The shape of the hall

Before you, start decorating the hall must take into account the shape of this space (rectangular, elongated, square …). It is about finding the perfect layout that allows us to take advantage of all the space.

If it helps, you can draw a small plane on paper that will allow you to locate all those corners and areas especially difficult to decorate. Think about what kind of furniture or accessory will make up for you more in each area of the hall. An umbrella stand, a console, a coat rack, a bench or a…?

Delimits the space

A highly recommended complement in this environment is the carpet. It allows us to protect the floor of the entrance, prevents dirt from home, it brings warmth and well decorated with style.

Illuminates the hall

Another aspect of great importance in the hall is the lighting. This space is usually quite small and dark, compared to other rooms in the house.

Nor should we lose sight of the cobblers, perfect to organize and prevent dirt from entering the house. In addition, we can use this unit to place other very practical accessories in the hall: the. This piece is useful to leave the keys when you get home, correspondence … And last but not least, it is an accessory that decorates.
