A foyer is an entryway to a home. Often, the design and decoration of foyers are overlooked as they are considered to be just a passage. However, passageways are fast diminishing and many homes have front doors that open out directly into the main living area.
Foyers can serve as a buffer or barrier to the rest of the house. Instead of walking directly into the living space, you enter the foyer. In can provide you with a place to meet guests, remove shoes and coats. Some people may even use the foyer to introduce you the home's character.
