Adding a few key items can transform your front door area just as much as new paint. The key is to keep it simple. You want this area to reflect the serene space that your home is on the inside. Stick with a symmetrical design. It’s the easiest and most straightforward way to put together a look that’s automatically pleasing to the eye. Use plants and sconces to balance out the area, and place an attractive pendant light and welcome mat toward the center of the space.
