Modern Foyer / June 20, 2018 / Gracie Satterfield.
Some say their foyer is so small, why bother with it at all? I have had others explain that their foyer is so grand that it feels cold and uninviting, no matter what they do to it. Whatever the size of your foyer, you should make the most of it! There is no reason in the world, why your foyer shouldn’t be stylish. The tiniest of foyers can be made to feel grand. Likewise, the grandest of foyers can have a sophisticated coziness.
In a small foyer maximize the light and make a tight area feel less cramped with a floor to ceiling mirror. Your foyer may be a tiny space with only a coat closet and no place to hang a mirror. So why not mirror the closet door! This will make your space appear larger. Depending on how your closet door is positioned, it may double a gorgeous view of the outdoors.
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.
A plant stand made of wood; wicker or iron with a luscious green fern is a gracious look. Why not use the foyer as a tiny art gallery? Designate an entry hall area or wall where you can hang paintings or pictures that are special to you. Hang a group of fine prints all framed the same. The prints will stand out more, if the color of the frames contrast with the wall color.
