A New Home Entranceway Makes a Statement

Design Your New Home Entranceway to Make a Statement

Ideas and Inspiration for Your Bay Area Home

A thoughtfully designed home entranceway makes a statement and becomes the showstopper for your property. Not only does it reflect your personality, but it also sets the tone for the rest of your home’s design and décor. At Flegel’s, we have created many such bold and distinctive entryways as part of home exterior makeover projects. Explore some of our transformative work to find great ideas and inspiration for your Bay Area home.

Create Lasting Impressions with a Well-Designed Front Entryway

Choosing the right door color, materials, style, exterior paints, walkways, and landscaping, is all part of planning your home exteriors. Our team at Flegel’s offers useful ideas to help you plan impressive entryways that stand out.

  • Repeat a material from your home’s interiors into the entrance layout for a beautifully integrated look
  • Install well-proportioned feature columns in natural stone, for a grand, defined entryway
  • Consider recessed fences or gates to add a layer of sophistication and detail to the front of your home
  • Incorporate a sculptural element, such as a large planter, a specially commissioned piece of art, or custom millwork to give your entryway a unique personality
  • Complement the home’s exteriors with creative paths and plantings highlighted with attractive lighting

As the Bay Area’s leading home remodeling company, we have successfully renovated numerous homes of varying sizes and architectural styles. Our portfolio includes sprawling bungalows, compact apartments, and the mid-century modern style, Eichler homes.

Here are some examples of the entryways from our past projects, which may serve as inspiration for your home.

Bringing the outside in or the inside out

We remodeled this attractive Palo Alto home into a stunning masterpiece, while retaining its many unique features and architectural details. The pop of red on the front door matches with the custom red cabinets in the kitchen, lending this home a chic, modern look.

Tying in the exterior architectural elements

In this project, we incorporated a custom steel-clad front door that complements the wonderful architectural features of this gorgeous Los Altos home. The Dwell Magazine Silicon Valley Home Tour covered this project to showcase how we incorporated a clever blend of traditional and modern elements into the entire home makeover.

Adding a touch of class with a striking fence and door    

In this magnificent Palo Alto Eichler home, we installed a warm wooden sliding fence that offers much-needed privacy, along with an electric blue front door that opens into bright, contemporary interiors.

Weaving a story with unusual framing

Another one of our projects to feature on the Dwell Magazine Silicon Valley Home Tour, the entryway of this Greenmeadow Palo Alto home tells a story of its own. While beautiful cedar wood slats frame one side of the elegant glass door, on the other is custom stucco with a striking Reglet trim featuring the house number. These details lend a distinctive personality to this home.
