Before & After: Sabrina’s Front Foyer

by Grace Bonney

When I ripped out all of the old tile in our downstairs bathroom, I felt like a superhero. It was one of the most satisfying things I’ve ever done. It was one heck of a stress reliever and the end result was instantly cleaner and fresher than before. Sabrina of Pink Little Notebook knows how I feel because she recently made over her front foyer and replaced some outdated tiles with a bold, geometric style. Sabrina’s goal was to create something functional but modern and stylish. An entryway is the first thing people see in your home and I think Sabrina nailed that mix between design-forward and functional. Click through to read more about her process and the final look. xo, grace

Measuring and preparing for new tiles.

Measuring to extend the tiles into the closet.

Installing the new hexagon tiles. Sabrina chose a dark grout because the Canadian winters mean snowy boots and lots of dirt. The darker grout will hide those stains and dirt more easily.
6/8
Sabrina's foyer, After! The final result is a cool modern space that is both functional and stylish. The oversized mirror really adds light to the foyer and makes it feel even bigger than it is.

I love the shiny new handles Sabrina chose for the closet doors.

The hexagon theme continues to the inside of the foyer closet where painted shapes mimic the tile floor below.
