Art for Foyer Space
If your home has a foyer, then chances are you understand the importance of making a first impression. Foyers are traditionally open rooms that greet anyone who enters the building through the front door. It is the room that allows you to immediately show off your style and personality to everyone who walks through the door. That’s why it’s worth taking the time to find the perfect art for your foyer.
One of the first things to consider when buying art for any room in your home is colour. Every object in a room should work visually with the pre-existing colours. You don’t want to hang up a painting that looks great on a white computer screen but ends up looking ugly when hung up against your wall. Before shopping for art, you should go into your foyer and pay attention to the colours that already exist. The floor, the walls, the ceiling, and all of the wall artworks already hanging up an help inform your final purchase.
When people think about buying art for their home, they usually focus on two-dimensional art like paintings and drawings. These are always solid choices, but you should also consider what a high-quality sculpture can do for your foyer. Usually, people are hesitant to purchase sculptures because they worry about how it might interfere with the life that happens inside of the room. The good thing about the foyer is that people don’t tend to linger in it, they enter the room and fairly quickly move on to the other rooms in the house. This means that you can go wild choosing a dramatic piece of three-dimensional art.
Think of the Impact
When you live in a home for a long time, it’s easy to forget about the choices you’ve made as you’ve decorated it. But people who come into your foyer for the first time will be experiencing it with a completely new outlook, and the way they view your home will impact the way they view you. So take some time to think about the impact you want to make and then pick art that will help make your intended point. If you want to look fun, then bright colours can clue people in. If you want to keep a low profile, then subtle and classic colours like black and white are the conservative way to go. Think about how you want people to view your home. If you know the answer to this question, you’ll have an easier time finding the art that will project the image you have in your head.
