Correct planning

The modern trend is elegance and simplicity. When considering the design of the hall in the house, it is necessary to find a balance between fashion and your ideas about comfort, to provide a place for each member of the family. There are general principles for hall design:

  1. Primarily. the style of the living room should match the style of other rooms. The size of the room, personal taste and material capabilities of the owners are taken into account. Minimalism is laconic and practical, suitable for a hall of any size. The loft style requires a large space in which zoning is emphasized. Communications are part of the decor, and furniture can be massive. Provence means large windows, pastel colors and natural materials. Retro means conformity to the chosen era, fabric wallpapers, family photos and furniture characteristic of the era.
  2. The space should be intelligently divided into functional areas using wall decoration, furniture and lighting fixtures. Structures such as steps, partitions, bar counters are widely used for zoning. For the same purpose, curtains, flooring and wall niches are used. They should naturally fit into the overall picture of the room and cannot take up much space. Designers advise not to combine more than 2-4 zones in one room.
  3. The choice of finishing materials is of great importance. A wide range of wallpapers, decorative plaster with different textures, wall panels open wide possibilities for a flight of imagination. The combination of materials allows you to zone the living room. The design of the ceiling in the hall also helps in dividing the room into functional parts. Low ceilings are finished with conventional whitewash or tension structures. Light colors visually make the ceiling higher, and a glossy finish will create an effect of depth. High walls and a large area of ​​the room allow the use of painting, stucco molding and curly plasterboard trim, which look very impressive and highlight individual parts of the room.
  4. The palette is of great importance. Bright shades and sharp contrast of colors are very effective, but they are not suitable for everyday life, since they are depressing. However, much depends on the personal taste of the residents of the house. If the living room windows face south, there will always be a lot of light in the hall and there is an opportunity to use the colors of any saturation favorite by the owners. But, if the windows face north, the lighting will be insufficient. In this case, it is preferable to choose light colors of warm shades. The technique “drawing on white canvas” is becoming more and more popular – the decoration of the room is done with materials of white or pastel shades, and the furniture is chosen colored and bright. In any case, the palette of the hall should include no more than 5 colors, presented in several shades.
  5. Furniture and decor should be consistent with the style of the room. The color should organically fit into the overall picture of the room. Designers advise to choose furniture of the same color as the walls, but a few shades darker. Bright furniture is used in a room with a neutral finish. The space should not be overloaded with furniture. Modern trends suggest avoiding placing furniture along the walls. Now they choose the center of the room – a fireplace or TV, and around it they form the composition of the hall.
  6. A large selection of luminaires of different types makes it possible to create multi-level lighting in a hall of any style. With the help of chandeliers, sconces and table lamps, you can emphasize different areas in the room.

Features of the design of a small hall

Small and walk-through rooms have their own requirements for the design of the hall in the apartment. Small rooms are often combined with neighboring rooms – kitchen, loggia, hallway. This allows you to expand the space, but also increases the functional load on the room. Massive furniture cannot be placed in the interior of the hall in the apartment. The best stylistic solution is minimalism, implying a light palette and transforming furniture.

In walk-through halls, it is especially important to pay attention to the floor finish – it should be more durable, since it will be subjected to greater stress. In such cases, preference is given to resistant types of laminate. tiles and self-leveling floor. Soft types of cover are used only in the recreation area. Furniture should not block the passage of the room. Doors must be in the same style. A good choice is sliding structures that save space and do not block the passage.

A separate conversation – the design of the living room in “Khrushchev”

Tightness, thin walls, inconvenient layout and low ceilings – these are the “charms” of such a home. But even it can be made cozy and beautiful.

The main problem with the design of the hall in Khrushchev is the lack of space. You can make a redevelopment by combining a living room with a kitchen, an entrance hall and a balcony. The result will be a studio apartment, and if it is equipped with sliding partitions, the comfort of the tenants will be provided. If for some reason this is not possible, it is worth resorting to the methods of visual space enlargement. These include the use of reflective surfaces in the decoration. Glass partitions, mirrored doors, glossy surfaces visually expand the space. A similar effect appears when using 3D wallpapers or photo wallpapers with perspective and play of light in the interior.

A small space should not be overloaded with interior items, so the style of the hall in “Khrushchev” should be restrained – Provence, minimalism, classic or country. Loft and hi-tech are also quite laconic. The strict rules and ethnic features of the Scandinavian and Japanese styles make them more and more popular in small “Khrushchevs”.

