Niche Interiors Blog: Inspiration and advice for creating a well-designed home← Back to the Blog Home Page
The foyer is the hardest working room in the house! Not only does it set the style for the rest of the home, it provides storage, organization, and a place to primp on your way out the door. Use our cheat sheet to make sure you have all your entry essentials covered.
Lights On. There is nothing worse than a dark, gloomy entry! Provide ample lighting with a pendant or table lamp. Consider wall sconces if you’re tight on space.
Slim Storage. Create a catch-all zone for mail and keys. Look for console tables with drawers, small dressers or wall mounted cabinets.
Mirror, Mirror. Prevent wardrobe malfunctions by hanging a mirror by the front door. Added bonus: Mirrors reflect light to make your space appear bigger and brighter.
Take a Seat. If space permits, include an ottoman, bench or chair to take shoes on and off. Try tucking one or two ottomans under a narrow console table as shown above.
