Incorporating a Foyer

Many homes do not have a foyer built in and that factor can be a downside for many homeowners. The foyer marks the entrance of the home and gives household members a place to put coats, shoes, and backpacks. If you do not have a foyer in your home, all you need is a little imagination and some extra space. Incorporating a foyer will be perfect for storing your belongings and welcoming your guests.

 

How to incorporate a foyer in your home:

  • Add stylish organization. A foyer’s purpose can be best served when it is organized well. Optimize the area’s space by including stylish furniture pieces to help keep everything organized. Small dressers, chests, or tables can be functional and stylish in the foyer of your home.
  • Involve your walls. Walls are not only great for decor, but they are also perfect for storage! Homeowners should take advantage of this space by including coat hooks, wall cubbies, and a mail bin.
  • Provide a space for each family member. There is nothing more frustrating than not having a specific place to put all of your belongings. Everyone has their own coats, shoes, and mail so why not give them a particular place to put it all? Dividers can be the perfect solution for storing everyone’s belongings all in one place.
  • Make it functional. Make sure to provide a place to hang your car keys, place your shoes and put your coats. A foyer can be decorative, but its best purpose is storing items. Make sure to use this space that you create and not only place decorations around it.
  • Decorate with a passion. This is your chance to add your personal touch to the foyer. Add pictures, plants and props to spice up the area and add charm to your space. Remember, decorations should come after you have a place to put all of your essential items.
  • Provide warmth. A foyer is the first part of your home that guests will see; therefore, you should make the foyer cozy. Add candles and a small rug to incorporate warmth and style into the small space.
