Whether you pronounce it “foy-er” or “fo-yae” the entrance to your home is the introduction to your interior style. It should make a lasting first impression. If you are looking for a foyer to impress guests, you are in luck. It is doesn’t have to be a huge expense, as it typically a small space. Hire an interior designer to work with you on creating a foyer to leave a impression with guests. Read on for a few details that every impressive foyer should have and how you can make it happen.
Like the hostess at a restaurant, the foyer is the first thing a guest will see when they enter and the last when they leave. So maybe you don’t have a grand staircase to impress, but there’s a way to make an entrance way impressive. If you have a grand staircase, get some great flooring and feel free to ignore the rest of this blog.
- Great lighting is key to a great entrance. Big windows for the day and a great ceiling light for night will make an inviting entrance. A fabulous light or wonderful artwork/mirror can also be a main focal point in the foyer.
- Know your home. Keep to the colors or themes used throughout your house. Think of your foyer as a preview for what’s to come. Think first impression.
- Keep the foyer clean. This may seem like a no brainer, but it’s so easy to walk in the door kick off your shoes and never look back. Use a closet nearby as the designated shoe area for you and your guests.
- Don’t be afraid of texture. A fun rug or great tile can liven up a foyer; just remember to keep the rest simple, uncluttered and sophisticated.
Remember to have fun! Create an impressive foyer that reflects your style, personality and gives your guests a warm, lasting impression.
