Therefore, you should try to arrange your hall in accordance with the concepts of comfort, harmony and practicality. Ideas of aesthetics and harmony of color combinations will also be useful when doing repairs.
Registration of the corridor or hallway should be necessarily practical. Indeed, in this room, regardless of whether it is small or large, there will be a large cross, therefore it is advisable to use wear-resistant floor and wall coverings — all dirt, water, precipitation and other adverse weather factors will get into the hallway and remain on the floor.
Requirements for the design of the hallway of a private house
Consider what the requirements should meet the design of the hallway in your own home.
- Practicality. This has already been mentioned above. The meaning is clear: a lot of dirt, dust and water, so the flooring, as well as the design of the walls, wallpaper, furniture - everything should be practical, easy to wash, clean, not to be afraid of reagents and household chemicals. By the way, a compact wardrobe in the hallway will become an indispensable convenient place for storing household materials and tools. Consider this moment when you repair.

- Wall covering must be easy to wash, not afraid of detergents. After all, against the walls in the hallway, even if they are under the stairs, leaning in street clothes. Therefore, the room will quickly become dirty. And if the walls are also light, the care for them will be necessary permanent. In addition, often on the walls, as well as on the wardrobe, other furniture and spray on the floor with shoes, umbrellas, when we undress.
- It is undesirable, making out the hall, to use thin paper wallpaper, which you can paste over, say, a bedroom or living room. Such wallpapers simply will not withstand active exploitation and will soon have to make repairs again. Be sure to choose a strong and durable wall covering for the corridor. It should be quite durable.

And soon we will have to repaint the walls in a darker color to facilitate their cleaning. The same will happen if you want to put a white closet or other too light furniture in the hallway. Such ideas are not for the hallway.

Therefore, before applying it will be necessary to carefully align the walls in the hallway, under the stairs, using plaster and putty. It will be interesting to look, if to paint a case and other furniture in a hall in similar shades of paint.
What features are there when choosing flooring for the hallway of a private house:
- Mandatory quality - durability. On the floor of the hallway often go in outdoor shoes together in mud on shoes, sticky sand, etc. In addition, sometimes you have to put heavy bicycles and rollers into the house, in winter - sledges and skis, therefore floor planning in the hallway must withstand all these load.
