Mid-century design is a cool, stylish way to create a welcoming foyer in your home. While many people say that they enjoy mid-century modern décor, they often have a hard time explaining exactly what that is. It’s a nebulous term that can mean different things to different people.

Because the term is so broad, it can be difficult just to create a new entryway according to what you see in mid-century foyer design ideas. However, if you learn the history and principles of this design genre, you can be well on your way to making it fit in your foyer.

History

As you can probably guess from the name, mid-century interior design began in the middle of the 1900s, around 1945. The architects who started this genre were primarily people fleeing from Nazi rule. As World War II raged on, builders and architects had to learn to work with new materials like plywood and steel.

After the war, the mid-century modern homes became all the rage. The large glass doors connected the outdoors to the inside of the home. The low windows sparked the imaginations of children everywhere. Now, decades later, some homes from the 1960s are even historical sites.

Design Elements

Mid-century foyer design ideas have a style all their own. Sometimes, it feels like stepping back in time. However, there are many ways to update a mid-century style to blend with today’s traditions. Whether you’re going for a classic style or something fresh, there are some features you should include.

Split Levels

A few steps between the entryway and the living spaces can create a mid-century look and feel. These split-level floors were popular from the mid-1940s until the 1980s. If your home doesn’t have one right now, you can find other ways to incorporate changes in elevation.

Playful Colors

Mid-century design isn’t limited to just one color scheme. If you want to paint your entryway a bright yellow, you can make that work in a mid-century home. If you prefer neutrals on your walls, go with some white and accent colors of your choice.

Function First

Mid-century homes don’t include a lot of frivolous decoration. Everything in your new foyer should serve a particular purpose in the room.

Flat Planes

While you certainly want to experiment with elevation in your mid-century room, each plane should be level. Chairs, shelving, and tables should be at one level and flat. Furthermore, sleek lines will carry your room a long way.
