The entrance hall is one of the most important areas in the apartment. She «meets» the owners and their guests, a big load falls on her: humidity, dirt, and reagents that are sprinkled on the streets in winter. How do designers design hallways to be stylish and functional? We show!
one Bright hallway with built-in IKEA wardrobe and tile carpet
The entrance hall from the project of designer Anna Shimanova is decorated in light colors, which visually expands a small (5.9 sq. m. including the corridor) and rather narrow space. Aesthetics on top! The entrance area is highlighted with a colored “carpet” of tiles — this is perhaps the only bright accent, except for the decor.
Functionality does not lag behind — a chest of drawers is thought out for small items. For things — a built-in wardrobe. He, by the way, from IKEA, that is, standard sizes. At the planning stage, the designer thought out a niche for its dimensions in order to build in a wardrobe. This way it looks like it was made to order!

2 Small hallway with stunning wallpaper and vintage chest of drawers
In the project of Natalia Vasilyeva, the entrance hall occupies only 2.3 square meters (not counting the corridor). This is a small but very impressive area. First, due to finishing. In this apartment, wallpaper is one of the dominants of the entire space, different rooms. And the hallway is no exception. On the walls we used wallpaper by the English brand Cole&Son, the Fornasetti collection. And for practicality, the lower part of the walls is paneled.
Tiles are laid on the floor — a black and white «rug» looks unobtrusive, but still spectacular. Of course, details add wow effect. This is an antique chest of drawers and a chandelier with pendants, as well as a mirror in a gilded frame and a wall lamp in a vintage style.
3 Bright hallway in blue tones
In the apartment designed by Anna Chesnokova, the general background of the walls is light. Blue is found in the master bedroom, but this is a private area. But the hallway is “open” to the kitchen-living room and stands out in color. The floor is also a zoning tool. At the entrance — glossy onyx-effect porcelain stoneware, while further down the corridor — laminate.
The designer explains the choice of this turquoise hue as the owner’s love for it. And reminds that the hallway is an area where they don’t spend much time, so you can afford to use brighter shades there.

four bright little hallway
The owners of this apartment were open to bright colors, which Natalya Balashova took as a call to action — there really is a lot of color in the interior, and the entrance hall is no exception. The yellow wall here “transitions” to the ceiling; colored hooks stand out against its background, which are both a functional and decorative element. And on the floor — bright tiles with a pattern in patchwork style, but more modern.
The color does not look too intrusive due to the right balance — there is also a lot of white here. These are adjacent walls, and a large built-in wardrobe for things. Take note if you want brightness, but there is a fear of “overdoing it, this is a great example!

5 Entrance hall as a front hall
Designer Milena Yanichkina turned an ordinary entrance hall in this apartment into a bright and beautiful room that “greets” the hostess and guests. The space looks larger than its area — 6.6 square meters. m. This effect was achieved with the help of color — they used light colors of walls and furniture; natural lighting — a wide and high glass partition connects the hallway with the living room, which lets in light from the window; glossy floor — it is known that reflective surfaces visually increase the space; built-in furniture — a large closet with facades in the color of the walls does not burden this area. And the ceiling, only 2.5 meters high, visually stretches the cornices, which are painted in the color of the walls.
