Fun Foyer Ideas

A foyer is meant to be a formal entrance way into a home, meant to welcome your guests & also to be a functional place for storing coats, shoes, keys, and all of those other items that seem to always make their way to the side of your front door. Since it is the place where your guests take in their first impression of your home, wouldn't you like it to be love at first site?

Here are a few ideas on how to make your foyer be an unforgettable one:

An attractive collage of family photos will make your entrance feel like an inviting and comfortable family home that anyone would feel welcome into.

Vintage pieces of furniture and decor give your entrance an interesting touch. Bring colors are an extra bonus and only add to the character of the pieces.

Adding a floor mirror and leaning it against a wall a slight slant not only adds a touch of class to your foyer, but also gives the illusion of a bigger space to small entrance ways.

Patterned wallpaper adds appeal to your foyer without also having the need to add to much more decor to the room. A simple table with a lamp or chair will do.

Living in an area where it snows, is more rustic or simply having children can make it hard to keep your homes entrance clean, tidy and appealing. However you can easily turn your foyer into a cute mudroom by adding a rustic bench, matching coat hangers and a funky, tribal print rug to add to the rustic look.

Make pretty tables without cabinets functional by adding a pretty box underneath the table in order to hide items that need to keep hidden. But don't be shy to show off some of your pretty items, such as that new Chloe bag or funky Miu Miu heels.
