If you’re looking to update your New Orleans home, the front entryway is a great place to start. This is the area most people see, and provides the first impression to your guests.
Start With A Walkway
A concrete front walkway can not only add beauty to your home, it can also protect your front lawn from foot traffic and provide better grip in wet weather. If you have an existing walkway that looks like it’s seen better days, repair and restoration options are available as well. Steps are also a good consideration, making your home look more sophisticated.
Walkways and steps can be created with unique patterns, colours and shapes. With concrete stamping and overlays, there are endless options.
Lighting is important, especially if you have steps. You don’t want your guests to be tripping in the dark, or stepping off the walkway onto your lawn. Decent lighting may also minimize the risk of break-ins and creates a pleasant mood, making the front of your house look great long after the sun goes down.
Add A Garden
You can enhance the colour of your front entryway very easily by adding flowers. A garden can become a great hobby as well. If you don’t want to install a garden, consider planting flowers along the side of your walkway.
Your New Orleans home should be something you’re proud of. Your local concrete contractor or landscaper will be able to tell you your best options for installing a beautiful new entryway, or the restoration of your existing one.
