entry or foyer is carpeted, layer a throw rug over the wall-to-wall to add dimension and interest.

Unless the switch plates look brand new, replace them. Brass switch plates are a handsome accent, if they fit your décor.

Update the lighting in the entry. Consider a new halogen fixture that directs the light to an important item or interesting aspect of the entry.

By creating a smashing entry, you'll win buyers the minute they step through the door. You'll also instill a sense of excitement about the other wonderful features of your house.
