The first thing anyone sees when they come over to visit you is the entrance or foyer. It gives your guest a first impression of your home or office. Therefore, it will be of utmost importance for you to decorate in such a way that your foyer looks warm and inviting as well as impressive in terms of design. In this article, you will accomplish the task by following our tips and ideas below. Go through them now and know how to decorate a foyer with your own sense of style.

Decoration of basic foyer

First, clean up, prime, and paint the foyer entrance with a natural color that matches well with the overall style and feel of your home. If your foyer is located where it is closed from the rest of the house with closed doors or other barriers, you can experiment with the new colors, decorative patterns, etc.
Then you will have to make a decision about the entrance furniture you want to place in the entrance area. Some good examples are a console table with 3 drawers with a pair of tall slim lamps on both sides, a round hall table with a vase in the middle or even an upholstered bench with storage for gloves and hats in the cool months. Another decorating option would be an old beautiful antique dresser or furniture dresser with intricate hand cuts right in front of the front door.
Adding a cozy touch to the foyer's overall interior design can be as simple as an area rug or an inviting matte color mat. While buying a rug, however, make sure that it is designed with a rubber lining. Make or place a separate rubber card under the rug so that there are no movements or slips that could result in an accident.
The first part of the floor plan or design for your foyer has been mapped. You have chosen entrance furniture and placed the area rug with rubber cushion by the door. Let's get started on setting entrance furniture in the room for circulation patterns for people going through and general beauty. In the case where your foyer space is limited due to its size, it is a good idea to place a small crescent console table or console box against a side wall. For a wider than 9 'foyer, always consider a decorative round table located in the center of the room with ample circular around the table.
A little known design tip in the foyer decoration is to consider ceiling and floor lighting. Make sure the entire entrance area is well lit with no dark spots in the corners so that people entering your home do not stumble into at night because they cannot see. Because of this, the right choice is to hang a properly scaled chandelier over the center table or centered in the room.
Accessories with accent pieces, home decor and lamps are a very important part of the foyer's decoration, just like any other area in your home. Think of your favorite pictures or art for this purpose. When people come into your home, keep in mind that this is what they get for a first impression. If family is important, work in an image of the family with a professionally tangled and framed image that works with everything else. Another option is a long, sleek decorative mirror that will add to the foyer's overall feel and look and allow your guests to have one last look at themselves before their entrance.
Bringing nature into your home through the furniture of the foyer will serve as a good transition from outdoor to indoor decor. Aside from adorning the typical overall decor that everyone does, it would also be a good choice to use flowers and potted plants and furniture built with more outdoor features. So go ahead and buy some potted plants for your foyer.
Some general entry ideas
While planning your painting in the foyer, try using a combination of bold or dark colors to give the entrance more depth and comfort. Another decorative option would be to experiment with a new decorative faux finish technique on an accent wall as a backdrop for your artwork.
For more mood lighting purposes, add wall lamps or for a more modern look track lights on long narrow hallways. Be aware that track lights work if the parent highlights a wall used to display art or other home accessories.
While choosing entrance furniture for your foyer, choose the scale with care. While the furniture should be large enough to be visible, you may not want it to be the dominant focus of the room.
When choosing a decorative mirror for the foyer, there are two very good options.
