Our Favorite Custom Foyer Design Ideas


The lighting in your entryway design has the ability to set the mood within your space right off the bat. Natural light is always a great option for lighting, especially as something to consider is a home renovation. We can incorporate more windows for natural light in your custom design with Coastal Closets & Showers.

If improving natural light isn’t an option for your entryway, you might look to include a unique lap or light fixture. Adding these elements is a great way to spruce up the space while adding in better lighting!

Are you also considering a custom design for your bathroom? Take a look at this post for tips on designing your dream bathroom. 

Your Door as Decor

One of the best ways to incorporate some creativity into your foyer is with a decorative door. A door design is great for smaller spaces that are limited on room, or simply as a statement piece for your entrance. You can incorporate design and function all into one! 

Flooring Design

Another great example of design combined with function is flooring. Flooring doesn’t have to be plain; it can be used to add some personality to your space! Tile is a great option for adding beauty to your foyer. You can choose anything from marble to natural slate stone and use patterns to set the tone.

Wood floors can also be great! You can always try out some interesting designs with your wood floors and add a natural and welcoming look. 


Adding an interesting rug to your foyer is another great way to add character to your flooring. A rug can also help to differentiate your foyer from the rest of your home.

When choosing a rug for your entryway, consider whether it will be a main art piece or more of an accent to the rest of the items that you choose. Remember that a rug is also the first item that your guests will step on to when entering your home. Choose a darker color to avoid your rug looking dirty or look into one that is easily washable.

Wall Hooks

Mounting wall hooks in your entrance way is a great way to make sure that things stay clean and organized in your foyer. These can be used to store coats and jackets or umbrellas and bags.

Wall hooks can help to make sure that your guests know exactly what to do with their belongings and that you have thought about their arrival.

Wall Art

You might think that saving your favorite art piece for other rooms is your best bet, but incorporating wall art into your foyer can also be great for a first impression! If you have white walls or a more plain front entrance, get creative with adding some fun art pieces and adding an exciting element to the space.

Functional Furniture

While you will want your entrance way to be beautiful and welcoming, you will also want it to be functional. Look for furniture that will help you to stay organized, as your front entrance is often a space where people come to set keys down and take off their shoes and jacket.

Furniture that includes storage space, shelving or hooks is great for serving both style and function. You can also spruce up your space with a beautiful accent chair or side table.


Adding color to your walls, furniture and décor is a great way to make your foyer unique. It’s common to see neutral tones or black and white in entrance ways, so a pop of color can make a real difference in making your entrance stand out.

Whether it’s a splash of color in your art, a throw pillow, or an accent wall, color can be a great addition to your entryway!


Keeping family and friend photos around is a great way to make your home feel friendly and welcoming right upon arrival. You can make a collage to spruce up your entrance, or create a simple display of a few meaningful photos. Photos can also be a more inexpensive alternative to wall art! 

Plants and/or Flowers

Plants and flowers are known as a great way to freshen up any space, especially your custom foyer design. They can be a great accent to your console table. Bigger plants can also serve as a great addition to floor space.

Be sure to choose flower colors that will compliment the rest of the space. An extra perk: they will add a beautiful floral scent for guests when they first walk in to your home!
