The entrance hall in a modern style in a narrow corridor should be compact. Here it is important to choose the furniture so as not to clutter up the already missing space. The color solution is to choose light colors: cream, white, pastel colors, and all materials must be resistant to moisture, any dirt. We need to think about the future design, understanding all the modern trends in the design of the hallways.
Features of the narrow hallway
On the advice of designers, optical expansion can be done by means of large mirrors, facades and decor made of glass or transparent plastic. Light penetrating mirrors, glass surfaces, glare on the gloss will greatly facilitate the close planning. The play of light using multi-level lighting with one main source of light and a pair of auxiliary, add space to a narrow corridor, comfort.
The color solution is necessarily light colors, ornaments are missing or small size. Vertical stripes raise the ceiling, and horizontal stripes lengthen the walls. At most one large picture or poster on the wall, it is desirable to distinguish between decorated and furnished areas, the jumble of details is inappropriate here.
Tip! The design of a narrow and long hallway with a narrow corridor with a fully mirrored wall looks very impressive.
Furniture sets are located strictly along the walls, the angular options of the minimum depth (35-50 cm), light shades, glossy or mirror, without decor and accessories, nothing superfluous, but the functionality is important.
Interior styles for a narrow corridor
A limited hall space needs to be properly arranged. Modern styles of interiors often have several mixed flows in the sources, which we will consider in more detail. Each unique style is the soul of the hallway, which of them is most suited in spirit is up to you.
The most unconventional style of all - high-tech. Hi-tech is the frequent use of chrome-plated parts, built-in equipment. The project of the design of a narrow hallway hi-tech involves:
- Non-standard lighting;
- Ornaments with volumetric geometry;
- Multi-level zones on the ceilings, on the floor, niches in the walls;
- All surfaces are glossy, glass or mirror reflect reflections.
The modern light industry offers ample lighting options: floor lamps (for example, large spherical shapes), wall lamps, directional lights, spotlights, or even LED tape in niches, in furniture, on the floor and on the ceiling.
It is better to choose built-in furniture, a minimum of accessories, which resembles the style of minimalism. No extra items, everything is concise, but catchy enough. Hi-tech likes bright colors, contrasts, metallic and glass materials, glossy, translucent surfaces. The lines are straight, clear, can be traced to cubism, although smooth, asymmetrical forms are welcome too.
Mirrors must be large, luxurious, in metal frames to create the optical illusion of a large room. Floor materials of different colors or textures repeat the outlines of furniture, indicate a transition from one zone to the second. More often artificial materials that guarantees simplicity in leaving, high wear resistance. Such a design for a narrow hallway can be seen in the photo below.
The advantage of natural shades, natural materials: brown, gray, beige, olive green or faded green, ocher color. Ethno and eco styles have something in common with each other, but exotic figurines, ornaments from Africa or India, furniture made of artful materials with a very beautiful decor should be present in ethno. Eco is, on the contrary, simplicity in details: wallpaper made from paper of neutral tones, curtains from simple natural fabrics. Decorated with bamboo walls or niches, imitation grass on a rich emerald carpet, clay pots with flowers.
Note! An interesting solution for eco style: part of the wall is decorated with stone, and floor spotlights create a very unusual effect.
The Art Nouveau style is emphasized refined, floral motifs are necessarily present, the lines can be smooth or straight. The character of modernity is stained glass, mosaic, the decor is so skillful, not to say that it belongs to the laconic eco style. But it is, because the modern style of eco originated from modernity. And the modern modern has incorporated something from other styles. From the classics he took stucco, metal forged parts, from high-tech color contrasts, niches, gloss, multi-level light, from minimalist functionality, restrained color palette. For this reason, modern is easy to create in the hallway.
Bright, unreadable colors, no halftones - a solid contrast to the contrast. Posters in the style of comics, Hollywood stars in reproductions on canvas, neon lamps. Without this, modern design would not be so. It destroys stereotypes, although very provocatively, introducing eclecticism. The main thing when creating an interior in a modern style is not to overdo it with accents, they should be moderate, especially in a narrow hallway hallway.
