Modern Foyer / March 4, 2018 / Mathilde Fine.
In a modern home, the foyer or entryway is what gives you a first impression of your entire home. If your foyer is not decorated or lit up properly then it may spoil the entire impression of the rest of the rooms. So, more than all other lighting options, Foyer lighting should be top of your home decoration list. With simple ceiling lights to grand foyer chandeliers, you have wide options to light up your foyer.
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.
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!
Hang a tapestry on an iron rod and place a garden bench beneath. The tapestry will add softness and texture. The bench will not only be esthetically pleasing but functional as well, serving as a place for removing shoes or simply a resting place. If you have the ample room in your foyer, using a chest or commode is an excellent choice. The top of the chest gives you plenty of area to display your favorite lamp or a pair of candlestick lamps. You may also want to accessorize with a small collection of boxes or any other collection. I love the idea of all the extra storage space you gain when using a chest.
