Foyers are typically spaces you consider when you’re regularly having company over—so yours probably hasn’t gotten much love lately.
But with COVID-19 vaccines rolling out and cities loosening restrictions, your entryway may be seeing more action in the near future. Is it worthy of welcoming guests?
If not, we’ve got some ideas on how you can whip that foyer into shape. Like we do, we’ve been poring over Instagram for all the latest decor trends and we’ve come up with these five amazing ideas for an instant entryway boost.
1. Frosted pendant
We all have some sort of lighting in the foyer, but this frosted pendant from @house_sprucing—which seems more like ceiling jewelry than anything else—is taking things to the next level.
“A frosted pendant gives your home a modern look with softer, diffused light,” says Andra DelMonico, lead designer for Trendey. “The frosted glass blocks the bulb, so your home still gets illuminated without glaring light.
“To bring this trend in your home, don’t get caught up on the frosted glass,” she adds. “Instead, focus on the rest of the light fixture’s design and matching it to your decor.”

2. Geometric mirrors
A lot of entryways have mirrors, but none quite like this trio of geometric bling from @delightfulll.
“One way to quickly update your entry is to add in a geometric mirror,” says Jennifer Burt of Mississippi Maximalism. “Postmodern styles—think ’80s organic shapes and gold brass details—is a hot trend that’s fairly new and will instantly update your space.
“Mirrors in an entry are perfect to make the space feel larger, plus you get a peek at your appearance as you head out the door,” she adds.

3. Two-toned entryway benches
Benches have become another popular staple of most modern foyers, but this one from @faithfully_home is an instant win with its two-toned charm.
“A bench in the entry is such a luxury,” says Burt. “It’s a place to sit and put on shoes, a place for guests to sit before heading out, and a place to showcase some in-season throw pillows.
“A bench that uses two colors or two different materials adds depth and texture to the space, so use these colors and finishes wisely to tie together the other materials in your entryway,” she adds.

4. Olive trim boards
Spring is quite possibly the best time of year to introduce a little more green into your space, but we have a feeling this olive detailing from @3acrehomestead will look just as good in any season.
“People are reevaluating their chosen color schemes, and sage and olive are becoming more popular as soft colors that add that desired visual interest and depth to your home,” says DelMonico. “They’re calming colors and easily matched with rustic, farmhouse, and homey decor. Combine this color with decorative trim, and you have a soothing color and appealing texture.”

5. Industrial cart table
For a nontraditional entry table that doubles as industrial chic decor, look no further than this cart table from @rusty_7s.
“A console table in the entry has become a must-have,” says Burt. “An industrial-style cart works because it can tie in many decor styles. If the rest of your home is farmhouse style, it will flow just as well as it will in a sleek contemporary space. Plus, if you have a get-together, the cart can roll anywhere in the home and double as a cocktail station,”
