House of Smiths Home Tour – Entryway
Happy July everyone! This month, my posts will be a little different. Instead of showing you OTHER peoples houses and ideas, I’m going to show you mine! This July on the Homes.com blog, I’m sharing a little piece of my homes transformation with you each week. Our first stop, naturally, is our front porch and entryway.
Along with all of these changes, we also decided that having the backside of our front door painted black would be really cool! We love how it anchors the space now and gives the area a focal point.
Just last Summer we also realized how much of our entryway was being underutilized. We had a standard coat closet on one side, and rarely even used it. So instead of letting all of that space go to waste, we removed the door, cut out a bit more of the wall, designed a custom mudroom type nook, and opened up our space even more!
Now our entryway is a lot more functional and has tons of personality and charm that reflects our family’s style a lot better than before.
We’re in LOVE with our homes outside and inside entryway now. Even though it’s taken us almost two years to get it right… we’ve finally accomplished the task of utilizing every square inch and taking this once boring, dark space to it’s fullest, brightest, most functional potential!
