As we all know, every day of the festival carries significance. Dhanteras, being the commencing day should be celebrated with enthusiasm. So, to mark a good beginning, let's start with decorating the preface of the house, that is, the entryway. “The first impression is the last impression.” Thus, leaving a good impression on your guests is essential. Today, let's see how one can create a glamorous and a welcoming entryway in the home:
1. Get a seat-cum-storage:
A seat on the gateway is a fantastic option to make your place more cordial. Additionally, you can get a shoe rack-cum-bench. This would be a fine gesture, where the visitors can take off the shoes while comfortably sitting on the seat.
2. Decorate a wall unit with sparkling candles:
A brilliant way to create a bright entryway is through decorating a wall shelf on the either side with diyas, candles and other items. Wall units become an excellent source of display for a particular theme.
3. Hang a lantern:
Lanterns are always preferred and make a great decoration, especially during the Diwali season. You can hang a colourful one on the entryways. These can be attached either on the top or the side as per your convenience.
4. Get a classy chest of drawers:
Another furniture unit that can beautifully adorn the entryway of the house is a contemporary chest of drawers. In many commercial places, a chest of drawers is kept at the entryway or the waiting lounge. Keeping it at the entrance of the home is a good idea as not only it enhances the area but also provides an additional storage space.
5. Floating candles:
A tub of floating candles and flowers on the entryways would work wonders. This will glow up your house only if you have a considerably broad entryway as the tubs require sufficient space.

A mirror on the entryway is a great addition. Above the chest or on a bare wall, wooden mirror frames can add charm to a simple wall. Besides this, it also makes a place appear more prominent due to the reflections. Turning up your entrance into a bigger and brighter one is so easy, all you got to do is bring a classy mirror frame.
