High-tech hallway features
One of the trends in design, hi-tech style, architects classify as late modernism, in which minimalism, pop art, avant-garde intricately intertwined. In the early 1960s, the British were the first to unite pop art with science fiction, which became the basis for the development of the “high technology” direction, which was strange at that time. Subsequently, the architectural style has become one of the components of the idea of interior design. The period of the 1980s approved the prestige of hi-tech, the headquarters of banks and corporations clearly advertised the wealth and power of the owners.

Ordinary hallways do not have windows, small in size, they have no open space. Some may simply not draw the fundamental principles of style, then they will be violated, and the interior will be disharmonious. The use of constantly improving modern materials and technical innovations facilitates the design of high-tech interior.
The layouts of most dwellings in standard series houses include hallways of a small area, worse, of a corridor type.

High-tech is suitable for decoration of small narrow hallways, in which exclusively necessary pieces of furniture are placed, without unnecessary trifles.

It is possible to enter hi-tech into small hallways using versatile and compact pieces of furniture, built-in light sources. Any hallway is required to perform its functions. For this, it is advisable to place a wardrobe for clothes, a shoe stand, a mirror, a chair or a bench in a small area.

The tile simply washes, dries quickly, the surface wears out a little, it is resistant to scratches from the claws of pets. But such coverage should be protected from the fall of heavy things, otherwise the tile will crack. The self-leveling floor is a luxurious solution, possesses the best qualities of ceramic tiles, and is also resistant to impacts. Laminate flooring on the floor of the hallway is high class, the room requires it.

A colored frame at the mirror, bright upholstered benches or ottoman will make the interior more cheerful. It is desirable to withstand selected tonal combinations, outlined surface structures to create a high-class finish.
Important! Keep simplicity and elegance, do not overload the interior of the hallway with color and decor.
When selecting materials, stop the choice on durable, environmentally friendly specimens resistant to mechanical and chemical influences.
The principle of over-lighting is best suited for the interior design of the hallway in the high-tech style. Competently planned light visually expands the space of the entrance room, makes it joyful and elegant. Typical hallways and corridors do not have windows, there is no natural lighting. Installed everywhere fixtures solve the problem of illumination.
Halogen stretch ceiling lamps provide top light. Zone lighting is organized in several ways:

- Lighting, mounted in mirrors and cabinets;
- Creating a pseudo window on the wall or ceiling;
- Spot mounted in the floor.

Furniture in the hallway

Convenience down to the smallest detail is the main goal of the hallway furniture. The color of furniture differs by one or two tones from the main color of the finish, unless the contrasting pattern has become the rule of decoration. The interior trick softens the perception, makes the objects unobtrusive, neat, without causing the hallway to feel like a mess. The doors on the furniture are shiny, glossy, create one surface. Furniture fittings hidden or chrome.
Compact modular furniture that carries a double load is welcomed, for example, an ottoman with a shelf for shoes; Closed wardrobe with side shelves for small items in the photo. Sometimes for the full use of space it is worth ordering furniture according to individual sizes. Glossy high-tech hallways, made to order, take into account the characteristics of the room, fully comply with the intended design, color scheme.
New-fashioned technical devices will serve twice: as functional devices for restricting access to an apartment or house on the one hand, as a decorative detail that complements the interior, on the other.
Note! It is necessary to have a mirror in the hallway, which, to save space, is hung like a closet door. Mirror, glossy planes of furniture facades visually push the boundaries, as can be seen in the presented photos.
