Entrance Hall: “Welcome” Ideas to Your Home
If you take the maxim that “the first impression stays” seriously, the entrance hall is fundamentally important in architecture. This small space not only welcomes the house, but can also perform several other functions such as storing objects, accommodating waiting rooms and reading areas, distributing the movement of the dwelling, displaying paintings, and so on. Finally, there are several possibilities to think about and occupy this environment, so here are three design guidelines to help you think about this environment.
Loose and supportive elements
Perhaps the easiest way to set up an entrance hall is to bring various elements into the space. Bench, armchair, sideboard, photo, plant. These are just some of the examples of how the environment not only becomes more individual, but also more functional in the daily life of the home. To that end, it is important to consider the movement of the environment so that furniture and plants do not complicate the passage.
Another tip is to think about how to hang a painting or mirror. These can change the sense of space, expand the space, or make it more cozy. Also, thinking of furniture with multiple functions, such as a bench that can store shoes underneath, is a great idea for further optimizing the space.
When the entrance hall is seen as an unobtrusive and forgotten space in many homes, it is uplifting in other homes based on the colors and materials used as the coating. Given the different textures and monochromatic themes of the rest of the house, the unique tones can be placed in a prominent place and bring a variety of rhythms and surprises to visitors to the home.
Regardless of the size of the entrance hall, or even if it is defined as an atmosphere, the simple fact of emphasizing the area of the door of your home can already make all the difference to the place.
Fixed and integrated furniture
For more complex projects, you can imagine large furniture such as bookshelves, or large benches that blend into the entire space and create a smooth transition between the entrance area and other residential environments.
It is always worth considering here that the texture, color, lighting of the material, and even the openings that allow transparency and visual connection, are fundamental factors in considering the overall composition.
