Modern Entry Foyer That Will Leave a Great Impression! / by Sharon Blaustein

Many people ask themselves how to create an entry that will leave a great impression. An essential part of any modern house is a modern entry foyer. Modern houses typically have large welcoming entry foyers where the staircase is a main component. An open style foyer will also provide glimpses towards the other rooms.

In this Scarsdale home, we transformed the gloomy entry into an impressive space that sets the tone for the rest of the house. Modern chandeliers crown the double height ceiling and warm wood floors keep the space cozy and inviting.

It's all about the first impression! When going into a modern house you want to create the feeling of Wow! A double height entry and cool modern staircase will do just that. In this home, we eliminated the old traditional staircase and created a modern open tread staircase with sleek glass railing.

You can only make a first impression once! A double height entry will leave a great impression on whoever enters the home. The abundance of light flowing in through the modern pivot entry door, sidelights and the open tread stairs all create an inviting, bright and welcoming atmosphere when you step into this lovely modern home.
