Modern Foyer / May 21, 2018 / Desiree Cyr.
Choose a color that will give you a lift when you come through the door after a long day. extured, glazed or marbleizing walls are an excellent choice. It’s virtually impossible to see dirty marks or fingerprints. Give your walls a kind of strie’ effect of three or four different shades by glazing any darker color with a lighter one.
Just consider yourself a guest and look at your unlit and dull foyer; it’s not going to feel good at all! To greet your guests with a warm feel and to create that dramatic first impression, you’ll need perfect foyer lighting fixtures. From Foyer chandeliers, pendant chandeliers, flush mounts, wall scones and many more, you have plenty of foyer lighting options. Among all these, foyer chandeliers are always the timeless choice, for plenty of light and elegant presence. They come in many styles from modern to transitional, and they are not always traditional. Your individuality lies in your choice!
Though you make your choice of style too well, you might go wrong with the dimensions. A very useful tip to choose the right sized chandelier is - add the length and width of your foyer and the number you get should be the diameter of your entryway chandelier! Also, remember that the fixture should be fixed at least seven feet above your floor. As they play a major role in your home decoration, it is good to select them after much analysis.
Choose a Theme - Sticking with a single, unifying motif in a foyer is a highly original way to introduce guests to your style from the minute they walk in the door. Since most entries are on the smaller side, they’re ideal candidates for an impactful, patterned wallpaper moment. Rely on Symmetry and Size - Use symmetry to create order in your entry with matching pairs of lamps and accessories. The perfect entry is a mini moment unto itself, and an oversize mirror is one of the quickest ways to accomplish this. Don’t be afraid to go big—you won’t be sorry.
