Modern Foyer / June 24, 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.
Sometimes foyers can be devoid of natural light. You guessed it! Add a mirror! It’s like having a window where there isn’t one. Thus, catching every trace of light, bringing the space to life! In any foyer there is nothing more beautiful than using a fine gilt framed mirror. Change out your old lighting fixture and replace it with a new chandelier. This will improve the rooms’ light and add charm.
Give attention to hardware in the room. The switch plate cover for instance should be attractive. This gives a sense of quality. Especially in the foyer. If you can’t afford to replace your switch plate cover that’s okay, just make sure that it blends in. If the walls are painted, paint it to match. If they are papered, well you get the idea.
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.
