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.

The tiles now perfectly complement the overhead centerpiece really well. Looks like you still have so much room down there for a storage cabinet to add a bit more charm onto the walkway.

Nice project you have here. :) What caught my attention is the intricate chandelier. I fell in love with it and reminded me of a chandelier I saw in a hotel way back. I think it’s an essential part of any foyer. Do you agree? I’ve caught myself planning to include interior designing to my contingency plans, should I finally on whether to pursue it as a full-blown career or job. Do you consider the way the chandelier would reflect on the tiles when you chose this pattern? Would love to hear your feedback. Thanks in advance!
