First impressions certainly count when it comes to your home or business so we've got a few front entrance ideas to inspire you. The first approach to your property by a visitor (or a potential buyer) is when you can impress them with a great door and door colour, pretty planting and an inviting pathway to the door.

If you're lucky enough to have a long path to your front door, then crunchy gravel is the way to go. We also love the brightly-coloured roses leading us up the garden path (oo-er).

This entrance is reserved, classic, and oh so classy. The front door in dark green is perfectly complemented by the greenery on either side and the oak planters add just enough of a rustic touch. The well-chosen lighting also continues the modern rustic farmhouse theme.
We can already smell the fragrant wisteria that artfully frames this house entrance; it is perfectly sculpted around that gorgeous arched window.

Even in the winter, the soft grey on this front door with brass accents give this Victorian house entrance the wow factor. And they've chosen a cute Moroccan-inspired pendant light to illuminate their evenings.
Hotel entrances need to be immaculate and inviting, indicative of your stay. The Lime Tree Hotel here has opted for a slick black and white theme, softened by the greenery and warmed up by the terracotta edge tiles.
The facade of the Charlotte Street Hotel is much photographed and we're not surprised. Their soft grey-green colour choice is gorgeous and is perfectly layered with the large olive trees and cute green lampposts.
