How much truth is there in the expression “the first impression is what counts.” The hall welcomes us; it is the prelude to what we are going to find in the rest of the environments. It should be aesthetic, warm, and personal. No matter how small, there is always a solution: the purpose is to create a comfortable and welcoming passage area, without neglecting functionality.
EQUIP THE RECEIVER WITH A PRACTICAL SIDEBOARD
Although it is not an unbreakable rule, the style of the hall must be consistent with the line of the living room, since it is the area of the house that is accessed when entering this first space. Look for elements of the union -such as color or furniture-, even if you vary the accessories. Sideboards and dressers are very appropriate furniture in larger foyers. Its multiple drawers and compartments will allow you to organize everything from bags and shoes in their boxes to documentation in folders. This natural wood chest of drawers with ceramic drawers and handles is from Bloomingiville. Its measurements are: 0.71 x 0.25 x 0.77 cm.
LIGHTS IN THE RECEIVER
The distributor usually lacks natural light and receives it from the living room or from some other room with which it communicates. Therefore, it is essential to pay attention to artificial lighting. Choose a table, floor, or wall lamp that provides soft and pleasant indirect light. Have you thought about what colors to choose to decorate the hall? In addition to maintaining a harmonious line with the rest of the house, it is advisable to opt for neutral, white, gray, or pastel tones for the walls. These colors reflect light and do not saturate the space. You can combine them with more intense notes in the accessories. Open console with drawers, in 1.20 x 0.50 x 0.70 m.
A PRACTICAL BENCH AT THE ENTRANCE
The decorative effect of the seats is attractive. It is a useful surface to leave your bag on when you get home or when you are about to go out and to put on comfortably. Take the opportunity to place under the chair or bench some decorative baskets with hats, gloves, and scarves. Another function? Keep your home slippers in them. Baskets, similar for sale in Casa.
IN SMALL RECEIVERS, OPT FOR SHELVES
The first thing we need to leave when entering the house is the keys. Always keep them in the same place and you will have them located. A key holder, a pocket drain, or a nice hanger. How many are you in the family? Add a different hanger for each one.
CREATE BEAUTIFUL CONTRASTS IN THE HALL
Choose an element that stands out on a very neutral base, even if it has a different style from the rest of the space. A piece of furniture with character, a sculptural piece, a pretty wallpaper, or composition of paintings. The first places the eye is directed when entering is the wall in front and the one to the right of the door.
A HANGER WITH HANGERS FOR EVERYONE
One of the most appropriate accessories for this space is the coat racks. In addition to hanging coats and bags, if there are children at home, it is a very useful resource to leave the backpack and lunch box ready for the next day. Have a lift handy or install a coat rack at its height. From Derrière la Porte: Let’s go shopping bird bag and Musette come Coeur briefcase bag.

THE RECEIVER WELCOMES OUR HOUSE
The decoration of the walls helps to create that air of warm and welcoming welcome, which should always float in the hall. Place a plant or flower arrangement: they will give a natural touch to your hall. Balda Lack, by Ikea. Molding, for sale at Brocard.
IT IS IMPORTANT TO KEEP THE RECEIVER CLEAR
Bet on simplicity, which is always a success. The environment must be clear to facilitate entry. If you are going to place a piece of furniture, make it a piece whose measurements -especially the background- adapt to the dimensions of the space.
CUSTOM FURNITURE IN THE HALL
On many occasions, the hallways are narrow spaces in which there are no more than meters. The decoration and arrangement of the furniture must respond to the need to gain a feeling of spaciousness and light. A good idea is to place one or more mirrors. So, in addition, you can take a look at your image just before leaving home. Mirrors, by El Globo Muebles. The console is a handmade design made from the Isala table, by Ikea.
A SHOE FURNITURE AT THE ENTRANCE
Analyze your habits when leaving and entering the house. If you go barefoot at the entrance, in addition to a seat, put a shoe rack. It will help you create a decorative corner with a lamp and a tray for the keys. Everything, for sale at Ikea: Ställ shoe rack, in 0.79 x 0.29 x 1.48 m.
THE UMBRELLA … A BASIC
An umbrella stand is another of those useful accessories in the hall, especially in the winter months. Opt for a model made for it or any basket that you like. You should only place a plate on the base or line the inside with plastic to protect the container when the umbrellas are wet. Basket, similar in Zara Home.
