The hall and distributor of the house

The entrance provides the first image that the visitor receives from our home, and for this reason we must take special care of the decoration of this space. It should not be an anonymous and cold environment, and in this case we can highlight other aspects besides the functionality. An entry that is strictly functional will surely be too cold for the visitor. That's why in this area we can afford certain concessions to the theatricality and even a bit of extravagance.

When we find old houses, the entrance is usually large and conveys a solemnity that we can moderate with the introduction of some decorative elements that provide an informal air, like a hat on the coat rack. At the same time we will try to avoid that it becomes a disordered space in which all kinds of objects are deposited, since this would give rise to an image that we do not want.
A warm entrance will give a cozy feeling to our home. A large closet that allows to keep coats, shoes, umbrellas and bags would be a good solution. The entrance also acts as an introductory element of the rest of the house and for this reason, both in style and in color, it must be related to each of the rooms. The same principle is valid for corridors and distributors, which must become elements that achieve coherence and unity with the rest of the house and that at the same time become the common thread between the different spaces.
It is important to take care of the lighting in these areas. The corridors are usually dark and it is convenient to spoil this aspect.
Being able to introduce a skylight or skylight in the ceiling, both in corridors and distributors as in stairs, is a good solution, although not always the characteristics of the architecture allow us to execute this solution. We must avoid that corridors and distributors become boring spaces with successions of doors reminiscent of a hotel. If we have the possibility of intervening in the architecture of the building, we will try to create entrances and projections or architectural elements that give rhythm and movement to the space. When modifications are not possible, we will resort to furniture and other decorative objects such as vases, mirrors or paintings. One resource that offers very satisfactory results is differentiating between differentiating the ceiling of the corridor from the rest of the house: placing a false wooden ceiling, lowering its height, even vaulting it to get more spatial interest. A corridor too long but wide enough can become a library with large shelves to store books, especially if we do not have a dedicated area for that purpose. If we try a space that contains a large number of doors, we will try to differentiate which of them are the main ones and which ones are the secuandarias. We will hide them by painting them the same color as the walls. We will pay special attention to the doors that contain crystals, analyzing what they let us see through them and considering if we really want them to show that image to the visitor.
On the other hand, the floors also require attention. We must think that when the doors are open different pavements can be seen, so we will try to have unity between them. In halls or distributors that are spaces of continuous passage we will place a resistant pavement. A carpet at the entrance will help protect delicate floors from the friction of footwear. It is important to place the switches in the distribution areas and to analyze in detail the use we are going to give to that space and what our needs will be.
