There are two very popular sayings which might be really difficult to figure out who first said them but nonetheless, it is pretty easy to see that both sayings are as true when they were said as they are today – “First impression matters most” and “Home is where the heart is”.
Now, while both of these sayings seem a little more tilted towards romance than they are towards interior designing and decoration, allow us to bedazzle you with this post. Hopefully, at the end of this post, you might see why a good first impression is all too important for your home. This article showcases 30 modern entrance design ideas for your home. With a closer look at some of these images, you might see just how your current home entrance décor may not exactly be doing your home that much good.
Except for burglars who would rather use the window or Santa who prefers the chimney, your home entrance is the first thing your visitors would see when they come to your house. Your home entrance décor is a visitor’s first introduction to not just your home but your personality as well. A classy entrance insinuates a classy person, a rustic DIY entrance means the homeowner is a creative person and likewise, an unkempt entrance could mean the homeowner is unkempt as well.
Bottom line, your entrance design is your first impression. Now, if the home is where the heart is and the heart is literally the most important organ in the body, then you might want to consider keeping the one place your heart is in good shape. Here are 30 modern entrance design ideas for your home.
House Eleven would be quite easy to spot both during the day and at night, thanks to the LED light strategically positioned atop the home number which is noticeably written in a fancy font. Our guess is whoever lives here is simple, meticulous and elegant – judging by their home entrance décor!
This homeowner is just a plain show off!
Just kidding… this entrance is simply beautiful and even if the homeowner was a showoff, it is well worth it. This entrance design says “Come in, I have a pool”, “Forget everything else, the pool is what I want you to see”, “I’m good at swimming”, “I like the water”… if you are visiting someone who lives here, it would be a good idea to have a swimsuit ready.
We have shown our love for elegance in simplicity one too many times here on Homemagez.com but we only do that because that’s what a perfect décor is – not too shabby yet not too loud… just simple and elegant and this all white entrance design is the example of a simple yet elegant home entrance décor. The occasional infusion of nature’s greenness here and there is yet another quality we find awesome with this entrance design.
This home entrance décor welcomes you with love from Mother Nature. Tiny pebbles, a flower pot as well as a predominantly wood finish entrance tell visitors this homeowner loves nature quite a lot.
This entrance design literally ushers visitors into this home. Meticulously arranged flowers grace both sides of the walkway which are illuminated by LED lights, creating the illusion that the visitor is walking on fire!
A well-mowed lawn graces the far left as withered trees provide a touch of brown.
This home entrance décor is yet another one of our favorite combinations – nature’s greenness, simplicity and elegance (not to mention the white painting). This beautiful home features an entrance design with a glazing stairway that ends at a wooden door, a small water body with pebbles beneath it and lots of flowers to go around.
Just because we are ardent lovers of elegance in simplicity doesn’t mean we don’t recognize the beauty in glamor!
With a silver stairway that seemingly leads to the sky, flaming pebbles, nature’s greenness provided by the trees, and a see-through dining, this entrance design reeks of every shade of glamor that there is.

“Cleanliness is next to godliness” may not only be our third saying in this article on modern entrance design ideas for your home but it may also be this homeowners motto!
This predominantly white entrance design spots a touch of nature’s greenness provided by the well-mowed grass. A brick finish wall that matches the tiling within the home and flowers beside the final steps of this pathway make for a clean and attractive home entrance décor.
“Open Sesame!” … we know this line from the iconic Hollywood movie and this home entrance décor reminds us of that movie in classic fashion. Times were when doors did not use the push and pull technique… stones were rolled away in the ancient times and every once in a while, homeowners manage to blend modern day styles with the medieval.
The elegance in this entrance design is quite glaring and perhaps the only surprise would be if there isn’t a deep baritone voice saying “You may now enter!” when this door is opened.
This may be just what many people envisage paradise to be but this here is a good old home entrance with a décor that tells visitors all the homeowners’ favorite things.

This home entrance décor is cleverly yet carefully crafted to send a message. Creating the illusion of decay, abandonment or aging as the case may be, this entrance design features seemingly dying plants but the true message with this entrance design lies with the unfinished tiling!
Pictures say a thousand words but this home entrance décor leaves us a little flabbergasted and this doesn’t happen very often – the last time we were this flabbergasted was when we first saw the tiny 37 square meter studio apartment we bought and refurbished – and this wasn’t the good kind of flabbergasted. It’s located in Varna City, Bulgaria and you should check our article on refurbishing the home. You’d love it.

Tiny homes are always packing a lot more than meets the eye so it is easy to see why this entrance design is quite simple. This simplistic walkway is sure to end in a big reveal. Our article titled “Take a peek inside these tiny custom homes” shows you just what we mean when we say “…more than meets the eye”.
This entrance design may not seem like much but a fence blind is not something you’d find every day. White pebbles line both sides of the walkway as though to show visitors the way to the living room – “follow the pebble!”
This simple but attractive home entrance décor features amazing underwater LED lighting, a touch of nature’s greenness provided by the flower pot, a walkway sitting atop the water body that eventually stops at a wooden door. Needless to say, this is quite the exquisite entrance design.
Perhaps inspired by the concept of a pier, this unique home entrance décor blends wood and LED lighting to create a simple masterpiece.
With each section of the walkway higher than the preceding one, this entrance design might just be dubbed “Still we rise”. Again, the home features white painting which often makes homes beautiful but the true beauty rests in the flower placement in this home entrance décor.
Cavemen have upgraded since the Stone Ages and with a home entrance décor like this, we might want to consider becoming one of them ourselves.
Let the light guide your way!
Stay on the path of light!
There’s just so much that can be taken from this amazing entrance design. From the LED lights to the potted flowers and their placement, to the well-mowed lawn on the far right, as well as the water body that starts when the lights stop. This home entrance décor is simply laudable.
This home is built for symmetry and transparency… with a simple entrance designed to impress visitors. In contrast to usual walkways, this home entrance décor features two paths that lead to the entrance with the more artistic entrance meeting with the simple entrance giving guests the thrill of choosing which way they want to go.
Maybe “X” no longer marks the spot, two white lines do!
LED lights on this simplistic pathway lead visitors to a door they would love to watch open and close a few times before they are greeted by nature’s presence through the glass. Flowers border the pathway to the right and a giant wall to the left!
We would always love the combination of white painting, wood finishing and nature’s greenness – needless to say, this entrance design features all of the above.
Too many direct walkways, adding a little bit of fun might spice things up!
If you are refurbishing or even building your home, this entrance design might just be the perfect fit for your home entrance décor. LED lights and a well-mowed lawn add even more to the overall beauty of this entrance design.
This entrance is not so much about the walkway… this is more about how beautifying nature’s greenness can be!
Clearly, the unsymmetrical walkway is the modernized version of the usual straight walkway and we love it. Strategically positioned LED lights and a touch of nature here and there make for an all round spectacular home entrance décor.
This time, the walkway is filled in with perfectly mowed grasses. A variety of flowers on one end and a clear water body on the other adds a spicy touch to this entrance design.
What would have been an otherwise bland T-shape walkway is redefined by simply demarcating the walkway. This entrance design is lush with nature’s greenness as trees, flowers and grasses are positioned in every corner.
Home decorations require both skill and passion or experience – this homeowner seems to have all qualities. The contrast between the wooden walkway and the concrete distance separating the walkway and the front porch is just genius!
As with most modern entrance design ideas, the home entrance décor features some pebbles under water.
Our final pick had to be something spectacular!
