What you need to know when designing the interior of the hall in the house?
The hall, as a rule, is the main room, both in the city apartment, and in the private house. Here they gather with the whole family, communicate, watch TV or films together, receive guests. Often the hall also serves as a dining room, where they organize joint lunches and dinners. This room can truly be called the heart of the whole house.
Since the hall is a multifunctional room, it is important to properly zone the space. For example, to allocate a food intake area, a recreation area, a fireplace area. There are several ways to do this:
- partitions and screens (deaf and incomplete, stationary and mobile);
- differential floor or split level ceiling;
- various finishing materials for each zone;
- varying degrees of coverage.
Options for the separation of the premises of the zone with the help of these techniques can be viewed in the photo of the various interiors of the hall in a private house. Especially if you make a room with your own hands.

The most popular design styles of the hall today can be called classic, minimalism, hi-tech, oriental and fusion. The classic implies a strict decoration of the room with traditional materials and refined, slightly massive furniture upholstered in leather or expensive textiles and soft color gamut. Such a noble style will suit calm, confident and partly conservative people.
Minimalism and hi-tech are ideal for the design of the hall in a private house of any size. These modern trends will appeal to energetic, active people who keep up with the times. The name itself already contains the basic principle - nothing superfluous. Only a laconic finish, functional furniture of simple geometric shapes and a minimum of decor. Minimalism in the interior is easier to reproduce other styles with your own hands.
Oriental style includes two opposite directions: Japanese minimalism and Arabian luxury. The first option involves a maximum of sunlight and free space, light furniture from natural materials and the almost complete absence of small parts. The design in the Arabic style, on the contrary, will appeal to lovers of the exotic. It differs in bright color scale, carved furniture and a set of interior accessories.
Fusion is a harmonious combination of elements characteristic of different directions in one interior. This style does not imply a clear framework and restrictions, but it is important to ensure that the objects do not argue with each other, and the design is complete and expressive. To create such an interior room in the house with your own hands you need to have good taste and designer flair. It is a good idea to study photos of such interiors in order to better imagine the result.

Each style has its own distinctive color palette. Classic interiors are usually performed in muted shades of green or blue, white and beige tones. Individual elements of deep dark colors that create the necessary accents are also welcome.

Minimalism implies the presence in the interior of no more than three colors. The hall will look stylish in monochrome or black and white. Minimalism allows the creation of spectacular contrasts to give expressiveness to the interior. High-tech differs light cold colors, an abundance of glass and simply glossy surfaces.

Arabic style is a real fairy tale. Best of all, the atmosphere of luxury will be emphasized by a gamut of red hues, however, deep blue, green, and purple tones will be appropriate. You can use bright, pure colors to create accents. The final touch will be the golden tones used in the decor of the hall. Japanese motifs in the interior, on the contrary, suggest a choice of soothing natural shades.

Tip: color solution is able to adjust the size of the room. For example, light walls and a ceiling (even when finishing a floor in dark tones) visually increase the room, light walls and a dark ceiling - expand. If you make one of the walls darker than the others, it will "go" in depth.
Hall with fireplace
Hall in a private house is even difficult to imagine without a fireplace. If the process of installing and operating this wood-burning fireplace seems too complicated, you can replace it with gas or electric. The easiest option - design falshkamina that is available even with your own hands.

Different models of fireplaces will be appropriate in a variety of styles, excluding exotic areas that traditionally do not provide for such an element in the interior. The main thing is that the decoration and geometry of the fireplace correspond to the general design of the hall. After all, natural marble and exquisite wrought-iron gratings will look alien in the hall in a minimalist style, but they will perfectly fit into the classic interior.
Above the fireplace you can hang a picture, photographs or panels in the appropriate style, put decorative dishes and interior accessories on the shelf. Examples of design of the fireplace area in the hall are presented in numerous photos.
Choosing the style of decoration of the hall in the first place, you need to focus on your own preferences, only taking into account current trends. After all, the interior, which corresponds to the latest fashion, will become obsolete rather quickly, and repair, especially with your own hands, is troublesome and expensive.
A win-win is a strict classic that always remains relevant. But you can create an expressive harmonious image, sustained in other styles. The main thing is to carefully consider the design so that the decoration, furniture and accessories are combined with each other, making up a complete composition.
