09 Sep Designing Your Foyer
The foyer is the first thing your guests will see when they enter your home. Just as important, it’s the first thing you’ll see when you enter your home. You want a foyer that impresses, but you also want one that makes you feel at home.
The question is: how do you design a room that fulfills all these needs? In this article, we’ll discuss some of our tips.
Consider Your Lifestyle
As important as aesthetic decisions can be, it’s just as important to take practicality into account. Before you decide what you want the room to look like, think about how you’ll use it. Are you and your family going to keep your shoes by the door, or will they be left in the closet? Do you like the idea of sitting by the door, or will most of your time be spent elsewhere?
Decide on a Light Source
If you’re coming home at night, the first thing you’re going to do is turn on a light. To accentuate the foyer’s first impression, you want to decide on a good light source. This is particularly important for foyers with high ceilings, where a chandelier can help fill the space. But even if you have a normal roof, you’ll want a light source that impresses.
Consider a Mirror
Before you leave your home, you probably want to know what you look like. This can allow you to make some last-minute adjustments to your hair, makeup, or clothing. Mirrors are perfect for this, and with the right frame, they can help make your foyer look more spacious.
Dimmer lights are perfect for foyers. They give you the option of bright light, but they also allow you to start with lower levels of light, as your eyes adjust from the darkness outside.
