Q & A: How can I transform this old and boring foyer. We just purchased this century old home that needs a lot of TLC. I have 4 kids so need storage and my favourite colour is green, would that work? Thank you, Sarah J from Mississauga,ON Hi Sarah, Your foyer has so much potential. We suggest some custom built-ins to maximize your storage, seating and a few hooks for jackets, etc. A tile floor would be much more practical as well, perhaps a dark slate palette. By painting out the inside of your front door in a deep charcoal will create a focal point as well. The photo of this foyer below is painted in a nice gray green tone and paired with creamycabinets.
