The tricky part is that the functionality and convenience in the place where the exit fees take place must be combined with some intrigue so that the guests are interested - what next? Difficult task? Not at all, in just five steps we will get closer to the ideal.

Layout: everything in the name of convenience The entrance area is difficult to re-plan - there is usually a bathroom and a kitchen nearby, where every meter counts. Therefore, you will have to work with what is, even if it is just a small "vestibule". Well, we will optimize the space and restrict ourselves to only the most needed ones in the hallway. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - It is very important to think over the planning solution of the hallway to the smallest detail. You need to start planning by making a list of items needed in this area: a wardrobe or dressing room, a console or a chest of drawers, a pouf or a bench, as well as details - hooks, hangers, clocks, mirrors. Having decided what is necessary, proceed with the selection of specific options and placement. If the room is small, try not to overload it with trifles, build in and clean everything to the maximum. bondarevadesign.ru Author - Olga Ievleva 2.Finishing materials It is worth thinking about the load that the hallway endures. Here in a hurry people gather to leave, pouring half-drunk coffee. Hitting the walls, new furniture is brought in here. Children and pets shake off snow and raindrops. Therefore, special attention should be paid to finishing with resistant materials. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - In the hallway, the main load falls on the floor, so I recommend such resistant materials as natural stone, ceramic tiles, and porcelain stoneware. I prefer to use paint for the walls, as in case of contamination, the surface can be easily washed or tinted. Washable wallpaper is also a good option, so choose, combine, but do not forget about practicality, check all materials for wear resistance and interaction with moisture. bondarevadesign.ru 3.Lighting: More Light Lighting affects both the perceived size of a space and how easy it is to find everything in it. Do not forget that in the hallway you cast your last glance in the mirror before going out - it is important that you like what you see there. Another point: the corridor borders the living room and the kitchen in many layouts, good lighting will visually increase these rooms too. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - It is precisely well-planned lighting that can turn even a small space into a beautiful hall. The hallway, as a rule, is devoid of natural light, so it is simply necessary to think over several lighting scenarios here. Combine a ceiling light with wall sconces, or a ceiling light with desk lamps on the console. You can make LED illumination built into the cornice and directed to the ceiling, and let the illumination hidden in the wall along the floor plinth. Imagine, combine, but do not forget the main thing: there should be a lot of light in this area. bondarevadesign.ru 4.Choosing furniture To leave the house painlessly, you need to find your place for everything. Think what's in your hallway? Where do you plan to store shoes, bags, outerwear, trifles? Is there a place to sit down to change your shoes? A zone where you can leave notes, information, keep bills and letters? And do not buy furniture on a leftover basis - everything should be pleasing, not annoying. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - The entrance area is demanding for good, high-quality furniture. It will be used every day, so it is not worth saving. If it is not possible to organize in the hallway, then you need to plan well the wardrobe. A compartment door is not the only option. If the doors 50 centimeters wide do not cover half of the corridor, then feel free to choose swing doors - they are much more convenient to use and aesthetically pleasing. Buy a beautiful console or chest of drawers, this item is able to set the right tone for the whole room and will always delight you with its appearance. bondarevadesign.ru five.Details and little things Nothing reduces the usable area and makes the room visually smaller than a mess. Leave only the most necessary and pleasant in sight. In addition, the routine will speed up the collection: every movement is thought out, every thing is in place, not a single second is wasted. This is the secret of the perfect hallway. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - Think over the details, they can make the space lively, interesting, intriguing. A mirror is a mandatory attribute of any hallway, but there can be several of them. Experiment: you can compose a composition of mirrors on the wall. Find beautiful, different hooks - they will serve as a wonderful decoration, and will also help in storing things. A spectacular wall clock in the hallway is both a great accessory and just a useful item, so make sure you have a place for it in advance. Hallway rugs are a necessary evil. Try not to focus on them, it is better to choose subtle ones. Use additional details such as key holders, boxes for small things, umbrella holders only if the style of the room requires it, do not get carried away by small decor in the hallway, it often creates a feeling of overload and clutter. bondarevadesign.ru Author - studio I.D.interior design Author - Ekaterina Vladimirova
