Many homeowners treat the foyer like an afterthought, but it’s one of the most important spaces in your home. It’s the room that gives your guests a glimpse into the rest of your home and sets the tone for your home décor. But more importantly, it’s the space that welcomes you and your family on your return home every single day! It needs to be a space that’s welcoming, has everything neatly organized and in its place, and creates a great first impression.
Get Started With Minimalist Foyer Designs
So, how do you go about creating the perfect minimalist foyer? A great way to start is by keeping it clutter-free and minimal. We’ve put together some minimalist foyer designs tips:
- Start by considering what you need to store in the foyer. A place to hang your keys is an absolute essential, as well as someplace to hang coats and leave your umbrella.
- It would be good to have a mirror so that you can carry out a last-minute check of your appearance before you leave the house.
- If you don’t wear shoes inside your home, you will need shoe storage and a seat where you can sit down to put on or take off your footwear.
- It’s never nice to enter a home that’s too dark, so plan to have good lighting in the foyer.
- Think of how your family is likely to use the foyer, and plan for that. That’s what will make the area functional for your home.
- Always think ahead and plan for some extra storage.
Once you know what your foyer should contain, you can create a layout that’s practical and stylish and suits your home décor theme.
Here are some ideas to for minimalist foyer designs that you’d love to come home to:
Eye-Catching First Impressions
Contemporary and chic, this foyer, with an exposed brick wall, uses a minimalist table and seat to set the tone of the home. Artfully placed flowers and picture frames create focal interest, while the coat hanger on a wooden pole adds utility. The grey ethnic rug serves to define the foyer space within the open room.
Do you have a shoe collection that’s the envy of all your friends? You’ll need somewhere to put them all, and this storage that runs the length of the room makes a good start! The minimalist console also houses a lamp and wicker baskets for keys and sundry items. Simple hooks on the opposite wall can be used for coats and jackets.
Elegance In Whitewashed Brick
Neat wall niches for artifacts, plain and simple furniture, and a no-nonsense layout that cuts out all the clutter are the elements that tie this foyer together. A ladder that leans against the wall can take extra coats when guests arrive. We love the leaf-shaped mat and the wholesomeness of the clean décor theme.
This foyer has a seating bench that could be folded up against the wall when not in use – a very practical solution for smaller spaces. A pretty unit in white is designed to take coats, hats and bags. The shelves below could hold several pairs of shoes. The small rectangular mirror opens out to extra storage shelves behind.
Stylish Small Entry
This tiny entryway proves that size does not matter! With a long mirror and hooks for coats alongside, seating for one and a rack below to store shoes, this stylish foyer has all that it needs. The fake fur throw adds a dash of glamour to this chic space.
Bold and masculine lines dominate this efficient entryway, which isn’t hindered by the lack of closed storage. The lengthy seat and open shelf modules below add practical function. The hanging wall shelf with hooks below is a handy spot for hats and coats.
Storage that’s Tucked into a Niche
The seating and storage are neatly tucked into a niche on one side of this bright entryway. The bold geometric rug provides a vivid contrast to the white and wood themed décor. Seating is in the form of pouffes that can be moved around.
Rustic Cabin-Themed Entryway
Sectioned off from the rest of the home by a flexible wooden screen, this foyer with panelled wood spells rustic charm. The pretty wickerwork chest opens up to store odds and ends and also doubles up as an extra seat. Grab and go items like handbags, hats and jackets all have their place on the wall unit.
Minimalist Touch of Class
The clean lines and all-white décor in this minimalist foyer are the last words in elegance. The sleek console comes with long drawers, and the artwork on the wall is carefully handpicked to match the décor. Various shades of blue add a subtle contrast.
