A well-designed foyer will instantly make you feel at home and will make your guests feel welcome. Working with a small room can be difficult since you don’t want your entry to seem too busy or crowded. There are several small foyer design ideas to explore if you are working with a small room – in fact 11.71 percent of entries are compact.

Focus On Functionality

If you are working with a tiny foyer, focus on features that will make the room functional. Look for pieces of furniture that are functional and help you create the effect you want. You can, for instance, replace decor with an original shoe rack or an ornamented coat hanger. If you have enough space for furniture, make a statement with a colorful cabinet. This will add a color accent to your small entry and provide you with storage room.

Make A Statement With Bold Patterns

Giving personality to your small foyer can be difficult if you don’t have much space for decor or furniture. You can make a statement by choosing wallpapers with a bold pattern. Think about creating an accent wall if you feel that using a bold pattern for the entire room would look too busy. If you would rather paint your walls, you can create an accent wall with a stencil or by simply painting a wall in a different color. An area rug with a distinctive pattern is a good alternative to using your walls.

Use Mirrors And Lighting

You can make a small entry seem larger by playing with mirrors and lighting. This will work best if you opt for a lighter color for the walls. Place a large mirror directly across from the door, and position it to reflect light. Let as much natural light as possible in your foyer, and add accent lighting if needed.

Make Your Door Stand Out

You can turn your door into one of the main decor elements of your small foyer. This will give your entire home more character and create a unique style for your entry without taking up much space. You can make your front door stand out with a bold finish color, but you can also frame it with furniture. If you want to draw attention to your front door, look for wall art with colors similar to the door finish so you can create an interesting pattern.
