Foyer Style: Grand Entrances
A great first impression can be hard to achieve, but not if your home has a well-designed foyer. From the front door to the artwork, the foyer sets the precedence for the rest of the home. It should fit the style of the owners without overwhelming visitors.
We’ve seen a lot of entryways. Families typically collage their walls with tons of pictures from their fun-filled adventures, bachelor’s mark this as their place to kick off shoes and throw keys, and empty-nesters are left wondering what exactly to do with a space that was used for so many years. Check out our ideas to revamp your foyer and turn it into the featured room it is supposed to be in your house!
The front door sets the tone for the entire home, so some would say it is the most important aspect of the foyer. There are so many styles to choose from at Builders Supply. We carry a variety of diverse woods and grains, so the choices are endless. Our AAW, Surplus, and Signamark doors range from traditional to standout, and can be the keynote in your entryway.
The eye of your guest is going to travel upwards–make them say “wow!” with a chandelier that is different from the norm! Mismatched pendants, unique colors, weathered metals–the possibilities are limitless when it comes to lighting the room. And the best part? Most fixtures are pretty green, so you won’t be putting a dent in your pocket with your beautiful investment.
You don’t want the precious space in your foyer taken up by bulky furniture. We suggest selecting storage pieces that are pretty and practical. There is no reason for shoes, keys, or bags to overwhelm the space when they can be hidden away in a bench or console table.
Reflecting the Details
Whether you are heading out for the evening or your visitors are just arriving, a mirror in your foyer can both serve the purpose of making the entryway seem larger and to check how you look! A mirror can also make for a prominent feature, depending on the shape, texture, and color of the frame.
