Blue Ridge Properties has compiled this list of tips to help with all of your real estate needs from staging and styling to sell your home fast to ensuring you get the best deal as a home buyer:

Make a statement with your entryway

The entryway can be easily overlooked when decorating your home, but the truth is it makes a lasting impression. Here are a few do's and don'ts to make the most of this space.

Do…

Reflect your style. Choose an entryway table that speaks to the overall feel of your home-be it bold, minimalist or rustic. This sets the tone and gives your guests a great first impression.

Use the "rule of three." Avoid cluttering this space with small decorations. Instead, choose up to three statement pieces such as a large mirror on the wall, a unique lamp and vase with long stems. Keeping this space sparse will make it look clean and welcoming.

Don't…

Stash your stuff. A pile of mail and mismatched shoes shouldn't be the first things your guests see. Add baskets for shoes, use a tray to catch mail, and tuck keys, sunglasses and other miscellaneous items into a drawer.

Ignore function. Add a bench with throw pillows for guests to sit while taking off their shoes and include a coat tree or wall hooks for bags and jackets. When entertaining, move the majority of your items to a nearby closet to give your guests priority.
