“You never get a second chance to make a first impression.”
No one is sure who first uttered these words of wisdom, but they’ve been quoted for decades, in all kinds of situations. And it’s true, first impressions are important for setting the tone in any new relationship. First impressions carry weight…consider the attention you give to dressing for a blind date or a job interview.
Equally important is the impression the entryway to your home makes on your guests.When the door opens, what do they see?
- A cluttered floor
- Piles on a chair or console table
- A dark, empty foyer
If you have not made an effort to make your entryway inviting, it may not present a good introduction to the rest of your home. Instead of making a good first impression, you entryway may be sending out negative vibes.
