They say first impressions last well beyond the moment and that you never get a second chance to make a first impression. The same goes for your home. Your foyer is the first thing that guests see when they enter your home.

Foyer Interior Design Ideas

While your foyer is your guest’s first impression, it is also the last thing you see when you leave and the first thing you see when you come home. If you are met with clutter and an uninspiring space when you come home, it can create stress inside you that you carry into the rest of the home. Create an inspiring and invigorating entryway that gives you peace when you come home and sends you off for the day with a fresh mindset. Learn how to make a lasting positive impression with these five tips.

Add Seating And Hooks

Putting some seating options in your foyer creates a great space to put on and take off your shoes. Put up some hooks to hang coats, hats, handbags, important keys, etc. This gives everything space, and you can display fun fashion items at home that are easy to grab on your way out. Incorporating a place to put on and remove shoes also keeps you from tracking dirt into the rest of the house. A place for umbrellas and raincoats will also keep rainwater from dripping, and you can grab them on the way out if needed.

Hang Focal Artwork

If you have wide walls and neutral tones in your foyer, you can incorporate artwork to create a more interesting space. By keeping it personal and purposeful, guests can get a sense of your style and personality as they come into your home for the first time. It is a way of stating who you are and who lives here.

Add Statement Pieces

Since the foyer is smaller, you can have fun with statements and/or themes. Use bold colors that suit the rest of your home but are too loud to use in other spaces. Feature striking geometrical patterns and prints that are dynamic to the eye to create a fun eclectic little space. By making this space fun and exercising your creative eye, you let the foyer serve as an energizing transitional space between the rest of the home and the outside.

Hang Mirrors

Mirrors are great decorative items. They often get overlooked when considering how to decorate a room that isn’t the bathroom or vanity space. They are especially great for small rooms like the foyer. Mirrors give the illusion that a space is larger than it is due to its reflective qualities. One way to incorporate mirrors into a foyer that creates interest is to pair a circular mirror with a rectangular furniture piece. Be it a bench or cabinet, the change in shape gives visual interest to the eye. Pick a mirror in a nice frame that ties into the foyer’s accent colors to keep it cohesive with the color scheme.

Showcase Antiques Or Collections

If you love thrifting or collecting, use the foyer to show off some of your finds. Combine the past with the new by mixing up antique furniture with modern art pieces. Do you have a collection of items that are special to you that you want to show off? Display your collection. This adds a personal touch your guests will love and allows you to admire the items you love each day.
