Vintage Foyer / June 18, 2018 / Mathilde Fine.
Wall Sconces - Wall sconces add a welcoming glow to the entryway without taking up valuable real estate on a console table or your entryway furniture. Use one on either side of the door or an entryway system. You can also use wall sconces to draw the eye into the rest of the house by installing them in the foyer and down the hallway, if you have one leading out of the space. Choose from a variety of styles, shapes and finishes to pull your entryway’s look together. Sconces also come with uplighting, downlighting and multidirectional lighting to cast their glow on a variety of surfaces.
When it comes to shoes and boots, you may be stumped. They tend to take up the most room and if they have no place to go, they will certainly cause clutter that you don’t have room for. I love the idea of a small, off the ground shoe rack. You can do this yourself! See the tutorial from Fresh Crush on how you can make your own copper shoe rack.
Let MakeSpace store everything else - Don’t have enough room in your entryway to store everything? Let go of the stuff you don’t need. Then let MakeSpace store your off-season clothes, shoes, bike, surfboard, luggage, AC unit, and more. Simply schedule a pickup and pack your things. We’ll pick up everything from your home and carefully transport it to our secure temperature-controlled storage facility. And when you want something back from storage, simply browse the convenient online photo catalog of your stuff, click the item’s photo, and we’ll deliver it straight to you.
Pendants - Pendants work equally well in modern and traditional spaces, and they add radiance to your entryway while still drawing the eye upward to create the illusion of a taller space. Styles range from single, chandelier-like pendants to clusters of smaller pendants. Use a series of small pendants to light a long hallway-like entryway, or a single, large pendant for a smaller area. To calculate the size you need, try using the formula that many lighting experts use. Add the length and width of the entryway's dimensions and convert it from feet to inches. For example, if your foyer is 15' by 18', you get 33' after adding the two figures. In this case, you need a pendant that’s around 33 inches wide.
