Look at this small and sensational facade

Undoubtedly this is a wonderful entrance, that oozes warmth and elegance.

A large wooden door with a modern garden

One option is to create an entrance to your small house that is distinguished from the rest of the building around it by using a good combination of materials. 

You can create a wonderful alliance between wood, glass, concrete and the presence of nature thanks to a front garden. This will also make the size and layout of the house seem that much bigger. 

The result is an amazing entrance packed with modernity and personality.

The color sheme

Combining colors when it comes to the entrance of your home, especially when it is small, will help give depth and dynamism to the space without it becoming overwhelming.

Sober colors like blue tones work very well with white tones, creating a very dramatic look and feel. Don't you love the metal lattices in this design, which gives the family privacy while still allowing sunlight to stream into the home. 

Don't you just want to go and knock on the door?

And some green

(The green vertical garden inside is also a very modern idea.)

A small covering over the door

The materials, colors and architectural elements in the entrance of this house seem simple but are of great aesthetic richness.

Divided into two parts, we can see how the lattices allow ventilation and natural light as well as add a stylish touch to the exterior facade. This works very well with the wooden beams that cover the entrance.

On the other hand, a large white wall adds a sleek texture, contrasting with the natural stone. The minimalist garden adds color and a fresh natural look and feel to the home. 

An entrance with clad stone that contrasts with the facade

A flagstone wall on the wide of the wooden door exudes beauty and innovation, despite how small this house is. It also contrasts beautifully with the two volumes of pure white. 

With the pure straight lines, the composition of this design is perfect despite the square meters being scarce. This adds elegance and modernity to the entrance.

The detail in the windows breaks up the monotony of the plain white facade too, thanks to the different sizes and the lattices on the upper window.

Look at how this entrance is the focal point.

The natural

Within the range of neutral colors, this facade is a beautiful grey. This color is very distinct and is always a safe bet for a facade because it can be combined with various shades. Integrate it with natural plants and flowers, which make the entrance the focal point of the facade. Plants will add a touch of exceptional life!
