8 Foyer Color Examples

1. White Foyers

A white foyer will make a great impression on your guests. This neutral tone evokes cleanliness and there are plenty of ways to dress up a white design for your foyer. You can make white one of the main design elements of your foyer if you want a clean and modern look. The key is to have different white textures for your design and to add some reflective surfaces to evoke cleanliness. You can create a very modern feel with some glossy white furniture with minimalist lines, some white paint with a satin finish for your walls and a large accent mirror to reflect light. This modern white look would be a good way to brighten up a small foyer that doesn’t get much natural light.

2. Gray Foyers

Gray is one of the most popular tones for foyers. This is a popular wall color since neutral tones are easy to work with, and you can combine gray with any accent color you like to give your foyer more personality. If you want to start with neutral tones to draw attention to other design elements, cloud, silver, or coin gray would be good choices. Think about painting your walls in one of these hues if you have white wooden panels or white furniture. You can work with other shades like pewter, slate or lead gray if you have chosen a marine-theme for your foyer. These hues will work as darker accent colors if you have some blue in your foyer design. You can also combine darker hues like charcoal or smoke with rich colors like wine red or emerald green if you want a foyer design that evokes luxury.

3. Green Foyers

The color green is an interesting choice for an entry because it creates a connection between the nature you can see outside of the home and your interior decor. You can brighten up a modern foyer with neutral tones by adding a few green accents. Tinted glass is an excellent choice since it will reflect light while adding some colorful touches that evoke nature. If you have a table with minimalistic lines in the center of your foyer, use it to display a green vase! If you have a modern cabinet in your foyer, paint the drawers in lime green and the rest of the cabinet in white.

Red is a very versatile color that can set a traditional, romantic, or modern tone for your foyer. A few red accents will make a neutral entry more lively and choosing red flooring or red walls will make the entire room warmer. This isn’t a common color for entries since only 0.98% choose red for their foyer wall colors, which makes red a good choice if you want a home that stands out.

5. Black Foyers

A black foyer will create a very modern effect in your home. You can choose to work with black as your main color or use it as an accent in a foyer with neutral tones. Painting your foyer walls in black is a bold move, but you can create a stunning effect if you do it right. If you want monochromatic black walls, choose a paint with a glossy finish and add some accent lighting so the light will reflect on this surface. You can also create a luxurious effect by using matte graphite paint and adding a marbled or mottling effect.
