With just a few design tricks, you can easily fake a foyer in your home. It'll add something extra when you walk through the front door and make the area look bigger! House Beautiful shares the following tips.
- With a small entry way, you can get away with a bold wall. "Patterned wallpaper adds definition to a meager foyer and yields instant personality that might overwhelm anywhere else."
- Add some hooks and a bench to your entryway wall to make the area feel complete. As long as you've got a place to tie your shoes and hang your coat, even the tiniest entryway will feel complete.
- The easiest way to make the space look big? Mirrors! "Strategically hang a mirror to make the space feel twice as large."
- "Instead of placing your photos and art sporadically around the room, cluster them together" to define the entryway as its own area.
- Add eye-catching storage to your entryway with a stack of cubbies to help organize shoes, hats, and scarves.
- A skinny console will fit a tight space for an area to drop your keys and at the same time will add some style.
- Add color to your entryway. "A single accent hue gives a barely-there entryway some extra oomph, making it feel like a thoughtful, fully designed room."
Although there may be areas in your new home that look small, you can actually do so much with them and make your home look even bigger. To see photos from House Beautiful, click here.
