Repair of the hallway: how to make a small room functional and beautiful

Acquaintance with the house begins from the hallway, thereforeit is impermissible to neglect its design. But in the interior of tiny modern hallways, it is so difficult to combine functionality and aesthetics. Our advice will help you solve this problem.Most people are inattentive to the design of the hallway, motivating it with its unpromising (from a design point of view) tiny dimensions, as well as the fact that such a room is a walk-through and is not intended for a long pastime. However, psychologists say that a person's first impression of what they see is formed in just a few seconds. This means that the time during which your guests will take off their shoes is enough for them to form an opinion about the house and its inhabitants. Today we will allow ourselves to give our readers some useful and practical advice that will help to adequately decorate even an indecently small hallway. No bulky furniture sets. Ideally, closets should be replaced with open hangers, wall shelves, and a shoebox. Such a minimalist set saves space and stimulates the maintenance of order in the hallway. A small cabinet up to 45 centimeters deep with open sections (without doors) is also welcome. Use the corners. Angular furniture takes up much less space and allows you to use those centimeters of the area that are usually left without attention. For easy installation and maximum space saving, choose models without a rear wall. Hang the mirror. In the hallway it is just necessary. First, you can always admire what you look like, and secondly, a large mirror on the wall will help visually expand the space. If the hall does not have a suitable place to hang a mirror, make a choice in favor of a cabinet with a mirror wall or door. Consider a storage system for your shoes.It is usually carelessly spaced shoes that cause clutter in the hallway. To avoid this, it is necessary to move away from the stereotype according to which shoes and boots should be placed exclusively at the bottom. Use for storage not only floor cabinets and boxes, but also wall shelves, side racks, hooks. And if you want to hide your shoe riches from prying eyes, baskets or decorative boxes will help you. Choose the right color. It is obvious that the small and natural light-impeccable hallway is best suited in light pastel colors. However, dark colors should not be ignored. They can adjust the geometry of the room. For example, in a narrow elongated hallway it is recommended to make the longitudinal walls light, and the transverse ones (usually the entrance door and the interior door) are darker. This technique will save you from the feeling of moving walls. Do not skimp on lighting. Since natural light usually hardly penetrates into the hallway, you need to replace it with an artificial one. One light source is unlikely to be enough. The minimum set for a small hallway should consist of several luminaires with a light directed to the ceiling (they will visually lift it) and adjustable illumination of the mirror (it is installed from above to avoid distortion of reflection). It is not superfluous also to equip open shelves with point light sources. Pinterest.com lingatour.com allwaysdesigning.blogspot.com thehandmadehome.net restoredstyle.com haybert.com
