Making an Entrance: Reviving your Entryway




When it comes to home redecoration, we often prioritise rooms like the kitchen or living room while overlooking transitional spaces like halls or entryways. However, these areas play a crucial role in setting the tone for your home and welcoming guests. The entryway serves a practical function as the gateway in and out of your home, where shoes, coats, and bags are often stored. It’s essential to strike a balance between functionality and aesthetics to ensure the area remains tidy yet inviting.




To begin revamping your entryway, consider its intended use and frequency of use by household members and guests. Visualise colours, textures, and styles that align with both your personal taste and practical needs. If space and budget allow, incorporating a window or skylight can infuse the area with natural light and create an airy ambiance. Alternatively, mirrors can be strategically placed to visually expand smaller entryways and reflect light throughout the space.




When redesigning the entryway, don’t overlook any aspect of the space, from walls to floors and even corners. Thoughtful consideration of each element will contribute to a cohesive and welcoming atmosphere that sets the stage for the rest of your home.







Fresh Mulch and Plants




Enhancing the curb appeal of your home is as simple as putting fresh mulch down and planting new greenery outside the front of your house. A layer of fresh mulch not only adds aesthetic appeal but also helps retain moisture, suppress weeds, and regulate soil temperature, promoting the health and growth of your plants. Pairing this with carefully chosen plants can transform the exterior of your home, creating a welcoming and vibrant atmosphere. Whether you opt for colourful flowers to add pops of brightness or shrubs for year-round appeal, thoughtful landscaping adds character and charm to your home’s façade, leaving a lasting impression on visitors and passersby alike.





High Pressure Clean




Revitalise the exterior of your property with Hire A Hubby’s high-pressure cleaning services. Over time, dirt, grime, and debris can accumulate on surfaces such as driveways, pathways, and walls, diminishing the overall appearance of your home. Our Hubbies can high-pressure clean to effectively remove stubborn stains and restore surfaces to their original glory. From removing mould and mildew to eliminating built-up dirt, our thorough cleaning process ensures a fresh and rejuvenated look for your property’s facade.







Front Door




Painting the front door can introduce a vibrant burst of colour to your home’s exterior and is a simple way to freshen up its look. The beauty of painting your door is that you can easily change the colour whenever you like, especially when it comes time to sell. It’s an opportunity to experiment with bold hues you might hesitate to use inside or to extend your interior style to the outside.




Perhaps you’re seeking a colour that adds sharpness to your home’s appearance—the front door is the first impression guests have when they arrive. If you’re not quite ready for a bold colour, consider softer pastel shades, which are equally stunning when paired with whites or other pastel exterior paints.




Opt for satin or eggshell finishes for woodwork, while gloss provides a high-shine finish. Prioritise durability when choosing paint, ensuring it’s weather-resistant to withstand wind and rain, as well as UV-resistant to maintain its vibrant colour over time.







Decorating – Wallpaper, Wood Panelling, White or Colour?




A fresh coat of paint in a vibrant hue or calming neutral tone can instantly breathe new life into your entry area, setting the tone for the rest of your home. Alternatively, consider adding visual interest with textured wallpaper or the timeless elegance of wood paneling.




Hie A Hubby can help you choose the perfect option to suit your style and budget. With attention to detail and precision craftsmanship, we’ll transform your entryway into a stunning focal point.








Bench / Storage




Like many entryways, storage is often a necessity, whether it’s for shoes, umbrellas, or other daily essentials. Underseat cupboards offer a convenient space-saving solution. You can opt for custom-built options from Hire A Hubby or explore ready-made options from retailers like IKEA. Consider the level of usage the area will receive and your preferences regarding visibility of stored items. Balancing practicality and aesthetics ensures your hallway remains tidy while also reflecting your personal style.




Let Hire A Hubby handle the construction of your custom bench or assemble your flatpack furniture with ease. Save yourself the hassle and let us take care of the hard work for you.








Photo Gallery




Transform your entryway into a captivating gallery space by displaying a curated collection of artwork or family photos. Remember – a well-designed gallery wall serves as a visual reflection of your personality and interests, instantly adding character to a blank space.




When creating a gallery wall, keep it simple and avoid overthinking the process. Consider the available space and choose pieces that complement each other in size, colour, and style. Coordinate frames to create a cohesive look, linking colours within the artwork and surrounding furnishings. Draw inspiration from the tones in the artwork or opt for a predetermined colour palette to guide your selection.




For larger gallery walls, mix and match sizes to create visual interest. Embrace the rule of three, as odd-numbered groupings tend to appear more natural and balanced. Symmetrical arrangements work well for even-numbered displays, while staggering the alignment adds a dynamic touch.




To prevent common mistakes, always plan your layouts beforehand. Plan out the layout to ensure a composition that suits your appeal. Ensure colours complement each other, and maintain size variation and consistent spacing between framed artwork. Sticking to a theme helps!




Let Hire A Hubby take care of hanging all your pictures, mirrors, and photos. Remember, proper planning is key to success.
