How Can Mirrors Be Your Best Friend In Your Foyer?
Mirrors have always been a part of many homes, whether it is in the bathroom, bedroom or foyer. And everyone agrees that the foyer or entryway is a good place to have one. Mirrors help make the house more comfortable as well as adding a unique touch to space with the size and frame. Playing with different mirror styles and sizes help make the foyer and your home memorable. Especially since the foyer is often a heavy traffic area and needs to be updated.
Because of how customizable mirrors are, they are becoming popular in the average home. Since you have the option to change the size, dimensions, trims, and shapes of mirrors they become remarkable accents. By placing a mirror in your foyer, people can check their appearance in it as they enter or leave the house. It adds more light and makes space feel larger than it is. They also add a cozy feel to the room and your home.
Playing With Mirrors
When looking for a mirror to add to your foyer make sure that you take time to look at all of the options that are offered and make sure to select the mirror style and size that is right for your home. Here are some suggestions to help get you started in the right direction for your home.
- Oversized Mirrors: These types of mirrors are great if you want to make a dramatic statement.
- Frame the Mirrors: While there are many styles to consider with this option. It is essential that you look at all of them or as many as possible to make sure that you pick the right feel and look for your home. Whatever your look is, framing is a great way to help define your mirror and make it work in your home.
- Multiple Mirrors: If you don’t like the look of having one oversized mirror, then using various mirrors, with frames, is an option. By placing the mirrors in a collage-type setting on the wall, it adds a fun element to space. While still giving people a place to check their appearance and making the area feel more substantial.

By placing an oversized mirror or multiple mirrors in your foyer, they can reflect the natural light that comes in from nearby windows. Mirrors also reflect the artificial light from light fixtures. By intentionally placing a mirror or mirrors near lamps or ceiling fixtures they will better reflect the light. Especially once the sun sets and all of the natural light has left. A foyer is an excellent place for a mirror to catch the light from outside as well as the light from the fixtures.
