About three and a half years ago we purchased a house, not just any house either. We bought my grandparents house that was built between 1923-1928.
Although the house needed and still needs a lot of work, it is the house I plan to live in for the rest of my life. Many of you followed our journey of our main floor renovation, we basically gutted the house and I got my dream kitchen.
Now that that project is complete we want to remove the summer kitchen that is attached (but basically falling off) the back of the house. Our plans include a den and grand entrance. These are exciting times in our home.
We came to the conclusions that a den would be a great place for our family to gather and enjoy each others company for years to come. This would be a place where our family could gather, along with friends, for years to come. By having this place available, it is our hope that our children can utilize this place so they can have fun with our family and their friends.
Now as for the entrance, we feel that this is a key part of the home. It is the first thing people will notice when they enter the home. This is where first impressions are made, and we all know how important first impressions are. By having a grand entrance you can have all those last minute chat that guests tend to have. In my experience it is in these settings where meaningful conversations happen; and to me this is important to us and our guests.
To me, a part of having a grand entrance also includes a HUGE walk in closet. I have been searching for closet organizers and ideas to make my walk in closet be both functional and beautiful.
At this point we have talked to a few contractors and the bank and are in the process of trying to make our dream a reality.
So tell me, do you love your home entrance? What things should I not forget to have?
