First Impressions: How to Decorate Your Foyer or Entryway

Beautiful foyer

If you want to wow guests from the moment they walk into your home, you need to have a beautiful entryway. This will be everyone’s first impression of the interior of your home. Not only that, but who wouldn’t want to come home every day to be greeted by an elegant, functional entryway? Today in the Ellecor Interior Design blog, we’ll give you some ideas for decorating a foyer or entryway.

Storage

The foyer is actually a great place for some extra storage space. While storage doesn’t sound too stylish, it can actually be both beautiful and functional. If you have kids, you can add some built-in hardwood cubbies for them to keep their backpacks, shoes, coats, and more. As an alternative, you can have some hooks or a unique coat rack for you or your guests to hang their coats.

Brighten Up the Space

A bright entryway feels welcoming. There are a few ways you can brighten up your entryway. The best way is to get natural light from windows, so make sure to use sheer or light-colored window treatments. Of course, it’s also good to have some chic light fixtures to add a little extra light and create some variety in the decor. You can also use accent mirrors to make the entryway seem both brighter and bigger than it actually is.

Flooring

You can make an entryway more unique by implementing a patterned hardwood floor. Or, if you want to keep it more traditional, you can go with regular flooring and add an elegant runner to elongate your entryway and make it feel more like a grand entrance.

Decoration

Your entryway is the introduction to the rest of your home, so make sure it reflects your style. You can include some furniture in your entryway, like a comfortable bench or a side table. You should also add some wall decor, whether it be family pictures or paintings. Typically, with an entryway, you don’t want to make the decor too busy. Keeping it fairly clean and minimal will lend an air of elegance to your entryway without sacrificing your unique style.
