There’s no denying the beauty of these luxurious D.C. foyers. When I saw the headline’s promise of “fantastic foyers,” I just had to look!

And while these foyers are indeed stunning, it’s important to note that you don’t need a grand entryway to make a big impression on buyers entering your home. Want them to say “wow” and look forward to seeing the rest of the home? Make your foyer inviting. Here are some tips.

Paint: Give your foyer a fresh coat of paint in a neutral color. The color will go with the others in the home that you can see from the door.

Furniture: An unusual piece of furniture – like a table, dresser, bench or desk – adds interest to your foyer. Make sure the size is appropriate for your space. If the furniture is too big, the foyer will be cramped and cluttered.

Accessories: Go easy on accessories, and cut clutter like keys, mail, and shoes. Tuck these things away when your home is being shown. Attractive lamps, books, or flower arrangements are inviting, but remember that less is more. If guests think you’re foyer is cluttered, they’ll assume the rest of the house is cramped, too.

Art: Hang colorful, large art or a large mirror that can expand the space.

Details: If you have a bathroom that opens into the foyer, keep the door closed during showings. Every foyer should have a focal point, but it shouldn’t be the powder room.
