This area had the worst flow I have ever experienced in a house. I don't have a picture, but the front door opened up to have you face a wall that ended in a black pit of open space under the stairwell. We picked out a new glass front door, switching the "hand"- new handle on the left side instead of the right side. Geoff built a door and wall making a small, pleasant entry closet instead of a dark pit to the side on the right.
From the front door into the dining room was a small opening that just felt dumpy. We opened the archway and, with the new glass door, light now pours into the dining room. We also wallpapered one wall of the entry way to accent the nine foot ceiling and have a little fun. All of the hardware for the doors and windows is Emtek- order on line for best prices.
