Notably, your foyer is the space that gives your guests their first impression of your home, not to mention, your interior design style. But most importantly, it is the place where you begin and end your day.
This is why it’s important to make it a space that’s not only functional and efficient but also beautiful and inspiring.
To help you make the most of this oft-used, oft-overlooked space in your home, we’ve rounded up six foyer décor must-haves that will enhance both the style and function of your entryway;
Start With a Console Table
A table is a foyer essential. You will use yours as a place to stash mail, bags, and packages.
It also provides a surface to accessorize and place table lamps (also essential). If you don’t have room for a table, install a narrow shelf instead.
Create a Welcoming Space with a Rug
The moment you and your guests step through the door, you should feel welcomed and inspired. There is no easier way to do that than with a beautiful rug that speaks to your own tastes and personality.
Bonus: If you do not have a dedicated entryway, a rug helps curate a designated foyer space in your home.
Add Personality with Decorative Accents
Now here’s the fun part: styling!
Decorative accents like vases, sculptures, and vintage accessories add flair to your entryway and instantly give your guests a sense of your personal style. Whether you channel your minimalism or embrace your inner maximalist, you can’t go wrong.
Give Your Space a Little Life
Liven up your foyer (literally) with some foliage. If you would consider yourself a “black thumb” take style notes from the home of the women behind the über-inspirational blog ‘A Beautiful Mess’ and opt for plants that do not require frequent watering.
Lighting is a practical consideration in your foyer. We recommend bulbs with a soft glow to make the transition easy.
Lighting is also one of the simplest ways to make a stylish statement, so choose a pendant light or a table lamp that echoes your home’s aesthetic and sets the vibe.
Curate an Artistic Collection
Even if you do not opt to hang artwork on your walls, decorative accents can lend artistic vibes to your foyer.
A few decorative accents can create a welcoming environment that you will look forward to coming home to every day.
Hang an Oversize Mirror
For that last-minute hair and makeup check, install a mirror in your entryway.
It may actually make you later than you already are when running out the door, but hey, at least you will look your most presentable upon arrival!
