Foyer Design:

See two versions of the same floor plan built in Raleigh, NC.

The first has an open staircase and two-sided overlook. The second has a built in carpet runner on the stairs and foyer side overlook. Which layout would you choose for your new home?

Foyer #1: Barrel vault, gray walls, archways

VS

Foyer #2: Barrel vault, beige walls, single archway

The first foyer feels more open with a double archway into the formal dining room. The second foyer leaves a wall for funiture placement in the dining and artwork in the stairwell.

Foyer #1: Two-sided overlook

VS

Foyer #2: Foyer overlook

A double sided overlook looks impressive from the front door. But keep in mind the trade-off you'd make with a two story great room.

By keeping the downstairs great room to a single story ceiling height, you're able to add a second story bonus room with loft style overlook.

Which version of this floor plan is your favorite, the craftsman staircase with wood steps or traditional staircase with carpet runner and rounded landing?
