Making An Entrance. Just as first impressions count when you enter a room full of people, so do the first impressions count as you enter a house or the entrance to a commercial building. Colour, texture and symmetry all play a role in setting a scene for how a visitor perceives the space they are entering. It also sets the tone for expectations for the other rooms and spaces within that property. It’s no surprise that the more care and consideration is given to the entrance hall the better received a property generally is. It can also give an innate sense of style and aesthetic direction.
