Update your Entry!

Does Your Home Make a Good First Impression?

Your entryway is the first thing that most people see when they enter your home. Does your entryway make visitors feel welcome – or does it turn them off? Even more importantly, does your entryway make you feel calm and happy when you enter your home? If not, let DogGoneHandy help! Updating your entryway could completely change the feel of your home, just in time for the holiday season when you might be expecting more visitors than usual!


To start, you might want to consider exterior door replacement. The style of your front door is often overlooked – but the right door announces your personality to the world! A front door with lots of windows will let light in, making your entryway feel open and breezy – while a more heavy-duty Spanish style door adds a classic, old-world charm. A pop of color, like bright teal or yellow, can make you smile each time you pull into your driveway. If your entryway already lets in a little too much light, our handymen are well-equipped to install blinds, hang curtains, or add elegant plantation shutters. As temperatures get cooler, making sure that your front door is properly sealed can also help keep your family warm – and potentially save money on your energy bill, too.


Moving into the entryway itself, DogGoneHandy can help upgrade your entryway lighting from the standard overhead dome light to something more thoughtful and unique. Our handyman electricians can install your preferred choice of light – whether that’s wall sconces, a beautiful chandelier, a modern conversation-starter, or refined recessed can lights. As the days get shorter and darker, quality lighting helps ensure that your entryway feels warm and welcoming as soon as people step in the door. But what good is great lighting, without something beautiful to look at? Our handymen can hang your favorite artwork, family photos, and mirrors with perfect precision! Showcase your favorite moments, memories, and masterpieces as the first thing people see when they come inside.


With the door, lighting, and decor upgraded, all that’s left are the walls and ceiling. These are also areas that can be easily overlooked, but they provide a blank canvas for playful touches and your own personal style. Of course, DogGoneHandy can help with painting your entryway – but why not try something a little more creative, like shiplap siding? We can also install wallpaper for a dose of color and pattern! Once regarded as outdated and stuffy, wallpaper is making a major comeback in both contemporary and retro-inspired prints. DogGoneHandy’s crew can even upgrade a boring ceiling with wooden planks or beams, or install a skylight to blend the transition from outdoors to indoors and offer even more natural lighting.


Upgrading your entryway is an easy, affordable way to convey the charm and style of your home as soon as people set foot inside. Worried about taking on such a high-profile project?
