Everything You Need to Have a Practical and Beautiful Foyer

December 13, 2018
Everyone knows how important first impressions are. That's why we'll help you create a nice and practical foyer.

This is the place in your home that gives off a first impression. As soon as someone enters the door, they’ll get a sense of the lighting, furniture, colors, and aromas of your house. Because of this, having a practical and beautiful foyer is the first step to a beautiful home.

Keys to a perfect foyer

Tell me who you are and I’ll tell you what you need

The first thing to be aware of is your space. Some houses have large foyers and others only have a small area between the door and the rest of the house. Regardless, the most important thing is to be clear about your needs and make them match the rest of the decoration.

A beautiful foyer is key to making good impressions on guests.

If you have a large family, you’ll need to design a foyer where each family member can leave coats, bags, and shoes. If you have a dog, you’ll need a place for a leash. However, if you live alone, a small table for personal items may be enough.

Make it practical and beautiful

Create a space where the practical and the beautiful aren’t fighting with one another. You can take full advantage of the entryway with furniture with lots of storage, a shoe rack, or even a place to put coins you have in your pockets when you get home.

What you need

Even Feng Shui experts recommend it – put fresh flowers or plants in your foyer. This helps to cleanse the energy, attract prosperity, and, of course, it makes it look beautiful. A touch of color can give a playful atmosphere and bring you joy every time you come home.

Personal details

If you have a side table, you can use this to display personal items that make you happy every time you walk in the door. This could be a good place to put up a few photos that bring you good memories.

Take advantage of the walls

Even if you don’t have a lot of space, put up a coat rack. There are some cool and practical options that have space above to store things. These are ideal to be able to store coats, scarves, or even a bag. You’ll know where your things are and where to put them when you get home.

A coat rack is important for any foyer.

Versatile furniture

Having a bench or place to sit is ideal in a hall. You can sit down to take your shoes off or put things down when you come home with your hands full.

If you don’t have much space…

A floating shelf is perfect for small foyers. It hardly takes up any space and it’s a useful place to leave keys, cell phones, wallets… Put up a vase of flowers, a couple of pictures, and that’s it! You’ll have a practical and beautiful foyer.

Controlling odors

A smell can cause many emotions. When entering a house, we want a clean, fresh aroma to welcome us. Avoid artificial smells, as they often are overpowering. Instead, opt for scented candles or an essential oil heater. Besides making your house smell great, you can take advantage of the benefits of aromatherapy.

Candles can help your foyer smell great.

Let there be light

Lighting is one of the most important elements. You want to be able to see when you get home and also create a warm, welcoming space. Use a table lamp and candles at night to have a cozy atmosphere.

Magic mirror on the wall

Another favorite of any practical and beautiful foyer is a mirror. They create a sense of spaciousness. A gold mirror is a great way to stay on trend.
