Hallway in a classic style - decoration, color, furniture, textiles

Small hallway

The classic style entrance hall is very popular among home owners.

The classic style is often used for the interior of a house or apartment. The style received its characteristic features in the design of premises in the distant 17th century. It was in this style that kings and other representatives of the nobility decorated their palaces. The classic combines elements of luxury, restraint and elegance. Distinctive features - exclusively finishing with quality materials. It can be expensive furniture, mirrors, forged items and fine products. It should be noted that the classics are often used for the arrangement of houses with high ceilings.

The design in the classic style should occur for all rooms in the house or apartment. And the hallway is no exception. In addition, it should be noted that the first place in the house, which is seen by a person entering, is precisely the hallway. This means that guests have a first overall impression of the owner of the premises. When choosing interior elements, you need to think through everything to the smallest detail in order to get a really good result.

In addition, I would like to note that a hallway in a classic style will look equally stylish for both large and small areas:

  1. A small space can be perfectly organized in a classic style that will look elegant, discreet and concise. Simple forms of interior elements and a small number of them can visually expand the boundaries of the hallway.
  2. Large and spacious hallways are simply created for the classic style, which was originally intended to organize the space of large areas.

    When choosing a style in the interior, you must adhere to one direction for all rooms, otherwise the home will look ridiculous and inharmonious

    When choosing a style in the interior, you must adhere to one direction for all rooms, otherwise the home will look ridiculous and inharmonious. When choosing the design of the hallway room, decorated in a classic style, it must be remembered that this direction can emphasize the correctness of the shape of the room itself, but it is absolutely not suitable for decorating rooms with rounded walls or rooms with cut corners. In the second case, it is recommended to pick up something more extraordinary.

    For those who decide to independently arrange the hallway space in a classic style, the designers recommend adhering to the following rules:

    1. One of the additional design elements can be a stucco cornice. At the same time, when choosing this finish, it should be remembered that it should not be very catchy. Ideally, beige or white shades are suitable (matching the color of the ceiling).
    2. The design of the hallway, decorated in a classic style, in the photo of 2016 emphasizes the use of light shades for the walls and ceiling in combination with a dark floor. As for furniture, you can give preference to darker colors, thus it will be possible to achieve a special harmony in combination with light walls.
    3. Accessories should not take up much space, so as not to clutter up the space, 2-3 elements will be enough.
    4. Attention! When decorating a hallway, special attention should be paid to lighting. Better if it's bright enough.

      The design of the hallway will directly depend on the area of ​​the room. For small dwellings, it is advisable to leave more free space without cluttering it with interior items and additional furniture. For wide and spacious hallways, filling the space will be appropriate.

      Distinctive features of the hallway, made in a classic style, are:

      1. Restraint of tones and colors. The classic does not provide for the use of bright and flashy shades, color spots, which negate all the elegance and sophistication of the chosen interior style.
      2. Correctly selected furniture combines nobility and high cost, elegance and laconicism. It is important for every person that furniture elements are practical and functional. That is why the choice of furniture should be approached with special attention.
      3. Interesting and elegant decorative elements in small quantities.
      4. Sufficiently bright lighting. For classics, dim light cannot be used, there should be no dark spaces in the room.
      5. The surface of walls and other surfaces should be made in the same tone or have neat and restrained classic patterns.
      6. All lines and contours on walls, ceilings, furniture and other elements should be clear and simple.
      7. Mandatory elements of the classics are forged products, stucco and carved elements.
      8. The classic style involves the use of natural materials in furniture, decoration. Various synthetic and artificial substitutes should be avoided.
      9. Narrow hallway corridor

        The color scheme of the room, the organization of which takes place in a classic style, should be sustained in light, pastel and natural shades

        The color scheme of the room, the organization of which takes place in a classic style, should be sustained in light, pastel and natural shades. It can be beige, sand, pistachio tones. As a rule, a light shade (white, beige) is always used as the basis, and other colors become contrasting and are intended to place accents. Experts recommend using no more than 3 colors in the classics (one of which is the main one, and the others are additional). A prerequisite - the selected shades must be harmoniously combined with each other.

        Advice! It is better to refuse the use of prints in the classics. They can be replaced by vertical or horizontal stripes. At the same time, vertical stripes visually raise the low ceiling, and horizontal stripes will help to visually expand the space. As for the patterns, the maximum permissible in the classics is the use of simple geometry in the form of rhombuses or squares.

        Classic-style furnishings should be simple and elegant. When decorating the walls, you can use matte paint of the appropriate shade. At the same time, it is recommended to opt for matte rather than glossy tones, which will allow you to achieve greater comfort.  In addition, fine-grained plaster is perfect as a finish, which will help level the walls and hide various defects. Wallpaper can become familiar to many, moreover, a simple and convenient option. If they are a priority for owners, you should give preference to simple paper or fabric wallpaper without embossing, three-dimensional patterns or bright overflows.

        Laminate (imitating natural wood) or parquet is perfect as flooring. By choosing the right styling method, you can achieve a visual expansion of the room. To do this, you need to arrange the elements perpendicular to the long walls.

        An entrance hall in a classic style, judging by the photo, provides for the use of furniture in soothing colors. These can be light shades or as close to natural colors as possible. It should be borne in mind that against the background of white walls, furniture in the same color may seem a little dull and melancholic. To avoid this, it is recommended to choose a floor covering in more contrasting and darker shades. It can be oak or walnut. If preference is given to furniture of a contrasting color, then the walls can be made in light shades - cream, beige or gold.

        A massive wardrobe, a sideboard, hanging or corner shelves will become truly classic elements. In addition, if space permits, an addition in the form of a soft stylish sofa in light shades will be appropriate.

        As for the placement of furniture, it must be borne in mind that symmetry is used for placement.

        The traditional classic version of the hallway provides for the presence of such furniture elements as:

        1. Wardrobe for outerwear and shoes. You can use modern wardrobe models that are made with classic elements. In addition, if space permits, you can opt for a cabinet and a hanger. At the same time, the latter will become not only a practical, but also a decorative accessory element.
        2. A small chest of drawers or bedside tables, on which the necessary accessories will be placed. In addition, to store the necessary little things in the form of gloves, umbrellas and hats, you can use whatnots made of wood or forged.
        3. Small sofa or armchair. Their upholstery should be made of quality material - satin, jacquard or silk.
        4. The basis of the classic style is the presence of a sufficient amount of free space. That is why there is no need to clutter up almost the entire area of ​​the hallway with furniture. If the home does not allow the use of massive furniture, you can use the modern modular models offered by the manufacturers. Such sets consist of several sections, which can be used by combining and supplementing with various segments.
