Come in - design your corridor
Arriving. When we close our front door at the end of a hectic day, we return to ourselves. We enter, breathe and feel good. Your own four walls promise familiarity, security and give us the necessary rest from the bustle and overstimulation of the outside world. The first thing we and our guests see when entering our apartments is the corridor. Our corridor should invite us in, help us decelerate immediately and to leave unpleasant things at the door. A well-considered corridor design draws no attention to itself yet immediately leaves a lasting impression. For ease in our everyday lives, we should know where everything goes without thinking about it – coats, keys, phones, umbrellas, bags, purses, mail and shopping. We find our way around blindly, everything should have its place. Shelves, stools and wardrobes should be discreetly ready to take the burden from us and our visitors and to receive us. We put things down. We change our shoes comfortably. We take a look in the mirror. We are at home.
Set up your corridor according to your needs and wishes
Does your corridor correspond to the picture described above? Or are you among those who have thus far neglected the design of their corridor? Setting up a hallway can be a real challenge. The hall has a special role in the home: it is the entrance area and a junction. But rarely does the hallway get the attention it deserves. We pass through it to get to another room without much awareness. But even a corridor can become part of our living spaces with the right ideas. The difficulty often lies in the floor plan: too long, too dark, too many doors. Individual solutions are required in these cases. Make sure that the design of the corridor suits your needs, tastes and habits. When designing, be sure to focus on functionality. It does not matter whether your corridor is dark and narrow or big and full of light. Formal reductions make it possible to integrate different design ideas into completely different entrance areas. Limit the things in your corridor to include only those that are conducive to pratical living. Be brave and experiment with your hallway. Combine contrasting shapes, colours and textures. Smooth with rough and new with old. Tell us your ideas and let us advise you. Home is no place for short-term fashions and trends that you will soon not like. Throwing things away also violates our sense of responsibility. This means that reduction is the way to go.
