Complement your home
The exterior of your home should set the stage for design, textures and colors that you choose. Consider replicating, augmenting or complementing the architectural features of your home and other elements of your landscape for a cohesive look and feel.
Scale and proportion
Great front entrance design happens when you keep scale, proportion and function in mind. Remember, a front walkway should never be less than 4 feet wide at any point. The walkway should extend along the driveway 16 feet to allow easy access from a car parked in the driveway.
Adding curb appeal
Any realtor will tell you that homes with great entrances sell faster and for more money. Incorporation of borders, planters, seat walls and pillars add simple but unique extras to your design.
Make it safe
Making your front entrance or walkway safe and practical is also very important. Consider adding lighting to your design with elements such as pillars and light fixtures, Skyfuel™ lights embedded in the pavers or NighTec™ pavers which glow in the dark. For superior slip resistance, we recommend Unilock Select™ products.
