First impressions, in my opinion, are the most important. It usually gives a glimpse about the person but not exactly telling all about them (never judge a book from its cover!). So, this being said, the same thing happens with your home/apartment. Your foyer (przedpokój) will be like the handshake and first impression of your home. So how you design it will set its personality and will give your guest a preview and what to expect of the rest! :)
Hope you all have an amazing day!
These are elements that are a MUST in my book:
1) A chair. Or a bench. The size will depend on the space available. This will provide a place where your guest will be able to sit and take off or put on their shoes (in Poland its very typical, it avoids floor scratches and exterior dirt). It can also work as a place for ladies to put their purse down while putting on their coat, for example.
2) A table. You might put some fresh or fake flowers. Also a tray for keys, mail, frames, phones or garage door remote. Who knows? Whatever you need.
3) A lamp. Put it on a timer. Wouldn’t it be nice to come back home and have it lit specially for you? The light will also create a cozy scene for your guest.
4) A mirror. Again, this will depend on your available area. First of all, it might make the place look bigger. Also, for sure it will come in handy to take a look at yourself once you open the door to your guests or before heading out. Your guest will thank you too, it will let them have a look at their outfit after taking off their coat and before leaving your home.
