This is one space in the home that has to work for the whole household, but don't forget to have a little fun with it too!

When gathering entryway design ideas, think of this space as your home’s first impression. When you and guests enter your home, do you want your entryway to evoke a sense of calm and order or energy and excitement? Do you have pets with muddy paws or kids who need a place to put their shoes? All of these questions can help guide you when gathering foyer design ideas, and sequentially direction for your foyer design layout. Being that entryways are typically high-traffic areas of the home, durability is a must for any furniture and decor selections. You may want to consider area rugs that are easier to clean and can hide dirt. Additionally, a console table can be a beautiful addition to a foyer, and better yet, one has storage of sorts for keys, dog leashes, umbrellas and everything in between. An entryway will most likely be used on your way in or out of the home, so adding a mirror can be quite practical as well. A smaller entryway can benefit from a mirror even more so, as it will reflect light and give the appearance of a larger space! When gathering foyer ideas, you can also think of your home as a whole. Being that the entry is the first impression of your home, you’ll want to ensure that the style flows with the styles in the other rooms of your home.
