The foyer or entryway of a home is the first impression. Let visitors bask in your home’s welcoming embrace by creating a space that is stylish and even a little bold. Wow visitors with a stunning foyer and welcome them into your home with flair. Here are some tips on how to achieve an entry that is wow-worthy along with some beautiful spaces to inspire you.
Consider the flooring you have in the foyer. To make it more interesting, install a patterned hardwood, paint the floors, install tile or place a unique and colorful rug down.
Texture, wallpaper and paint can make a big impact in the foyer. Even smaller spaces can benefit from bold paint and artwork. The ledge shelf below is perfect for a narrow entrance to display accessories. The mirror helps open up the space.
Stripes on an accent wall enhanced with the fabric of the bench create a visual statement in this foyer. The starburst mirror lends dimension and drama.
A bright paint color is a stylish way to bring personality and character to your foyer. Add to that accessories, a nice console table and an umbrella stand for the ultimate of hospitality for rainy day visitors.
Satin and gloss paint add drama to the foyer. Pair that with artwork and personal collections for a stunning introduction to your home that shows off your unique style.
Horizontal stripes and mirrors combine to bring interest and depth to the foyer. These stripes offer contrasting colors along with white or cream to create a nicely balanced scheme. The horizontal stripes also visually elongate the foyer.
Bold patterns extended to the ceiling make for a statement entrance. This all-over pattern envelops the space with character. Add a few bright accents for pops of color and install a ceiling fixture that reflects your style.
Be wild and wallpaper the foyer in an exotic animal print. Zebras dance on a field of red for a spirited entrance. Visitors will delight in your bold statement. Carry the theme throughout your home in subtle ways to maximize the impact.
A unique wall treatment, curved ironwork stair railing, interesting sculpture and animal print rug give this foyer a one-of-a-kind appeal. This home says “get ready for a surprise” when you enter.
A cozy welcoming foyer immediately relaxes and charms visitors. If you have the space available in your foyer, make the most of it by decorating it just as you would the rest of the home. Treat it as a room and give it all the comforts of a cozy nook.
Built-ins in the entryway add a custom look and create space for storage.
Two key pieces of furniture for the foyer are the bench or settee and a console table. These offer the convenience and comfort needed to welcome guests and keep items handy, such as keys and mail.
Nothing makes a statement in the foyer like a glistening chandelier. This is one place in the home, other than maybe the dining room, where you don’t want to skimp on lighting. Go big and bold for maximum impact.
Two-story foyers are dramatic in themselves, but you can make the most of them by hanging large artwork and even creating two levels of design space, such as the foyer below. Place a rug for color, softness and to dampen noise.
Make a statement for your home by wowing visitors with your foyer. Incorporate personal touches, artwork, mirrors, painting and wallpaper treatments and furniture for a complete and welcoming appeal. Make the first impression memorable.
