25 Entrance Foyer Design Ideas for Contemporary Homes

Most people take an entrance foyer for granted unless they’ve lived without one.

In our last home, the main entrance to our home was our kitchen.  And I’m talking directly into the kitchen.  Our son was born in that home which meant whenever we brought the stroller into our home, we wheeled it right on through our kitchen.  Then there’s the lack of shoe and coat space which can quickly clutter the entire space.

Our new home has a large entry foyer where we have space for a coat wardrobe, shelves, hooks and seating.  It’s a feature we really appreciate having lived without it.  Even a smaller entryway, such as a mudroom, can add that extra convenience.

Interestingly, we aren’t alone.  One of the most common complaints home owners have with their existing homes is a lack of a dedicated foyer space.  We love watching renovation and home-buying TV shows and the foyer is often in issue… such as requires more of one or when house hunting, dazzling prospective buyers with a grand one.

While a large foyer may seem excessive, and perhaps some of the grand foyers below are excessive, they serve a great purpose for any home.  Below is an extensive gallery of 25 pictures of foyer designs of contemporary homes.
