Modern Foyer / April 8, 2018 / Gracie Satterfield.
Increase Your Closet Space - A chest is a great entry option for those with limited closet space. It’s the perfect place to stash off-season clothes or bulky linens. Keep them guessing by pairing a traditional-style chest with a modern mirror or piece of art, or vice versa. Establish a Mini-Room - There’s no reason a foyer can’t be a petite sitting room if you have the space. Using a bench rather than a storage piece and providing a few other places to perch can turn the entry from a pass-through into an extra, intimate seating area.
Build a Working Way Station - Your entry is the first line of defense when it comes to keeping muddy shoes out of the living room. Supplying ample storage for shoes, gloves, and other essentials will keep the rest of your home looking pristine, no matter the season. Put Passions on Display - Consider your entry a chance to message to guests from the minute they walk in what matters most to you. Books, artwork, and favorite objects are always great additions to the space, regardless of whether it’s a grand entry or an apartment nook.
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.
