Modern Foyer / June 27, 2018 / Mathilde Fine.
In every home, the foyer or entryway gives the first right impression of your entire home. It is perfectly fine if you do not spend a fortune or so much time in decorating your foyers. However, spending less time in finding the right foyer lighting can save your foyer from being overlooked. Since foyer is not truly a living area, people generally give less importance in illuminating or decorating it.
If you are using a pricey rug in your entry. Do what I do. Protect it with a small washable throw rug. Covering the spot most traveled on a daily basis. Then for special occasions stow the throw rug in the closet. Meanwhile, the better rug will stay clean. No space for a rug? Paint an interesting design on the floor. There are a wide variety of stencils that you can use if you do not consider yourself an artist. Be sure to use a sealer topcoat to ensure your painted design holds up to heavy traffic and will clean up easily.
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.
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.
