Layout: everything in the name of convenience The entrance area is difficult to reschedule - there is usually a bathroom and a kitchen nearby, where each meter is on the account. Therefore, it is necessary to work with what is, even if it is just a small "tambour". Well, let's optimize the space and limit ourselves to only the most necessary ones in the hallway. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - The planning decision of the hallway is very important to think over to the smallest detail. We need to start planning by making a list of necessary items in this area: a cupboard or closet, console or dresser, ottoman or bench, as well as details - hooks, hangers, clocks, mirrors. Having decided with the necessary, proceed to the selection of specific options and arrangement. If the room is small, try not to overload it with trifles, all the maximum build in and clean.

Here in a hurry people gather on the way out, pouring in unfinished coffee. Touching the walls, new furniture is being dragged here. Shake off the snow and drops from the rain, children and pets. Therefore, finishing with persistent materials should be given special attention. 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 tile, porcelain stoneware. For walls I prefer to use paint, since in case of contamination the surface can be easily washed or tinted. Washable wallpaper - also a good option, so choose, combine, but do not forget about practicality, check all materials for durability and interaction with moisture. Bondarevadesign.ru 3. Lighting: more light Lighting affects both the perceived dimensions of space, and how easy it is to find everything in it. Do not forget that in the hallway you throw yourself in the mirror the last look before going out - it is important that you like what you see there. Another thing: the corridor borders on the living room and kitchen in many layouts, good illumination will visually increase and these rooms too. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - It is well-planned lighting can turn even a small space into a beautiful hall. The hallway, as a rule, is devoid of natural light, so it is necessary to think over several light scenarios. Combine the ceiling light and wall sconces, or ceiling light with table lamps on the console. You can make LED lighting, built into the cornice and pointing at the ceiling, and along the floor skirting let the hidden backlight in the wall. Fantasize, combine, but do not forget the main thing: there must be a lot of light in this zone. Bondarevadesign.ru 4. The choice of furniture To leave the house was painless, for everything you need to find your place. Think what's in your hallway? Where do you plan to store shoes, bags, outerwear, trivia? Is there a place where you can sit down to change shoes? A zone where you can leave notes, information, store invoices and letters? And do not buy furniture on a residual principle - everything should please, not annoy. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - The entrance area is demanding for good, quality furniture. It will be used every day, so do not save. If you can not organize in the hallway, then you need to plan your wardrobe well. The door-compartment is not the only option. If the door width of 50 centimeters does not cover half of the corridor, then safely choose the 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 please you with its appearance. Bondarevadesign.ru 5. Details and little things Nothing so reduces the useful area and does not make the room visually less like a mess. Leave in mind only the most necessary and pleasant. In addition, the fees will speed up the routine: every movement is thought out, every thing is in place, not a single second is wasted. This is the secret of an ideal hallway. Asya Bondareva, decorator and interior designer: - Think about the details, they will be able to make the space alive, interesting, intriguing. Mirror is an obligatory attribute of any hallway, but there may be several. Experiment: you can make a composition of mirrors on the wall. Find beautiful, different hooks - they will serve as a wonderful decoration, and also in the storage of things will help. Spectacular wall clocks in the hallway are both an excellent accessory, and just a useful object, so in advance provide for a long place. Rugs in the corridor - this is an inevitable evil. Try not to make an accent on them, it is better to choose not noticeable. Additional details, such as housekeepers, small boxes for small items, umbrella holders, should be used only if the stylistics of the room requires this, do not get carried away by the small decor in the hallway, it often creates a feeling of congested and cluttered.
