If you want your house to make a great impression, a great entryway is a must. Your foyer greets your guests and sets expectations for the rest of the house. A contemporary entry hall can give your home a light, open, and inviting feel. It’s out with the old and in with the fresh.

Contemporary foyers and the homes they lead to can feel like a clean slate. Perhaps that’s why more homeowners have contemporary foyers than almost any other style. In fact, over 20 percent of homes welcome visitors and owners with this style.

Many contemporary foyer design ideas use negative space and marginal design to leave a breezy feel. Check out our gallery to get inspired and start planning your dream entrance today.

What Makes a Contemporary Foyer?

Are you having a hard time putting the finger on what exactly it is that you love about these entryways? While each area is unique, there are a few contemporary foyer design ideas that define the genre. You can hardly go wrong with clean lines, dramatic dimensions, and lots of light.

Lines

A contemporary home is filled with crisp, easily-defined lines and sharp angles that please the eye. Instead of intricate designs, you will likely find straight lines or smooth circles. The shape is often minimalistic and airy.

In a contemporary two-story entrance, you can often see thin railing on the stairs instead of more intricate bars or a solid wall. Even the floor is all about lines; most contemporary entry halls have wood or wood-look floors.

Dimensions

Why have a regular mirror when you can have a giant one? That’s one of the driving theories behind the contemporary home design. When you choose décor and furniture for your foyer, go for pieces that make bold statements without a lot of noise.

Playing with dimensions can also mean mixing textures. Work with a combination of neutral colors, metals, stone, and glass to create a bold look.

Light

No contemporary entry hall is complete without light that fills every nook. Natural light is the first choice for lighting. However, if your space is not equipped with plenty of natural light, opt for recessed lights instead. You want the space to have as little clutter as possible, so chunky lights just won’t work.

It’s time to wow your guests with an entryway that makes a statement. Use these design ideas to create the foyer of your dreams.
