Decorating A Welcoming Front Entry And Foyer.

It's the first room people see when they walk into your home. Your entry or foyer sets the tone for the rest of your home. Here are some warm ways to welcome your guests as they enter the front door. Give them a hint of whats to come inside.

A Grand entrance can be designed when there is a large foyer to add your personal touch.

Do you have a "shoes off" rule upon entering your home?


 Healthiness begins at the front door; remove your dusty shoes and pop them into the storage bench, not to track dirt indoors.

Tight on space and storage? Turn your coat closet into a very attractive entryway nook or find small narrow furniture to fit that space.

Even the smallest entry can serve as a pickup/drop-off station. A wall-mount console table fits right in this narrow space and the adjacent bench is a spot to lace up shoes before heading out.

Your entryway foyer should be warm, welcoming and speak for your home. Most importantly, make this space function for you and your family. Most homes must have accessories are an entry table to place mail and keys upon arrival - a mirror which allows homeowners to check their hair and makeup on the way out the door - lighting - a side chair or bench for putting on and taking off shoes - decorative pieces that reflect you and your home. Make a memorable first impression.
