Try focusing on making functional foyer items stylish. For instance, if you don't have a coat closet, try a funky hall tree. In addition, a console table or bench can add flare to your foyer, while maintaining function. These items are also a good way to add color to your entrance, making your home look more inviting.
In addition to functional design, welcoming lighting is also important for your foyer. Try a chandelier or lantern to brighten your entrance and welcome guests into your home.
