It seems to you that the hanger in the hall is enough for this place to be considered furnished? It’s enough at a push, but don’t be surprised that:
- right at the entrance to the house you see a mess and it does not encourage you or your guests
- you can’t find anything in the chaos, especially before you leave
- You are baffled by this view from the open living room, or every time you walk between rooms.
How can we change that? It’s time to arrange the hall. Arrange this space so that it fits with the rest of the apartment, creates a coherent whole, invites you to the interior and maintains order.
How can I control mess?
If you have space, you can arrange a small closed wardrobe here and hide spacious shelves and hangers behind the door. In such closed wardrobe you can store not only shoes and clothes you wear every day, but also those that you will only need in the next season. There is quite a lot of it, because each of the household members has a whole set for each season of the year.
A small space, most often a hall, needs to be furnished with an idea so as not to block the passage. A place to sit will certainly work. A bench connected to a cabinet for shoes is a good solution. You have your favorite slippers at your fingertips.
Be sure to think about hangers at different levels. The ones high for adults, those lower for children. Children like to be independent when allowed to do so.
You will also need a place for keys, a purse, a backpack. For all those last-minute pick-ups and those that we have to put away somewhere as soon as we walk through the door. Beautiful hallway furniture can be found here.
Accessories are important too. Pick the nice and practical ones.
An indispensable addition to the hall will be a mirror. Before leaving, everyone has something to improve. And mirrors can be really nice, with unusual shapes, in modern frames.
In order to see yourself well in the mirror, or to easily find a hat or gloves, you need light. So plan ahead the lighting at the mirror, in the dressing room and a cozy, inviting light throughout the room. It may be small, but full of nooks and crannies, and each of them must be bright enough.
Even though the hall is usually devoid of daylight, you can also place plants here.There are many species that don’t mind the lack of intense sun. Each of them will bring naturalness to the interior. It’s best to position them so that they are reflected in the mirror and give the impression that there are more of them.
Of course, apart from modern furniture with practical solutions and accessories, in this space you can play with the color of the walls and the texture of the floor. Neutral and less flashy colors will work here better. It is enough for our clothes to be the color spots here.
