First Impressions . . . You Never Get A Second Chance



It’s the first impression at the front door that is most important; no matter the style of your home.


Nothing makes more of a statement about a home than the front door. The front door is the first thing people see when they go to your home. Since the front door is a key focal point when people go to your house it is important to make a good impression. Remember first impressions may end up being lasting impressions.


According to the latest research, it takes just ten seconds to decide whether or not you will buy a house. Four of those ten seconds will be standing at the front door. According to designer Cecilia Neal, “Your front door reflects what you think about a house. A door can sell a property.” You never get a second chance to make a good impression, so why not get it right the first time?


There are many ways we make a front door and entry ways more appealing without breaking the bank. We spruce it up, add seasonal decorations, a basket of flowers, use window boxes or hanging baskets, put down a new door mat, paint the front door an eye catching color that makes a statement, change your door knob, among other things. You will be surprised how these few changes can transform your front door/entry way into an inviting entrance!
