3 Ways To Upgrade A Home's Entrance Without Breaking The Bank

The home's entryway is the gateway to the rest of the home. A dark and cramped entryway can reduce the appeal of a home, even if the rest of it is well designed and airy. For homeowners trying to sell their home, a poorly designed entrance can make many potential buyers leave without even taking a look at the rest of the home. Many are tempted to demolish the space and start over. However this can get get expensive. Here are 3 ways to upgrade an entryway without going over budget. 

Upgrade The Railings

In a two story home, the stairs often take up a large portion of the entryway. For those with large budgets, fully replacing the staircase with an updated model is something that can drastically change the entire look of the space. For those looking for a less costly solution, just changing out the railings can make a huge difference in the look of the staircase. Ornamental railings will be cheaper than an entire staircase and can elevate the look of the room. Wrought iron and glass railings are a great way to add interest to the space. Ornamental iron or glass inserts can also be used with existing railings in order to save money. 


The easiest and often the cheapest way to change the look of any room is by painting it. The average cost of painting a room as a do-it-yourself project is around $200 to $300. Lighter color paint can automatically open up a dark space and make it seem larger. Painting is also a great way to get rid of builder's grade white walls and to make a space feel more lived in. For those who do not have the funds to upgrade to decorative railings, paint can also be used to change the look of the staircase. Painting stair railings a different color can make the staircase pop.

Light And Mirrors

For those who are unable to spend even a couple of hundred dollars, there are ways to improve the look of the entryway with things that may already be in the house. Mirrors placed on the walls are a great way to open up the space. They reflect light and add a decorative element to the space. Many homeowners also often have a few extra mirrors laying around. Extra light is also another way to improve the look of the space. Floor lamps and table lamps can be brought in to brighten up the space.

Upgrading any room in a home can be a challenge for any homeowner without a large budget. Entryways are often low on the priority list when it comes to home improvements. The good news is that there are plenty of economical ways to improve the way they look including upgrading the railings, painting the space, as well as adding extra lighting and mirrors.
