Updating a home's foyer can improve visitors perception of property

Posted on Thursday, May 16, 2013 at 12:10:11 PM

Aside from a house's curb appeal, the first aspect of a property that visitors notice is often the look and condition of a home's foyer. While many individuals obtain home improvement financing to enhance their bedrooms, kitchens and bathrooms, significant cosmetic improvement to a house's main entry way can greatly affect the perception guests have of the property upon arrival. 

Homeowners hoping to improve the appearance of their foyer may benefit from incorporating the following design elements and characteristics into their property. 

Practical storage solutions
Depending on the size and layout of the entryway, homeowners may want to consider incorporating a number of hooks and shelves which can be used to store jackets and keys, among other items. For added effect, adding a few lighting fixtures can brighten up the space and make it easier to find objects.

Washable flooring material
As seasons change, a significant amount of outside dirt can make its way into homes, and possibly mess up entryways' flooring. Due to this fact, it is generally a good idea to avoid having wall-to-wall carpeting in a foyer. Great alternatives for flooring are linoleum, tiling and hardwood - as they can all easily be cleaned. 

Those looking to update the look of their house's entryway can find the funds necessary through home improvement loans from Home Loan Investment Bank, a trusted lender which has helped thousands of consumers make effective changes to their property.
