Dos:

  • Create an inviting and eye-catching entrance, both inside and out.
  • Include uplifting "greeters," such as a waterfall or piece of artwork.
  • Add bright and beautiful lighting so the pathway is safe and visible.
  • Place inspiring objects leading up to the door, like a meandering pathway and flowers.
  • Add plants, especially evergreens, which will stay lush all year.


Don'ts:

  • Pile up paperwork, trash or broken objects near the doorway, inside or out.
  • Walk into a wall or dead end. If necessary, add a mirror to help visually expand the space.
  • Have objects that get in your way or block the flow of energy moving into the home.
  • Leave broken steps or items in poor maintenance.
  • Let your garage door draw more attention than your home's entrance.
