as you say, it looks 1000% better.

The first thing that jumped out at me with the old tile entry was the narrow strip on the left.
The wood planks are nicely even and matched...not to mention that they impart a warm welcoming touch to the entry way

Even tho I re-painted the fireplace when we moved in I am thinking of Re-painting it yet again.....
How do ya like the Reddish brown part to the left as it's overall color or should I leave it the off white?

our apartment entry has that typical look but there is a slight rise to the flooring. Typical Japanese custom of leaving your shoes on that area to avoid dirt tracking in! Every house, business has it...doctor offices etc....

.... 1) do you want to call attention to the mantle place?
and 20 do you want it to get visually smaller?
The darker color will call attention right to it and a darker color will visually diminish its apperant size
