Hall: the face of the house
The hall is the representative of the style the house is going to have. It carries all the weight of the first impression, so you should not leave its design and decoration to chance. It doesn’t matter the size of the surface you have; big or small, but full of style and in accordance with the rest of the house.
In this room convenience also becomes a very important aspect since, in many occasions, the hall can be defined as that space in which to leave objects as soon as you enter the house. For example, it is a very common place to leave the keys, the wallet, to hang the jacket or to leave the bag.
Venis | Floor and wall tiles
Therefore, the material chosen and the furniture must combine elegance and functionality. First, you have to choose the floor and wall tiles. Ideally, you should select the same ceramic collection that you have in the rest of the house or, at least, in the neighboring areas and corridor. This provides a logical continuity, otherwise it would produce an image of disorder and certain chaos.
You have two options: to install the same material on the floor and the wall to create a more uniform space or to take advantage of the wall tile decorations to give it a more modern touch. In today’s blog we bring you both possibilities.
Venis | Indic Gris
On the one hand, we have opted for the new Indic Gris model for the whole area. On the wall we have combined it with Butech profiles to convey a feeling of exclusivity and greater luxury. Indic has a marble finish, so we wanted to give it a more classic style.
On the other hand, we also left you with a design in which we wanted to combine ceramic wood on the floor with Park, a Newport decor that draws waves of different thicknesses and enhances the relief. This type of space is aimed at those who are more dreamy, daring, and imaginative because it has a more innovative point.
If you choose this idea, you also have the possibility of opting for a series that has a base piece and a decoration. For example, in the previous design we could have installed Indic Gris as a floor tile and Cubik Indic Gris as a wall tile. The result would be a room with more innovative lines, but not as striking since the graphics and colors would have been the same.
Venis | Key furniture
The second point to consider is the furniture. You can’t miss a sideboard or console cabinet as it will allow us to leave all those elements we mentioned before such as keys, coins… You can use a small box or decorative plate to make it tidier.
You must bear in mind that it is advisable to find the symmetry and constant rhythm in this space. Therefore, the main piece of furniture should always be aligned with the door.
If you have more space, use it and put a wardrobe because it will always be great to keep coats, umbrellas or even shoes. In this case, you could place it on the side so that it doesn’t project a cluttered image as soon as you enter.
If you want it to be more subtle, you can choose to paint the doors of the wardrobe the same color as the wall and not put handles on it. It will work with the ‘knock knock’ system with which when you press the door it will open by itself.
Venis | Lighting
Another decoration accessory that is always key is a mirror. It enhances the amplitude and makes the rooms lighter.
Regarding lighting, whenever possible, enjoy natural light. If you want to create a warmer atmosphere, put blinds or curtains on the curtain and window, but avoid it being closed.
As for artificial light, we suggest you use lamps. It doesn’t matter if they are standing or hanging from the ceiling, but they will be more welcoming than spotlights or halogen lights.
As for decorative accessories, it is worth mentioning that sentimental objects can be a good idea. A picture or your favorite books can become extraordinary decorations. A vase with plants will also bring life and joy. However, avoid plants that are too big to attract too much attention.
Give it your most personal touch, but first discover all the ceramic possibilities that we offer from Venis to get unique halls.
