Don’t Forget the Foyer

Want to make a great first impression? Decorate your foyer. The foyer sets the tone for the rest of your home. It’s a reflection of your style and personality that also sets up your guests to feel welcome. Here are some tips to enhance and personalize your foyer décor.

Mirror, Mirror

Hang a large, decorative mirror to add depth and make the space feel larger. It also provides a practical element for last-minute checks before leaving the house.

Table Talk

Place a console table against the wall for a functional and stylish surface. Decorate it with a mix of decorative items, such as a vase of flowers, candles or decorative bowls. Place it near an outlet with a USB port to use as a charging station when you get home.

Art Gallery

Display artwork or create a gallery wall to add personality to the foyer. Choose pieces that resonate with your style and complement the overall theme of your home. Don’t have artwork? Frame a large section of wallpaper for a unique look.

Lay Down a Rug

Define the space with a stylish rug or runner. This not only adds visual interest but also helps to keep dirt from spreading into other areas of the house.

Have a Seat

If space allows, incorporate a bench or small seating area for putting on shoes or waiting for someone. Bonus points if there is a built-in shoe rack so people don’t track mud into the house.

Light It Up

Install a statement pendant light or chandelier to provide both ambient lighting and a focal point. Choose a fixture that complements the style of your home. If you are buying in Lago Mar, talk to your builder about your options.

Go Green

Introduce potted plants or fresh flowers to bring a touch of nature into the foyer. This creates a vibrant and welcoming atmosphere.

Stash Stuff

Consider functional storage solutions like a stylish umbrella stand, wall hooks or a small entryway table with drawers to keep everyday items organized.

Express Yourself With Color

Choose a cohesive color palette that complements the overall theme of your home. Consider the existing colors in adjacent rooms for a harmonious transition.

Emphasize That High Ceiling

If your home has high ceilings, draw the eye upward with tall decorations or tall potted plants. This makes the space feel grander and more impressive.

Cut Down on Clutter

Resist the temptation to overcrowd the foyer. A clean and clutter-free entryway creates a more inviting atmosphere.
