It all starts with a great first impression, right? So why do so many of us seem to forget this step in our homes? It's true, our foyers get neglected. You may not use it as your main entrance if you have a garage, but this space is a fabulous opportunity for you to showcase personal pieces, articulate your style, or have a little fun. Take a look at these top 10 design ideas for your foyer.
Add depth and dimension to your home's entrance with a statement making mirror. This leather and studded option stands out in a rich brown hue, but there are endless options when it comes to mirrors.
Think Beyond Console Tables
Yes, console tables are perfect for entryways...but try thinking outside the console table box. We love incorporating interests and pieces with unique details - this sideboard features open storage for your favorite wine bottles and more.
Add a Sprinkle of Color
We say it time and time again...don't be afraid of color! If you are a bit timid about adding some bright hues, try this trend in the foyer. These coral tea tables are the perfect sprinkle of a hint of bright color.
Create an Accent Wall
Your home's entrance should be a place to have fun with design and an accent wall is always a great option. While this design has hit the nail on the head with a collage of mirrors, benches for seating, and a foyer table with fresh flowers...you can recreate this look yourself with mirrors, artwork, etc.
You'll often see chairs placed in entryways for easy seating, a comfortable place to wait, or just somewhere you can put your shoes on...or take your shoes off! Pairing a chair with a console table, lamp table, or even small chairside table creates a dynamic duo and completes your foyer's look quickly and easily.
Showcase Something Personal
You may not have a gorgeous set of trophies like this room shot but most likely you have some personal pieces that hold a significance in your heart. Showcase your children's artwork, your family heirlooms, or your prized collections at your entryway as a great welcome to any guest. Bookcases come in all shapes and styles!
As you enter your home you look to be greeted with great design and perhaps a fluffy family dog! Large entryways often benefit from tables front and center to hold fresh blooms, some stylish decor, and perhaps your favorite books! Try using round dining tables or lamp tables depending upon your foyer's size.
Wallpaper is no longer a trend from your childhood. We're seeing great wallpaper designs and options trending throughout interior design and what better place to test out a to-die-for design than your foyer's accent wall! Often a smaller location of your home, the foyer typically has the best small sized walls for wallpaper.
Storage is often an issue in homes and the entryway seems to quickly become cluttered with jackets, shoes, mittens, and bags. Vertical storage solutions can be an ideal piece for your home's entrance to help corral all the little things that get left to keep them organized and out of sight.
Eye Catching Light Fixtures
Great lighting is important in any room but take the opportunity in your foyer to pick something amazing.
