When your guests are about to leave, it is not a matter that instead of a sincere goodbye, they crowd in the hallway in search of scarves or gloves. If everything is thought out in your hallway, no one will experience any discomfort. This is fully served by the company's policy of the Ikea brand.
In the hallways, everything is thought out - from umbrella racks and folding seats for putting on shoes to a drawer of a nightstand where you can put an organizer with documents.
So what is absolutely necessary to place in the hallway? Let's figure it out:
- bench, bench or stool;
- shoe rack;
- chest of drawers, cabinets, basket, if there is a lot of space;
Even if you didn’t make this list for yourself, but simply blindly trusted the set of "Scandinavian dwellings", all this would surely fit in your apartment. Ikea offers a convenient compact modular shoe rack that will take over the functions of storing boots, boots and shoes. Many hallways have umbrella stands and umbrella baskets.
Floor and wall hangers allow you to freely hang coats and jackets and prevent clothes from wrinkling, as well as preserve the appearance of hats. A shoe rack or, among the common people, a shoe rack will not require a lot of space, but the boots and moccasins will be located vertically here, they will not get dusty and will not wrinkle
A full-fledged chest of drawers will allow you not to "chase" underwear and socks in the morning. The assortment includes branded dressers that match wardrobes. They are designed to fit in a narrow hallway. And all sorts of little things can be stored in special additional boxes.
In a spacious apartment, it is reasonable to place Ikea modular elements more freely, from time to time to rearrange them. Every time after such an update, you will receive a unique interior and cheer yourself up with it.
The pleasant atmosphere of your hallway is largely determined by the colors that the Swedish furniture company "professes". She produces household items mainly in light, pastel colors. Bright hues are also offered and can serve to create a festive contrast as long as it matches your idea of the interior. The overall color of the set seems to radiate coziness and tranquility.
The feeling is important, because, stepping into the hallway, your family members are immediately "charged" with the atmosphere of the house, tune in to rest and sincere communication. The color scheme, the harmony of furniture with the general decoration of the room - this is the source of real relaxation and an atmosphere of protection by native walls.
The rules for the coloristic solution of the hallway have now become more diverse. If earlier a small hallway was necessarily imagined as dark furniture with "extinct" colors, then today fashion trends are popularized by silver, lilac and ivory options. All of these can be found at Ikea. And add to the classic Scandinavian "doorway" interior enticing chocolate brown, elegant black and white colors. You will "shudder" from the elegant, unique "glow" of the atmosphere of the once boring corridor.
Adherents of the classics have every chance to focus only on pastel tones, timelessly elegant, but much more "picky" to cleaning. It is not forbidden to experiment with blue and mysterious purple.
If only one space does not have more than three colors, otherwise the interior has the prospect of being too colorful and tasteless.
What combinations of shades are most confidently chosen by the designers of Russian apartments from Ikea? Milk cabinets, combination of white walls with linoleum or light wood laminate. In this case, you can afford dark brown hangers or a chest of drawers. They won't look gloomy.
"Gray plus white plus beige basket." Also an interesting kit. The main furniture is light, the umbrella basket or shoe rack is light wood. In some series of the Swedish brand, drawers can be replaced with wicker baskets. It will add a "rustic" mood. Imagine what a surge of peace you will feel when you turn the key in the lock. You can find another place for a picture on the wall to match the "Scandinavian" cool "landscape".
The designers put their whole soul into their creations, which is why the red, blue or even black wardrobe as a figurative dissonance of cream or bluish shades for the general impression does not look pretentious. Since many hallways of a well-known brand are modular, the color can be easily "moved", arranging new and new metamorphoses for yourself on the modest area of your corridor.
Here's the problem: you need to fit everything in a tiny hallway. Where to "lean" the umbrella, pouf, remove the keys and hats? Calm down, gentlemen. There are many passages, thanks to which the hallway turns into a stylish and comfortable one:
For example, the authors came up with special multi-colored wall mini-hangers for gloves and keys. And hooks for outerwear, stylized under a tree, perfectly solve the problem of arranging clothes for a large, uneven-aged family
A practical escape for a cramped hallway is an open hanger that connects to the hat and shoe racks. Fans of eco-style will love this hanger-rack in the shape of a tree. This is also perceived as an element of decoration of the corridor
Don't forget to solve children's problems. Match the kids with low cabinets and hooks on the hanger that match their height. The assortment of the company includes all these items
An umbrella stand is ready to become a cute decoration find. It is modern, comfortable, does not take up much space and allows you to take many umbrellas at once, as well as dry them properly after rain.
Beautiful examples in the interior
How to "amaze" a typical hallway, how to inspire guests who enter your apartment for the first time? Of course, mirrors! To visually expand the space, stop at a full-length mirror. Take care of the selection of a beautiful frame, and the company will present you with these acquisitions to choose from. Walnut-colored veneer in a mirror frame looks great. To him in the same tone it is easy to pick up a pouf or a cabinet with drawers.
Buyers from Russia "stuck" to the mirrors with a turn. In them, the desired slope is set with a special lever. As a result, the mirror is convenient for viewing. Combine your "entryway window" with an original bag shelf that attaches under the mirror. The item is made of fine natural wood and is very durable.
Pay attention to the color scheme of the hallway mirrors. The most winning ones are white and “coffee with milk”.
If all the planned items do not fit on the shelf for bags and gloves, you can add an elegant chest of drawers in a rich color to this set. Lighting will be a fresh accent of the interior. Especially if you organize it in multicolor. A "fountain of rays" can focus on the "zone of admiration". Of course, the fabulous lighting will play well on the square where the mirror is located. What color will the lights have the greatest effect? Experts have chosen peach, raspberry and golden. But you can fantasize yourself and create a real "waterfall" of playing jets.
It is fashionable to highlight with light a flowerpot, a picture, a collage, a photo. Mobile lamps that turn in different directions, "controlling" the mood, are perfect for realizing your "inspiration plan". A few words about rugs. They also play well for beauty. Moreover, branded products are not only resistant to moisture and dirt, but also have a pattern of a real intricate carpet.
The main advantage of Ikea hallways is their quality. Its consumers appreciate it and agree on positive reviews. The furniture is durable, environmentally friendly, and fits the dimensions of any home. The Swedish company took into account the specific layout of Russian apartments, in which the hallways are often “flattened” or “chopped off”. But for the aces of design, nothing is impossible, and they "adjusted" to the miniature areas of the consumer's dwellings.
Even your corridor looks like a pantry, with branded Ikea furniture it will shine and "move apart". A bench, a wall-mounted hooks rack and a hats shelf - all made of gorgeous natural wood - isn't it an ideal set for a mini-format corridor?
As an unconditional argument for positive reviews, the openness of the elements of the headsets, designed according to the law “everything is always at hand”, appears. Natural materials, high-end art design and versatility became the best illustration of the demand. Russian middle class buyers vote for Ikea.
Summing up, it should be said that the interior design of the hallway should be given the same attention as any central room. To furnish a corridor in the Ikea style means to demonstrate good taste and care for others, to solve the problem for years to come. The choice of this style will not let you down in anything, because its benefits have been appreciated by millions of consumers. The products of Swedish furniture makers have long been revered.
