The entry way or foyer of your home is the first opportunity you have to make a welcoming impression on your guests. One way to discover some fresh new ways to enhance this area is to visit some new homes for sale. McKinney TX communities like Shiloh Lakes or Fairways at Craig Ranch have model homes that you can tour for decorating inspiration. Or you can try out some of these ideas:
Runner – Placing a runner on the floor is a great way to draw guests into your home. Just make sure to keep it clear of furniture, so the space has an open feeling. If you don’t want the hassle of cleaning a runner, you can always paint one on the floor instead!
Wall Displays – Engage visitors immediately with an eye-catching wall display. A few well-chosen art pieces are perfect, as well as a grouping of ornamental mirrors. If you’re feeling especially eclectic, try framing some unused pieces of wallpaper.
Wall Mirror – An elegant mirror positioned to catch the light can bring the sun into a darker hallway. It also creates the illusion of extra space by visually expanding a contained area. When choosing a mirror, find one that is in proportion to the dimension of the foyer.
Furniture – Give your entryway a cozier feel by tucking in a small table and chair. Add a table lamp to cast an inviting glow. If you’re using a slender console table, keep the lamp base slim so it doesn’t overwhelm the space.
Hooks, Racks and Bins – A back entryway can easily get cluttered with shoes, umbrellas, and mails. The solution? Install a wall rack with hooks and bins to hang jackets and backpacks, and include a bench with built-in extra storage space.
