Enhance a small space with a simple vignette

If you have limited floor space to work with, choose a simple setup by opting for classic decor pieces like a framed print, one tabletop decor to tie the look together, and a candleholder. To save on space, you may also use a slim table or shelf.

Create a gallery wall

If you have enough space, you can be extra creative by displaying photos, prints, and other wall accents. Doing this gives your space a fun and quirky vibe. Aside from making the space look pleasing, you may also want to consider storage. Add a cabinet or console where you can put plants on  display. The cabinet space may be used to store shoes, slippers, and other essentials.

Add an inspiring quote

Make guests feel right at home by showcasing an inviting quote or phrase. Feel free to doodle and draw! As an added purpose, you may also turn the wall into an instant blackboard using chalkboard paint. Turn your foyer into an instant messaging station where family members can leave messages and reminders.

Aside from a cabinet, you may also add a piece with drawers and an open space underneath so you can add more baskets and containers for additional storage.

Keep it simple with well-curated wall accents

If you only have a corner to work with, liven up the space by opting for coordinated wall accents that can catch the attention of guests. Add a refreshing touch by putting plants on display.

Create a functional corner

A small corner by the door can be transformed into a functional area! You'll need a couple of hooks—where you can hang keys; a small console table—for storage; and a couple of simple yet chic decor pieces. Opt for a country, laid-back vibe by going for wooden pieces that will surely add warmth to the space.
