Bea wanted to make a good first impression for anyone who would come to stay in her BnB. So she tackled the front door. She put in some faux panels  and made a boring, flat panel, hollow core door look more exciting. Watch the video to see how Bea snazzed up her door from blah to bongga!

Doors are so important, especially front doors. They give people their first impression of how homes could look like inside. It’s much like a calling card which you give to people whom you’ve met for the first time in business events.

In feng shui, a front door influences the qi (energy) that enters your home. So do try to make your door a little more welcoming for that kind of energy you want to attract into your space. The good thing is, with Bea’s instructional video, you don’t need to break the bank.
