We design the interior hallway in the style of hi-tech
The hall, as the first thing that any apartment visitor sees, should look decent. It is desirable to design it in the same style with the interior of the rest of the home, especially if the transitions to other rooms are smooth, without the presence of doors. If the hall and the kitchen are distinguished by their ultra-modern design, then the interior of the hallway should have features of high-tech style. The main difficulty lies in the fact that for the realization of ideas there is nowhere to "roam" because of the limited area of the hallway. On the other hand, this particular style will help save space.
High-tech is the glossy shine of perfectly smooth surfaces, metal and glass, sometimes plastic. As a rule, artificial materials are used. The most popular floor finish is a large monochromatic ceramic tile. However, it will be advantageous to look and self-leveling floor. On the Internet you can find photos of the interiors of the hallways with 3D flooring. This technology allows you to implement almost any most creative idea and can turn the floor in the hallway into a real unique art object.
For walls, it is best to use plain decorative plaster or wallpaper. The aesthetic requirements of hi-tech are well met by relatively new types of wallpaper, such as metal (with a foil layer applied to the base) and fiberglass wallpaper. You can glue and ordinary metallic wallpaper.
Tip: if plain walls seem boring, large futuristic designs are allowed on the wallpaper. However, it is important to understand that such a pattern will visually reduce the hallway.
Ceilings perform perfectly flat - suspended or tension. Separate spotlights are usually mounted in the ceiling, as there is often not enough space for a large, spectacular chandelier in the hallway.

The entrance hall in high-tech style implies the use of a limited range in the interior, consisting of a maximum of two or three colors, as well as the absence of sharp contrasts. First of all, these are various shades of gray, white, muted blue, green and violet tones. To create accents in the interior, you can enter black, deep burgundy or blue and a moderate amount of bright pure colors.
Natural shades are least common, especially from a warm range. As well as natural finishing materials like wood and decorative stone.

Furniture and lighting
Hi-tech inherited most of its features from minimalism. In particular, the principle of "nothing extra", that is, only the necessary pieces of furniture with maximum functionality. The strict geometry of the forms, the utmost brevity in design and the absence of decorative elements are the bright features of high-tech.
The doors of cabinets and nightstands are made of glossy, frosted glass will also fit harmoniously. Furniture, furniture legs and other small elements, as a rule, metal chrome-plated. Required item - a large full-length mirror. In order to save space, mirrored doors can be performed closet. A stylish decoration of the hallway will be a composition of several small mirrors of various shapes.
If an ottoman or other soft seat is installed in the hallway, artificial leather will be the best upholstery material, but another dense monochromatic fabric will do. The color will look particularly advantageous options with a metallic sheen. On the Internet you can find a lot of high-tech interior photos, from where it is easy to get ideas for your own hallway.
Lighting plays a significant role in high-tech design. A spacious hallway will be decorated with a chandelier of some unusual, but concise form. It is better to light a small space with dotted lights built into the ceiling or walls. For convenience, a separate backlight should be provided inside the cabinet and near the mirror. A spectacular visual accent will allow you to create an application of colored LED strip.
