How To Make An Entrance: Creating A Stunning Foyer Design


Make an entrance for your next home renovation with these stunning foyer designs!

First impressions do matter, and this applies equivocally to home interior design as well. Due to the fact that condo interiors and HDB flats in Singapore are getting smaller, foyer and entryway designs are considered as irrelevant and often neglected during home renovation, but this unassuming space plays a much more significant role than we think.

The foyer design serves as a transitional space between the main entrance and the private spaces of your home. Not only can it provide a varying level of privacy for the inhabitants inside the home, the foyer can easily become a messy decluttered obstacle without any proper functional storage, especially if you own an extensive collection of shoe wear or have a habit of leaving other smaller items or accessories near the entrance. While the foyer provides the first impression about your home for your guests, what matters most is that it is a space that greets you and your family when you come home every single day.

Looking for foyer ideas and inspiration to revamp your current main entrance? Curious to know what kind of foyer or entryway would be most suitable for you? Scroll down to explore the 5 types of exquisite foyer designs that would work wonders for your future home!

 

Farmhouse Mudroom Foyer Design

Transporting back to the traditional rural days in the 50s, mudrooms were more than a necessity than a fancy addition to the farmhouse home interior design. Identifying as one of the iconic hallmarks of an American farmhouse interior design, the gorgeous mudroom entryway offers a whopping three-in-one function – a extensive line of shoe cabinet, open shelving units for small items like socks and other accessories and a seating bench where you can sit and take off your shoes.  Traditionally, this ‘secondary entrance’ was intended to provide large storage and ensure the main areas of the home stay clean and tidy! Now, mudrooms are back in demand with the rising popularity of modern farmhouse homes that embraces clean organized elements of minimalist interior design and contemporary interior design. Other than its highly functional character, mudrooms evokes a warm, inviting and comfortable vibe in entryways that allures guests into the home.

Feature Wall Foyer Design

Why not create a bold visual statement right at the entrance of your home? As demonstrated by the foyer design in The Eden @ Tampines, one way to make an impact is to paint a striking accent wall in the color of your choice that best complements your foyer accessories, furniture pieces or home décor styling. A rich shade of dark turquoise blue splashes the feature wall to enhance the opulent oriental elegance of the modern chinoiserie interior design. This type of feature wall naturally creates boundaries between different living spaces using colors, which in this case gives clarity to where the entryway ends and the home begins.
