Elegant Modern Foyer

Turns out a foyer is hard to photograph. This one came with a floor made of thin, cheap laminate, and a builder-grade overhead light worth about $15. The lighting we chose was at first a joke, then as we considered it a great idea. And when installed it became the centerpiece.

We did this in mid-winter and trust me, cutting porcelain tile in literally freezing temperatures is quite miserable.

Here’s a tip on laying tile: plan your layout carefully. We planned the center row of tile to start at the door and come down the middle of the foyer, and then worked our way to the sides to achieve symmetry. It’s not something you notice, but if it wasn’t balanced you would notice that.

The finished product is much whiter than in these pics and I’m no tinting expert. So you’ll just have to take my word for it. It’s a solid white floor with a marbling pattern that is gray-brown.

-- Measure twice, cut once.
