After all, in their own homes, the rooms are usually much larger - you can turn around in full force, carrying out on these square meters all their ideas, designer fantasies, any bold project. Considerable attention should be given to the design of this room. After all, the vestibule in a private house is the place where the owners of the house and their guests come directly from the street. That is, the main impression of the whole house will be formed according to the first room. Therefore, you should try to design your hall in accordance with the concepts of comfort, harmony and practicality. Ideas of aesthetics and harmony of color combinations will also be superfluous when doing repairs.
The design of a corridor or hallway must be necessarily practical. After all, in this room, regardless of whether it is small or large, there will be great cross-country ability, so floor and wall coverings should be worn - all dirt, water, precipitation and other unfavorable weather factors will fall into the hallway and stay on the floor.

- Practicality. This has already been discussed above. The meaning is clear: a lot of dirt, dust and water, so the floor coverings, as well as the decoration of walls, wallpaper, furniture - everything should be practical, easy to wash, clean, not afraid of reagents and household chemicals.

We'll figure out how to better decorate the wall covering in the hallway of a private house. Features:
- The wall covering must be easy to wash, do not be afraid of detergents. After all, to the walls in the hallway, even if they are under the stairs, lean against the street clothes. Therefore, the room will quickly become dirty. And if the walls are still light, then care for them will need a permanent. In addition, often on the walls, as on a wardrobe, other furniture and on the floor fly splashes from shoes, umbrellas, when we undress.
- It is undesirable, when decorating the hall, to use thin paper wallpaper, which can be pasted, say, a bedroom or a living room. Such wallpaper simply can not withstand active exploitation and will soon have to be repaired again. Be sure to choose a durable and durable wall cover for the corridor. It should be sufficiently wear-resistant.
- Choose a wall covering that is not afraid of moisture, and which can be washed. It is advisable to use not too light colors. For example, if you want to equip a white hallway, then you will only admire the beauty and purity of the walls until the first rains and slush. And soon it will be necessary to repaint the walls in a darker color to facilitate their cleaning. The same will happen if you want to put a white wardrobe or other light furniture in the hallway. Such ideas are not for the hallway.

Joints and the size of the replaced material will be absolutely imperceptible. In addition, liquid wallpaper is very textured and capable of making festive and chic any hall. And covered with varnish, they are easily washed with water and household chemicals.
- You can paint the walls of the hallway with usual paint. But the paint looks good on absolutely flat surface. Therefore, before it is applied, it is necessary to carefully level the walls in the hallway, under the stairs, using plaster and putty. It will be interesting to look if you paint the wardrobe and other furniture in the hallway in similar shades of paint.
What features are there when choosing a floor covering for the hallway of a private house:
- Obligatory quality is wear resistance. On the floor of the hallway often walk in street shoes together in mud on boots, adhered sand, etc. In addition, you have to periodically bring into the house heavy bicycles, rollers, in the winter - sledges and skis, so the floor plan in the hallway must necessarily withstand all these load.
- The floor covering in the country house should be easy to clean and wash, do not be afraid of water and moisture. Therefore, not the best option: to decorate the floors in the hallway carpeting or carpet. After all, wet cleaning for the carpet is undesirable, so it is better to carry out similar ideas in other areas of the house.
Types of coverage:
- Linoleum for the hall - though large, though small - should be chosen carefully. The usual soft covering, household purpose for the hallway is not suitable: it has low wear resistance. If you decide to do a hall with linoleum, then choose semi-commercial or commercial options, they are more wear-resistant.
- If you cover the floor with a laminate, then your hallway in a wooden design will look just gorgeous. You can choose appropriate style wardrobe and other furniture, paste suitable vinyl wallpaper. You can complete the picture and the stairs, covered with a laminate.

Here, a grout will come to the rescue, which needs to be carefully plastered with all the holes in the joints.

In this case, there is no special requirement for wear resistance and wash resistance. Layout and ideas for ceiling design can be, as in all other rooms in the house.
- Ordinary whitewash. If you want to simply and quickly deal with the repair of the hallway, then the ceiling can simply be whitewashed. Suitable if the size of the hallway is small.
- Decorative plaster. This is a more complicated way. But to look like this hall will be much more attractive than with whitewashing.
- The ceiling can be painted with paint. And, not only in white color. Depending on the design, it can be any color. However, it is still not recommended to use dark shades, as they will make the ceiling visually lower. But wallpaper, wardrobe and other furniture can be put and dark.
