Anteroom in a classic style

Design of the hallway in the classical style

The very first premise, where the hosts fall, the guests of the house, is the hall. Here they take off, store their outer clothing, shoes, brush their hair, apply makeup before going out. The original design of the hallway in the classical style has always been popular - it is "timeless", despite the abundance of modern solutions. This direction is very diverse - from the very ancient antiquity to the "Soviet" low-key interior of the mid-twentieth century.

When designing the hall, you need to consider:

  • there is everything you need - a hanger, a mirror, a shelf for shoes, etc .;
  • functionality - ease of tearing-undressing;
  • The room usually does not have windows, therefore it is important to think over the options for artificial lighting;
  • it should not be excessively cluttered;
  • in the autumn-winter period it is useful to use decorative mud-retaining mats;
  • Corridor equip in the same style as the rest of the apartment.

The classical design direction of the dress means bright, pastel colors. Bright accents are available in a small amount on draperies, in the decoration of furniture, paintings on the walls. All colors are preferable warm. Symmetry is another important feature of the style. If possible, it should be adhered to as much as possible: ornaments, architectural elements, decorative sculptures, furniture to place symmetrically.

Materials and methods of finishing

Finishing materials are preferable natural or qualitative imitation of them - natural wood, veneer, light marble, white wallpaper with complex texture, ornaments from artificial stone in several places. If the room is spacious enough, it can be zoned using different colors and textures of walls, floor, ceiling. Zoning is carried out with the maximum observance of the rules of symmetry. In a two-level apartment from the hall to the second floor leads a wooden staircase with carved rails, often it is carpeted. Under the stairs is a wardrobe or an entire wardrobe, separated from the hallway by a mirror, a screen.

Floorы сочетают по цвету со стенами, потолком. Паркет «елочкой» или рядами, хорошо обработанная половая доска, мозаика из различных пород древесины, мрамор, гранит – лучшие решения для роскошной классики. Такие покрытия дороги по цене, но очень долговечны. Для более дешевых вариантов используют ламинат, преимущественно светлый – белый, желтый, розово-охристый, бледно-коричневый. Напольная плитка укладывается «шахматкой» или в виде различных узоров с центральной, зеркальной симметрией. На полу зачастую располагаются скульптуры «под античность», каменные вазы, дорожки, ковры с цветочными узорами. Наличие подиумов здесь весьма приветствуется.

Materials for the design of vertical surfaces are used differently - paint, wallpaper, MDF wall panels. In "expensive" interiors use natural wood, varnished, inlaid from veneer, upholstery of walls with luxurious fabrics with fine patterns, natural stone. The obligatory element is a mirror, often framed by carving, gypsum or polyurethane pilasters. If space allows, a fireplace is created on one of the walls - it can be a shelf located in the center of the hallway, from below with a decorative stone the image of the hearth with a bowl is laid out, a carved or brick false fireplace is mounted. Also, it can be in a niche, creating a unique cozy atmosphere.

Ceilings in the classical hallway are decorated with plaster moldings, including gilded, its plastic imitation, volumetric skirting boards, ceiling tiles. All elements on this plane must be symmetrical. In a long corridor, two or three or more identical luminaires hang at equal distances from each other along the middle line of the ceiling. Good looking multi-level suspended ceilings, strictly white, almond, beige shades. If the chandelier in the room is one, its base is decorated with a volumetric rosette of stucco molding, imitation of polyurethane. A lot of spotlights are made out of smaller rosettes.

Furnishing is preferred white, beige, dark chocolate. Dark objects contrast with the light walls, floors made of natural wood, stone. Mosaic patterns on the floor can also be contrasting - black and red squares on a white background, golden-orange curls on a dark brown.

Ceramic tiles on the floor

The front lighting is of great importance. Light should be enough to easily dress, get dressed, tidy up your hair, if necessary, apply makeup. The amount of light doubles in the presence of a large wall mirror, in which the light sources are reflected. The make-up mirror with LED light bulbs along the contour looks original and modern - its shape, design, should be selected especially carefully, otherwise this element will be completely "beat out" of the general style.

The volumetric crystal chandelier will become an expensive "highlight" of a large square room. The main thing is to fix it strictly in the center. Additional lighting is located on the perimeter of the ceiling of the hall - it looks especially good if it is multi-level. In the presence of a sconce, stylized for candelabra with candles, it should also correspond to the general style.

Any kind of floor light for a classic hallway is not recommended.

Selection and arrangement of furniture

Pile the corridor with furniture, especially if it is narrow, small, not worth it - there should be only the most necessary. If elderly people live in the apartment, then little children are placed in the hallway, a sofa, a chair, a puff - to wear, to remove street footwear for these categories of the population standing is problematic.

Of the furnishings you need:

  • dressing room for clothes, shoes - it is sometimes replaced with an open coat rack;
  • shelves of different configurations;
  • mirror - preferably in full growth, with a highlight directly above it;
  • chest of drawers, bedside table for storing small items;
  • a compact sofa, an armchair or several chairs.

Decorative details

Original decorative accessories are also given attention. Fretwork, columns, curly door handles, "bronze" switches, leather upholstery of the door create a special atmosphere of the nostalgic past. Pictures, photographs on the walls in the classical interior are not welcome, but if they are, they should be the same in size, placed strictly symmetrically. Most often these are reproductions of masterpieces by famous artists.

Decor in the hallway in the classical style

Carved elements of furniture, facing the walls, ceiling, give the room a complete look. Wooden, clay, bone, bronze, porcelain figurines "under antiques" on the shelves emphasize the classic style. Openwork carving can be decorated with a partition separating the hallway from the living room. Decorative hooks, which hang an umbrella, key, hat and other must match the style of the hall. Matte white or dark glass in the interior doors perfectly matches with frosted plafonds on chandeliers, sconces.

Small hallway in classical style

A close vestibule is also capable of being beautiful, stylish, unique, although the classic in this front looks very modest. To a small room seemed as spacious as possible, it is decorated in light colors, decorating one or two vertical surfaces with large mirrors. The abundance of glass, light, a minimum of extra items will help visually expand the corridor.

The depth of cabinets here is preferable not more than 40-45 cm, they can have sliding mirror doors, if the chosen direction is neoclassicism. Upholstered furniture should also be small, necessarily selected in one manner. The small front is designed to be easy to clean so that dirt from the street does not run into the apartment. The floor covering is better to choose light, and from the stucco on the ceiling, walls should be discarded altogether.

Small hallway in classical style

This version of classicism, like Baroque, for a small area is not suitable - it is always executed with a "royal" scale, having a huge amount of voluminous decor. Use the same baroque elements is not forbidden - a mirror with a florid pattern on the gilt frame, a velvet-covered banquet, a small crystal chandelier. From the Empire style you can borrow a floor carpet with fringe, and rococo is used in cases where it is impossible to observe symmetry.
