An Instant Way To Make Your Ceiling Look Higher

Did you know that you can trick the eye with colours?

This kitchen trick works great with low to standard height ceilings. If you paint the base cabinets in a dark colour and a light colour on the upper cabinets it visually lifts the ceiling. We recommend using a lighter colour on the walls and ceiling as well.

Create the foyer you want…

4 tips for creating a gorgeous foyer

1. Try painting your foyer a different colour from the rooms adjacent to it. Warm colours appear inviting and cool tones can create a calming space.  A scrubbable paint is perfect for foyers and hallways, when people come into your home they usually lean against the wall and take their shoes off.  Try our Aura paint in either an eggshell or matte finish.

2. Lighting is very important in the entrance way, make sure there is adjustable brightness. Not extremely bright, but well lit and welcoming. For a big dose of drama and high style opt for wallpaper and a large lighting fixture that makes a statement.  A very important touch is to always add a plant of some kind, to bring in oxygen and new energy. Keep this room always feeling fresh.

3. Hang large mirrors, this will give you a preview of rooms to come by reflecting attractive features of an adjacent room.  They will also increase the space and reflect light.  We have some amazing mirrors, come into our store today and check out our decor items.

4. Create a Wall of Life, you could display a gallery wall of artwork, photographs or showcase a beautiful piece of artwork/sculpture on a foyer table.
