  1. Doorways

Tips to make your Canberra home stand out - doorways

First impressions count, we all know this. Therefore, repaint your front door, redecorate the doorframe, clean the windows, add or fix the bell/door knocker. These things just bring a little extra comfort when others come to your home.

If someone comes to your home and the paint is peeling off the door or the roses are dying on the porch they will immediately associate this negativity with the rest of the home.

As an added bonus, get some inviting words on the porch. Get a welcome mat or sign for the door. It will add that extra little piece to your home, making it far warmer.

This can also be extrapolated to other doorways. Anytime someone walks through a doorway they enter a new part of the house. Make that doorway inviting and you relax their mind for the room beyond.

  1. Storage Spaces
