Modern Foyer / February 22, 2018 / Morgan Braden.
If your foyer lacks architectural interest, secure an oversized decorative wall shelf or bracket on the wall directly facing you as you walk through the door. I like to place them on the wall at least five feet high or higher depending on ceiling height. This is a great place to display an elegant antique vase or urn. In a less formal setting you may want to display a simple pot of trailing ivy to add softness. This is also a great idea because it keeps your floor space free of clutter.
Foyer chandeliers can be used in both spacious and smaller rooms. These types of lighting fixtures are designed in such a way that a particular style may appear to enhance the space while another can create an opposite impact. Houses lacking a spacious entrance can greatly improve the look of it by hanging a foyer chandelier.
Your entryway is the first thing you (and your guests!) see upon arrival, so ensure it makes a lasting impression. Whether you have a grand entry hall or a makeshift foyer nook, there’s plenty you can do to make the space your own. Read on for a few of our favorite ways to decorate this all-important spot—and get inspired to give your own entryway a stylish refresh.
In a small foyer maximize the light and make a tight area feel less cramped with a floor to ceiling mirror. Your foyer may be a tiny space with only a coat closet and no place to hang a mirror. So why not mirror the closet door! This will make your space appear larger. Depending on how your closet door is positioned, it may double a gorgeous view of the outdoors.
