Foyer Decorating Ideas
Decorating Ideas for a Small Foyer – Do you want to decorate your small foyer or a tiny apartment entrance hall? We found some stunning DIY small foyer interior design ideas and budget-friendly decorating ideas that you’ll adore.
Whether your entryway foyer is narrow or you have stairs, we found LOTS of ways to decorate very small entrance halls even if you’re on a budget.
Take a look at the small entryway and tiny foyer decorating ideas and pictures below.
✅ On a Budget?
Every home is unique, and every make-over budget is unique as well.
The cost of decorating your small foyer is influenced by a variety of factors, including your own taste and aesthetic, as well as the size of your entryway.
To make your small foyer or dark hallway brighter, warm and cozy, opt for warm paint colors to spruce up the initial impression of your home or apartment when someone first walks in the door AND to make that small space feel bigger than it is.
Here are some excellent entryway paint colors that work very well in small foyer hallways.
Choosing the right paint colors will brighten up and tiny dark boring space, make your home more comfortable and feel more like HOME.
TINY entryway – go with light wall paint colors to open up the space and make it feel bigger.
Larger foyers can go with darker paint color schemes.
Now, as I said, that is a “rule of thumb” but not an absolute.
You can absolutely use darker paint colors in a small space, but be sure to open it up with a mirror to give the room light and dimension.
Even a teeny-tiny entry hall can be decorated beautifully and appear bigger with a stunning mirror focal point on the wall.
As you can see in the pictures above, light paint colors DO make a small foyer appear bigger, but even using the dark wall color looks fabulous with a great entrance hall mirror on the wall.
Here are more foyer wall decor ideas I LOVE:
As you can see, there are many ways to spruce up your small entry area WITHOUT spending a ton of money.
You just have to find decorating ideas that work well with the SIZE of foyer space you have.
For example, I REALLY wanted a mudroom in my foyer entry hall, but I suffered from the age-old dilemma of “Too Much STUFF- Not Enough Space” so I had to readjust my foyer makeover plans to find something that worked for my itty-bitty entryway AND my itty-bitty budget.
Plus, when you RENT your apartment or home, you are probably limited as to what kind of redecorating you are allowed to do according to your lease agreement.
If you’re not allowed to paint, a large round mirror with a narrow foyer table might be the most you can do – and it can still look great!
Many apartments don’t even have THAT much space in the entry area and it might be a tiny awkward area to work with – meaning you almost have to FAKE an entryway because you walk right in to the living room.
Just do the best you can with what you have to work with.
