If there was only one place to add wow factor I say let it be the foyer! These foyer ideas will do just that-Wow! 

Not every home is blessed with a grand entrance. There are so many ways to make a lot out of a little. It just takes a little ingenuity…








Let’s start with function in the foyer: In my opinion; every good foyer, to function well, should have a mirror to grab a last look before you run out the door (If you’re not blessed with a mudroom then the foyer must be more than just impressive), a place to hold your keys, a place to sit if possible to take off your shoes, a closet, hooks, coat rack,… to hang your outerwear.
