There’s nothing quite as impressive as a striking entryway. Be it a palatial villa or a cosy 1BHK, a well designed entrance is the first space to greet your family and friends. At Livspace, we believe the foyer design sets the tone for the home, and so we put in more creativity to make this tiny space charming, yet useful!

  • Modern: A modern foyer could be a part of a compact home entrance or even a larger one. The design is often minimalistic with furniture and features neutral colours.
  • Traditional: A dedicated space for a foyer is known as a traditional foyer. This space is furnished with a console table for storage, a mirror and some seating. 
  • Makeshift: A makeshift foyer is ideal for compact homes that don’t have a dedicated space for a foyer. Installing a partition in the living room near the door can work as a foyer.
  • Recessed: A recessed foyer is ideal for apartment flats. The space leading to an elevator or staircase is can be turned into a foyer by adding seating and some storage units.
