Creating a Grand Entry

Regardless of the size of your Foyer, every entry should be GRAND.

The entry is your welcome. It is your first impression. It is an opportunity to tell the story of who you are, what you are about, and establish a tone for your guests.

The following post covers the elements of good foyer design. I live and Colorado for most of my clients, the primary family entry is through the garage (and we love a good mudroom because of it). Consequently, the foyer is really for guests. Therefore I’m addressing it as such. If you live in a city, you may be the primary user of the front entry. These tips still apply, but you likely need quite a bit of storage as well.

Good Lighting

The obvious lighting choice is in the form of a chandelier or pendant. Something eye-catching is always welcome here. However, you also need to ensure adequate light levels for activities and creating a welcoming environment.

A Place to Set Items Down

Your guests will likely have something in their hands. The best guests come bearing gifts after all! At the very least they may have a handbag and a coat to remove. Give them a place to set these items down upon arrival. This can also double as a display place for your family treasures.

A Place to Sit

Not all foyers will be large enough to accommodate a place to sit. And in fact, the place to sit most often becomes just another place to set stuff down. However, if you live in a climate where weather may dictate a need to change or remove shoes, seating is a must.

A bench, small chair, stool… the forms are many, but the function is all that matters. A clever tick is to add the place to sit under the place to set things down.