The best color scheme is a pastel palette that increases the space. On a clean sheet of light shades, you can create a bright and unique interior in any style.

Another technique for visually enlarging the hall is graphics. Horizontal lines create the illusion of greater width, while vertical lines raise the ceiling. The stripes on the floor also create the illusion of more space than it actually is.

Correct lighting of the living room in “Khrushchev” includes a ceiling chandelier, spotlights around the perimeter and lighting of interior details with LEDs.

In “Khrushchev”, like nowhere else, it is important to reduce the amount of furniture to the required minimum. Mandatory elements are a TV and a sofa. Chairs and a coffee table should be discarded. It is recommended to mount the TV on a bracket on a long wall. In recent years, it has become fashionable to make a small fireplace in Khrushchev. The sofa is advised to choose a folding sofa. The modern market allows you to choose corner and classic models, equally suitable for use in confined spaces.

Finishing touches are some sofa cushions and window décor. Do not use blinds or roller blinds in a small room. Light and light textiles on the window add a sense of freedom.

Features of the hall renovation

Having decided on the design of the hall, you can start the actual renovation. Its main feature is the correct layout of the space. The list of work required includes:

  • getting rid of old finishes on all surfaces;
  • alignment of walls;
  • decoration of walls, ceiling and floor.

First, old wallpaper and plaster are removed, the walls are plastered or sheathed with plasterboard and primed, protecting the room from mold and mildew, as well as preparing the walls for further decoration. The floors are cleaned, screed and covered. The hall usually uses laminate, parquet, carpet and linoleum. All of these types of coverage have their pros and cons. The choice depends on the taste and capabilities of the owner of the house.

The decor of the walls is started only after laying the floor covering. The finish can be different. A practical and economical option for renovating a hall in an apartment is painting. Decorative plaster – textured, silicate, latex or Venetian can give a zest to the design. Wall panels look good – sheet, rack and tile. They can be attached to any type of wall covering. Facing with artificial stone is in perfect harmony with the wallpaper. Wood cladding looks impressive. Wall decoration with leather tiles looks unusual. Combining wall and floor finishes can produce unexpected results. The contrast of the dark floor and light walls will visually enlarge the hall. Pastel coloring on the walls, floor and ceiling will add volume to the room.

The next stage in the renovation of the hall is the windows. They need to be large to let in a lot of light. Experts advise be sure to replace the glass unit of the hall during the renovation. In the decor of the living room windows, heavy and dense curtains are not used. Instead, they prefer light tulle and organza.

Nowadays, the combined decor of the ceilings in the hall is in vogue. Multilevel plasterboard structures are combined with stretch panels and built-in lighting. But this approach pays off in rooms with high ceilings. In small rooms, compositions from drywall, decorative plaster or wallpaper look good.

Having finished finishing the ceiling, we can assume that the repairs in the hall are over.

Features of the interior of the hall

After finishing the finishing work, it’s time to arrange the furniture. The choice of furniture depends on the functional load of the hall. Free space is in vogue now. A modular wall will not look good in a small living room, but in a large room it will be fully justified in combination with bookcases or storage systems. Indispensable components of the interior of the hall are a sofa, several armchairs and a coffee table. They are complemented by pieces of furniture from additional areas – a dining table in the dining area, a desk in the working area, etc.

With the help of furniture, you can correct space imperfections. In a square hall, furniture is grouped against two opposite walls. In an elongated room, the space is divided into two zones using a sofa or table. There are a lot of similar options, it all depends on imagination.

The renovation is completed, the furniture is arranged. Everything can be irreparably ruined by a lack of lighting. Spotlights in combination with a glossy ceiling will bring romance to the interior and add coziness. A large classic chandelier will create an atmosphere of solemnity and luxury. Floor lamps, wall sconces and table lamps will help to delimit the functional areas in the hall and emphasize the elegance of the interior.

However, whatever you want to do in your living room, the hall should have a “heart” – a clearly defined center. It is around this center that the entire composition should be built.

The whole family gathers in the hall. Evening gatherings, communication with parents and children, watching TV, discussing events and problems – all this happens here. The room should be cozy and comfortable for all family members. The hall welcomes guests and communicates with friends – the living room should be ceremonial and somewhat formal. In an apartment, the living room should be a comfortable study, dining room, and sometimes a nursery or bedroom. The hall should be equally comfortable for all these purposes. It is very difficult to design such a versatile room, but it is possible. And, if you have enough imagination, you can create a real masterpiece for your family.
