First impressions never have second chances. It is important to create an impression on people when they walk into your house. As a homeowner, it is always exciting coming home from work to a home that oozes good vibes. We are now going to look at 7 ways that you can create an amazing first impression.
Paint Your Front Door in a Colour That Sets the Tone for Your House
Emotions can be stirred by colours. It also communicates your style. So, when you select a colour that represents your personality, it communicates your energy to your guests. Ensure that you have a door knocker, a good door, and select a good type of paint. Additionally, you need to keep your pathway and doorway tidy and clean.
Place Good Lighting in Your Entrance
The entrance is the first thing your guest will experience when they enter your home. So, ensure that the first room your guests enter is well lit. You don’t have to make it totally bright; you can place a layered system of lighting. You can work with a mixture of natural light from windows, light from lamps, pendants, and spotlights.
Create a lovely Scent
You wouldn’t want your guests to get into your home and the first thing they smell is your bin. They will never forget it. You can start by burning a scented candle about 20 minutes before guests arrive. Avoid taking it too far by placing a strong scent. Instead, pick a sweet scent that has a mild fragrance. You can also try a room diffuser because it leaves a subtle fragrance without any trace of a burnt candle.
Have A Signature Piece of Art, Decoration, Furniture in the First Room or Entryway
Although you want to please your guests, it is important to mark your first room with a piece of furniture, art, or decoration like a showroom carpet. This piece is the first point of contact which will help your guests get to know you. It is a piece that will set the tone for your room. You don’t have to go all the way to purchase something that is over the top expensive. You can shop carpets and other decorations in local retail stores. Ensure that you can keep it simple but interesting.
Place Fresh Flowers and Plants Around Your Home
‘Fresh’ is the keyword. Green indoor plants and fresh flowers give life to a home. So, having a garden or fresh flower near an entrance cleans the air in the area and makes your entrance even look great.
Play Great Music
Amazing soft music in the background is a great way to relax the mood in your home. You don’t have to play jazz, but no matter your taste, try to create a perfect and comfortable atmosphere for your guests, depending on the occasion.
Have a Serve-wear for Your Occasions
When your guests arrive, what is the first thing you can provide them? Serve them with drinks. Instead of having old glasses or mugs, serve them in unique tumblers. Also, have a great tray for serving your guests.
