Ideas for Your Front Entrance

Your front entrance will make a big impact on the curb appeal of your home. Get inspired by these entry designs - with photos of stamped concrete, colored concrete, flagstone, and tile exterior entrances.

Stamped Concrete Front Entrance #1: 

This ranch style home - defined by an open floor plan and comfortable ties to the outdoors - is filled with custom flourishes, including a stamped, colored concrete front entrance.

The stamped concrete design acts as a pathway leading to the front door. The curved pathway balances with the archway portico and arched windows.

Touches of an Arts and Crafts style appear throughout - just inside this two door front entrance - as built in bookcases, coffering, and art nooks. Take a look inside this Raleigh new home - here. 

Stamped Concrete Front Entrance #2:

Curved brick steps lead to the stamped concrete front entrance. A stately double column portico frames the vaulted ceiling design with arched openings.

Flagstone Front Entrance Design #1: 

Stone risers and curved flagstone steps lead to a stunning front portico wrapped in stone. 

Flagstones were chosen based on their size and color composition - with hits of blue, brown, and gold - hues that appear throughout this exterior design

These flagstones were stamped on-site, to craft a fully custom front entrance.

This exterior design also features a vaulted ceiling with bead board and trim design, statement-making white columns, and a dark stained front door with arched prairie grid transome above offer subtle natural light inside. Tour this home in a photo gallery - here. 

Flagstone Front Entrance Design #2: 

A flagstone pathway leads from the side-entry garage to this tucked-in front porch, also topped in flagstone. 

This home exterior, built on a heavily wooded lot, centers on a more succinct range of mahogany tones (with an emphasis on browns and reds rather than blues and golds).

Flagstone Front Entrance Design #3:

Flagstones are a natural material - and come in a wide variety of colors and hues. Because they are flat stones, they make great walkways and entrances.

This country custom home features flagstones with a much more varied color scheme - including creams, yellows, reds, and browns, with a hit of blue.

The browns and reds blend into the red home exterior siding and stone. The creams and yellows lighted up the pathway to the front door. See additional angles of this home exterior, here.  

Tile Front Entrance Design: 

While exterior tile designs are typically associated with Mediterranean style homes that use brightly colored accent tiles, a natural tile floor pattern distinguishes this modern home exterior. 

An exterior tile design can be a practical choice - especially when covered by a front portico.

Colored Concrete Front Entrance Design: 

Colored concrete flows from the driveway to the front door, creating a smooth, uninterrupted front entrance design. 

Soft and creamy brick arches above the windows and a herringbone design above the front door add character to the tan, brown, and mauve color scheme.
