Entrance Hall Design

Entrance Hall Design

First impressions count. The front door and entrance hall beyond set the tone for your home – but it is also a chance to be bold with pattern and colour. The entrance hall is where you welcome visitors into your house – but it should also be a clear signal to you that you are HOME…and able to relax! This space provides a great opportunity to be a bit braver with colour and pattern as an entrance hall is a transition space. You don’t tend to ‘hang out’ in the hallway but rather move through it – this means that you CAN be bolder with pattern as you will not be sitting and staring at it (as you would say in the living room). Of course my partying days are long past so it might be that parties do still involve people hanging out on the stairs – but then a bit of bold pattern and colour at a party is no bad thing. An entrance hall needs to work quite hard too. No matter what its size – entrance hall design is key. Think about how you will use the space and what will keep it as welcoming as possible – but also functional for you and your family. Functional means storage – for shoes, coats, work & school bags. If storage can allow ‘stuff’ to be hidden away so you don’t see all the clutter then this is ideal – it makes for a much more relaxing return home (rather than picking your way through the debris of dumped school bags and shoes with stress levels rising)....