Japanese style is embodied minimalism, Japanese ethno style. A minimum of decor, a minimum of decorations, only paintings with Japanese plots, hieroglyphs as an ornament. The color palette is very simple, as a rule, bright, faded, muffled. The floor is stone, if the mat, then from a simple mat, paper wallpaper, bamboo blinds.
Minimalism is a lot of air, the light diffused daylight from large windows (regarding private houses), the walls are cleaned, if possible, or thin walls are left. Zoning is achieved at the expense of furniture, different colors, finishing materials, transparent partitions.
Loft style has appeared more for the design of large empty premises. Loft is distinguished by a rough finish of the walls under a brick or concrete, self-leveling concrete floors or artificially aged laminate wood with large boards, open communications - unpainted pipes, resembling a utility room.
The color design of the loft is more prone to subtle light shades: gray, beige, black inserts. The surfaces of the furniture can be glossy, which visually expands the room, also for a small hallway in a modern style it is better for the furniture to blend in with the color of the wall. For example, a brick wall, painted in a light gray color, is combined with the facade of furniture of the same color; they merge, without cluttering a narrow hall.
Fusion is replicated with minimalism, using only the necessary furniture and accessories.
Fusion supports contrasting colors of pop art. When making bright color accents characteristic of fusion, it is impossible to leave large strokes in the design of a tiny hallway. Colors should be as small as possible, it must be diluted with a basic light tone.
An important role in the design of small narrow corridors, lies on the lighting effects. Multilevel lighting design will make the room bigger. For example, the main light on ceiling spotlights and wall sconces with light direction to the ceiling will raise the wall. And additional lighting in the form of swivel spotlights aimed at the wall will expand the corridor. The photo of a narrow hallway in a modern fusion style with the help of directional light created a bright accent on the paintings.
Furniture in the interior of a small hallway
Furniture in a small hallway with a narrow corridor is needed compact, mostly in light colors, preferably glossy, the material is partially glass, transparent or translucent. Dimensions are very modest, the most minimal furniture sets:
- Bench or pouf;
- Hooks and shelves for hats.
If you really need a closet, you can choose a model without a crossbar, a depth of no more than 50 cm. The mirror only needs an attachment, for the expansion of a narrow hall it is good to use decorative mirrors. If we talk about the types of furniture, the preference is given modular or built. A modern-style entrance hall for a narrow corridor should be functional, for example, a bench combined with a shoebox, a pouf with a storage box.
Multifunctional modular furniture does not take up all the free space, combines several useful qualities at once. The main thing is the autonomy of all parts of the kit, the ability to replace them, rearrange them, combine different sets. The choice of ready-made modular models simplifies the task, you yourself can choose something suitable from the configuration, in appearance. Plus - it’s immediately clear where to choose, you don’t have to invent anything yourself. In the interior of a narrow and long hallway with corner furniture, every centimeter is filled around the perimeter of the walls so as not to obstruct the passage.
Furniture, manufactured to individual sizes, is very appreciated among fans of the most creative approach to the issue of repair. Such people are not looking for simple solutions when it comes to personal comfort. Spacious wardrobe is often very inconvenient to squeeze, and a built-in closet, located along the wall or in a non-standard niche, will not clutter up even the smallest hallway. Models may not be completely, but only partially built, they are called semi-built. You can independently determine the internal filling of the cabinet, decorative elements, materials, as well as anything. Want to highlight each shelf or closers on the drawers - they will fulfill your every whim! You yourself are now in the role of a designer! In the photo, a designer hallway for a narrow corridor, built into a niche that does not obstruct the entire passage.
No matter how strange it may sound, but the hallway must be refined, because it is her who is first seen at the entrance to the apartment. To achieve this goal, you can correctly choose the overall style and furniture that organizes the space.
