The Nest Q&A

How do you create a foyer when the front door opens directly into a room?


We’re glad you asked this question because it’s a problem in so many homes! You can create a foyer where there isn’t one with an open bookcase. Place the bookcase perpendicular to the front door on the side of the door that is exposed to your room. This creates a small hallway-like space. And you can decorate the shelves with pretty objects or books. If you feel your room is too small to accommodate a bookshelf, try an upholstered screen for the same effect.
