Few house owners can say that they have a large hallway. But that must not sound like an excuse that you neglected the corridor. The modern trends are there to make the most of such a small ambience.
It is still obligatory that the hall serves as a kind of business card and gives a correct first impression of the apartment.
The floor plan
Most corridors show an oblong rectangular floor plan. These are usually too narrow to place larger pieces of furniture there. You have to be really smart and creative to accommodate everything you need. Here are some proven in practice rules of thumb to help. Here you are:
No matter in which style the apartment is furnished, the hallway should look minimalist. In order to harmonize well with the rest of the house, you can introduce various great decorative elements.
Above all, the external appearance should be minimalist. The freestanding hangers are not really up to date at the time. They would rather be hidden behind screens or within built-in dressing rooms.

Avoid the use of furniture that is too wide
Although you want to make sure that all shoes and clothes are hidden in the hallway, you should not necessarily bet on over-ready furniture. These reduce the space visually all the more and make it look very dark. Rather put on built-in wardrobes, which show a width of not more than 50 cm.
Distribute the furniture correctly
However convenient the built-in furniture should be, we do not recommend covering an entire wall with it. Even if you use a mirror, the hallway will look much too narrow. Two-thirds of a wall is enough space for wall-mounted wardrobe in the hallway. After all, you can also store your shoes and clothes elsewhere if, for example, they are not used in the specific season.
Be sure to leave room for a chest of drawers with mirrors. It's best to have some drawers where you can stow small items you often need before leaving the hall.
You may know by now that according to the Feng Shui rules the mirrors are not allowed to look at the door?
Subtle wall murals give the corridor more comfort
The mirrors we have mentioned here several times. But they deserve special attention. Mirrors and mirrors are an obligatory part of the modern-style hallway. They have a wide selection of shapes and sizes. That is why these elements are a great way to bring out your own individuality in the hall design.
Such a small room with such great importance - that's the modern hallway! But there is much more that could be written about it! Learn more about this topic in the second part of our article.
