Hello Friends and welcome to the foyer reveal of our Lake Waconia home remodel. Today we are sharing the makeover in the foyer. In case you missed you it you can see the remodel of the living room and kitchen HERE.
This home was built in the 1970’s and we purchased it from the original owners and let me tell you it had not been updated since then! The home has a split entry floor plan, which means when you come in the foyer you can either go up a short flight of stairs to the main living area or down the stairs to the lower level. Now lets take a look at the home remodel foyer reveal.
Here is the BEFORE
It was dark and dated with muddy colors and dark wood work.
And here is the AFTER!
We replaced the dated front door for an all glass one to let in more light.
We replaced the garage entry door and the closet doors to a simple shaker style and had them painted in Pure white by Sherwin Williams. The baseboards were also replaced and painted the same color. The walls were painted Alabaster by Sherwin Williams, for a fresh bright look.
It may surprise you to learn that we kept the same floor tile. Once the walls and woodwork were painted white the floor looked so much lighter and we were fine with it staying.
A new rug and accessories helped to freshen the space.
The stairs were redone in the same white oak flooring as the upstairs and new railings and banister really updated the look.
Shiplap on the stair wall brought in a fun design element. A new chandelier replaced the ceiling fan that was originally in this spot ( an odd spot for a ceiling fan if you ask me).
And here is a shot from the main level looking down to the foyer.
Shop the look (affiliate links have been used). Where the original item is unavailable we have sourced a similar item for you.
We had a lot of fun remodeling this little lake home and hope you have enjoyed the tour of the foyer remodel reveal. Feel free to leave a comment and we invite you to sign up for our newsletter to stay updated on our latest posts. We have some fun changes coming soon!
