If there is a lot of space in the corridor of the apartment, it allows you to equip it with all the comforts, but in a small area you often have to choose in favor of one or two most necessary pieces of furniture. The functionality and practicality of the interior in this case are valued above beauty or general style. However, if you wish, you can purchase a small stylish hallway in a small corridor, see the photos of such interiors below. Halls can be supplemented with various details in the form of hangers, obuvnits or mirrors, they differ in configuration. Choose the necessary simply based on the parameters of the room, as well as the needs of the family.
Features of the general form
The main thing for any hallway is the harmony of the whole composition. Each selected element must be in its place, and the colors and textures must be combined with each other. If the room is too small, you should not get carried away with wall details in the form of a sconce - small lamps will shatter the space into small parts.
The corridor must be fully lit. The abundance of light affects the perception of the whole interior and, by the way, on safety - in the dark corridor it is much easier to stumble about shoes to hit the furniture. This is especially important if there are children or animals in the family. How to choose furniture in a small corridor or hallway can be viewed in the photo with examples.
Hallway options for a small corridor
Since the space of the room is very limited by a small area and a large number of doorways, it should not be cluttered with a lot of furniture. As a rule, in the corridor setting they use a wardrobe, a shoe basket, clothes hangers, a small stool or a pouf. Such a set of furniture due to different design allows you to fit into any style of interior. If the place is very small, you have to choose one thing.
This may be a compact hallway that combines a wardrobe with a shoebox-stool. The whole composition can occupy only one corner or be placed along the free wall. The hall can be supplemented with a large mirror opposite or purchase a set with a mirror facade.
Sliding wardrobe - the best option for a narrow corridor. At the expense of the roller door system, space is usually saved, which is usually necessary for comfortable opening of swing doors. Sliding doors are often made mirrored, and for decoration, for example, sandblasted glass painting is used.
The hallway compartment is equipped with a large number of spacious shelves of different sizes and shapes. It is convenient to store any things here. Outerwear with shoes will fit in a large section, and on the shelves you can store clothes, as well as various small items. When ordering individually, you can choose the location of the shelves, the size of the compartment for outerwear and large items. Coupe can be placed in a niche, built-in hall for small corridors is the best option, examples can be seen in the photo.
Important! For a small corridor, it is better to purchase a narrow wardrobe model that can be placed along the entire long wall. With a width of 40-45 cm, this hall will be quite roomy.
This option is good for those who prefer the minimalist direction of the interior. A ready-made set consisting of several independent modules must be selected on the basis of the size of the corridor. For narrow, small rooms, a small stand, mirrors on a vertical stand and hangers for outerwear are sufficient. Alternatively, you can find a small modular hallway, complete with a compact closet where you can store umbrellas, gloves and hats.
If there is little space to accommodate a classic wardrobe, you can purchase a model with entresols. This is usually a fairly narrow cabinet with mezzanines at the ends. On the spacious upper shelves you can remove things that are rarely used. Such a cabinet due to the simplicity of design, coupled with compactness, will fit well into minimalist interior styles. How the hallway will look with a closet and entresols for small corridors can be seen in the photo below.
Important! Experts advise ordering such a headset on an individual basis. This will allow to enter the cabinet in a small hallway, taking into account its shape and size, as well as independently choose the appropriate colors and finishes.
A small shoebox will complement the interior of the corridor, not taking up much space. It can be as part of a whole headset, for example, a modular hallway or closet, as well as play the role of an independent piece of furniture. Shoe models are varied in size and shape. The most popular are shoe chests, stools, with a soft seat above the shelves. If the shoe is small, narrow enough shoe-slim, but the owners of a large collection can not do without a chest of drawers with built-in ventilation system.
In addition to the comfortable seating, the shoebox can be complemented with a shelf for the phone, a small locker for storing trifles, a mirror or hangers. When buying, you should pay special attention to the type of opening the valves. Often the shoeboxes have folding doors that can be locked using a system of magnets. This is an option for a small corridor, but if the width allows, you can purchase a cassette model with drawers.
If you can still do without a large wardrobe, then there are no hangers in the hallway. It can be ordinary hooks on the wall or the whole composition - it all depends on the size of the corridor, interior design, as well as personal taste. Hangers can be floor, built into a niche or closet, mobile or even ceiling, which is convenient for very tiny hallways. Corner hangers greatly save valuable space.
If the hall is corner
Such a corridor layout is the most difficult to furnish. At first it may seem that attempts to create a harmonious and practical interior are deliberately failing. However, the corner hallways have one plus - one corner can be decorated with a single headset with all the necessary parts for storing things. No need to calculate the depth of the shelves as in the case of narrow corridors, and corner models of cabinets, as a rule, are very roomy. Here is a photo with different variants of similar furniture for a small corridor or hallway:
The most important condition is the unity of the furniture set. It is necessary to think carefully about how to combine into a single whole a spacious high compartment for outerwear, shelves for hats and gloves, a place for umbrellas and a shoemaker. It is impossible to divide all this into separate pieces of furniture, the corner layout of the hall will not allow this to be done - not enough space. The angle should work completely.
If the hallway is quite small, you can place the furniture along the adjacent walls, let the headset take up the whole corner. So that it does not seem so cumbersome, it is necessary to choose models with rounded corners. Such furniture takes up less space, visually looks more compact and allows you to avoid accidental injuries during movement between rooms.
The abundance of materials, tools, shapes and colors in combination with modern production technologies allow us to realize the most original ideas of interiors. To pick up a hall for any style from conservative classics to an ultramodern hi-tech is not difficult. Modern furniture is equipped to be as comfortable as possible for a person. Hidden internal mechanisms, lighting, ventilation and disinfection systems - it all seems a trifle, but it makes life much easier.
Even the most picky visitors will like stylish and conveniently organized space of a narrow corridor. Design can come up with yourself from scratch, or seek the services of specialists - designers and professional workers. Skillful hands will make a beautiful and original room out of an ordinary room. Variants of interesting hallways in a small corridor can be viewed on the selection of photos below.
Whatever headset you choose for the hallway, lighting needs to be given special attention. Small rooms without windows require several sources of illumination, the main of which is a ceiling chandelier or built-in lights in key locations. Top lighting is complemented by wall sconces next to the mirror or opposite it. This technique allows you to get even more light due to the reflective surface. With the number of lamps on the walls it is better not to overdo it, one or two is enough - there is so little space. Shelves and cabinets with external and internal illumination are appropriate. How you can use the lighting in practical and decorative purposes for hallways and small corridors in the apartment can be viewed in the photo.
How to visually enlarge a small corridor
Simple and clear lines of furniture visually make the room more spacious, the open shelves of the headset perform the same role. However, in addition to this, there are other ways to visually enlarge the space:
- Light colors of finishes and furniture, especially the cold spectrum;
- Glossy facades, ceilings and floors (for this you can use floor tiles);
- Two colors in the wall decoration - dark below as in the brand itself, lighter shades above - above the belt;
- Cross strips on the floor, such as floor mats, or diagonal laminate;
- The cross strips on the end walls may not necessarily be a wallpaper pattern - the horizontal lines of the furniture will play the same role.
Compact hallways with proper decoration make a small corridor more spacious literally and visually, such as in the following photos.
To create a beautiful and practical hallway in a narrow small corridor, it is enough to be guided by the advice when making such a space and it is reasonable to approach the choice of furniture. Simple in form and compact cabinets and modular systems are suitable for any interior and fit everything you need.
