“Even the small porch is the first impression,” interior designer Peter Dunham said, who suggested a bold look for this part of your house even if it wasn’t too big, or even not technically the room itself. “The small foyer gives an ideal situation for high rust impact that will easily replace the lack of space by being luxurious and special.” The following small entrance ideas – and perfect products to see through – will turn your waiting room into a pleasant entrance no matter what size or scale.
Find a way to make a great first impression, even if all you have is a blank wall near the door.
1. Redefine Your Idea Of A “Rug”
Instead of runners, “carpet” your entry with inlaid mosaic stones. Say goodbye to shedding rugs!
2. Just Jute It
Add natural texture to a coastal entryway by installing a sisal rug on the wall. It’s fun but still neutral, alternative to wallpaper.
3. Proof Simple Can Be Elegant
You don’t have to make it too fussy an antique stool and lantern add elegance to a simple flyer. Try a mini console table for flowers, a lamp, and/or artwork.
4. Wake Up Your Entryway
If you’ve got a small foyer, take a risk with bold wallpaper. It’s eye-catching, but in a small space, it isn’t overwhelming. Then, choose small furniture so you can open the door and walk without bumping into things.
5. Choose Laid-Back Lighting
Yellow sounds scary, but when you only paint one wall, it can actually feel really sunny and bright. Counterbalance it with a bold blue chandelier.
6. Use A Designer’s Fave Accessory
Chinoiserie jars are the epitome of chic. Add a rustic touch with mini topiaries on your console table.
7. Get Wild With The Wallpaper
Instead of wallpapering the foyer alone, carry it all of the way up the staircase to make more of an impact. If you’re afraid of going too bold, choose a pattern in a neutral color.
8. Watercolor It Up
Even if you don’t have a beach house, you can turn yours into one by painting the entry seafoam. Then, sand and wax the floorboards for a more rustic look.
9. Add A Mirror
Aside from being a place to double-check your outfit before you head out, a mirror opens the space up and helps bring in more natural light from the windows.
10. Install A Hidden Cupboard
Storage hack: Add a secret compartment under the stairs. The false front is perfect for bikes, tennis rackets, umbrellas, etc.
